To guarantee a reservation, a deposit equal to one night’s lodging is required. Deposit must be received when the reservation is placed. All advance deposits and credit card guarantees are credited to the last night of the reservation. Balance is due in full upon arrival. All major credit cards are accepted.

If cancelling less than 7 days prior to arrival, your entire deposit will be non-refundable. If 7 or more days advance notice is given prior to arrival, a minimum $35 cancellation fee will be deducted from your deposit and the remainder of the deposit will be refunded. Cancellation policy for special event dates may vary.

Cancellations of Priority Check-In options must also be made with 7 or more days advance notice or the Priority Check-In fee becomes non-refundable.

No cancellation penalties will be assessed if cancelling within 24 hours of booking, provided that the cancellation is requested more than 2 days before the arrival date.

Should you leave before your reservation expires, you will be charged for all remaining days.

  • If there is a second complaint, everyone but the registered guest will be required to leave the guest room.
  • In the event of a third complaint, the registered guest will be evicted from the hotel without refund.
