Policies & FAQs

Even the best of places have a few rules. Please read through our policies below and make your stay a great one.

Reservation Policies

When booking your room a credit card is required to hold all reservations.

72-hour notice is required for changes or cancellations of standard reservations, and 14-day notice during the holiday periods (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s and Easter) as well as for group reservations. A $25 per room processing fee will be charged on canceled or changed reservations made prior to these cut-offs. Cancellations or changes made within these time periods will result in a charge equal to the first night room charge. Early departures are also subject to this fee. Your Reservation is cancelled once you receive a Cancellation email from us.

Are we open during the holidays?

During Spring Break, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s holiday periods our regular 72-hour cancellation policy changes over to a 14-day cancellation policy and some holidays have a two-night minimum stay as outlined below:

Spring Break:

March 24 – April 06, 2024 – 14-day cancellation policy


November 27 – 29, 2024 – 2-night minimum stay, 14-day cancellation policy. There are no departures or arrivals on Thanksgiving Day.

Christmas & New Year’s Eve:

December 24, 2024 – December 31, 2024 – 2-night minimum stay, 14-day cancellation policy

Please note we are Closed on December 25, as our staff is at home spending the day with their families. This applies to our restaurant, and also means we are unable to allow guests to check-in or check-out on this day and there is no housekeeping service.

Group Policies

When you reserve 6 or more rooms you are categorized as a group and subject to different reservation and cancellation policies. Please contact us directly by phone (760) 367-3505 or by email [email protected] to inquire about group bookings.
