Reservations made with advanced purchase rates are non-cancellable and non-modifiable and must be booked within a minimum seven days prior to check-in. Your rate is based on your length of stay. If you have a confirmed weekly or monthly rate, in order to receive that rate you must stay the minimum number of nights. Should you check out early, your rate is subject to change.

Upon check-out, the room deposit will first apply to outstanding incidental charges, and all or a portion may be retained to cover damages to the room during your stay. At check-out, after satisfactory inspection, the room deposit will be refunded. Refunds over $100.00 will be mailed by check within 14 days of departure. A receipt will be provided at check-in verifying receipt of the room deposit, and again at check-out verifying the final balance returned.
