1What is the cancellation policy?
Guests have up until 7 days before their check-in date to cancel a reservation. On the 6th day, unless cancelled before, full payment for the room(s) will be charged to the credit card on file. If a reservation is made during a special event, the balance must be paid in full at the time of booking and is non-cancellable and non-refundable.
2What if I have to cancel a reservation within the 7 days?
As our policy states, failure to notify us of a cancellation before 7 days until check-in will result in a non-refundable charge of the full amount according to the guest's reservation. For an administrative fee of $100, we will gladly turn the reservation balance into a credit to be used for a future stay. We need 48 hours prior notice when rescheduling and the credit must be used within the same calendar year.
3What is the policy for booking during special events?
If a reservation is made during a special event (see dates below) the reservation is non-cancellable, non-refundable, and must be paid in full at the time of booking. Depending on the special event, there may be a two- or three-night minimum to book during that time.
