You may cancel this reservation up to 14 days before your stay, with a $25 processing fee. If you cancel within 14 days of your scheduled stay, there is no refund unless we are able to book the room to someone else.

If you wish to pay with cash, you may send a check for the amount of the first night’s stay. If you cancel up to 14 days of your scheduled stay, you will receive a full refund. If you cancel within 14 days, there is no refund unless we are able to book the room to someone else.

Check-in and check-out

Check-in is by appointment, normally between 4-8 p.m. We will be waiting for you ONLY at the time you specify on the form below because we do not have a 24-hour front desk like motels. If you don’t arrive (and don’t call/email to change your check-in time) when you have told us to expect you, your reservation/deposit could potentially be forfeited. We are sorry but We cannot accommodate check-ins/reservations later than 8 p.m. However, in rare circumstances or if you’re a returning customer, we might be able to arrange a self-check-in by prior arrangement. Early check-ins might be possible, at no extra charge, if the room is ready. Check out at 11 a.m.
