Deposit/Payment Policy

A deposit of 30% or one night’s rental, whichever is greater, is required on all advance reservations. We accept cash, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express. Personal checks will only be accepted for advance deposits if we receive the check at least 10 days in advance. We require all balances to be paid in full at the time of check-in. Personal checks are not accepted at check-in.

Cancellation Policy

If a reservation is cancelled 10 days or more prior to your scheduled arrival, a refund less a $25.00 processing fee will be issued. If it is cancelled less than 10 days prior to your scheduled arrival the deposit is forfeited. No refunds will be issued for late arrivals or early departures. No reduction in the number of nights is permitted within 10-days of your arrival date. Nights may be added to a reservation without penalty at any point based on availability. Guests are asked to confirm the arrival and departure dates on their confirmation letter and notify the hotel immediately if they find a discrepancy.

Security Deposit Policy

We require a credit card imprint for any incidentals or extra charges incurred during your stay. Because we are a unique property and all of the units are individually owned, we strictly enforce unit inspections.
