Check Policy

  • If a personal, business, or cashier’s check is received less than 14 days prior to guest arrival, the check will be returned unprocessed and the reservation will remain guaranteed under the credit card used to secure the deposit.

Credit/Debit Card Charges

  • The credit or debit card used to reserve your reservation will be required for check in upon arrival. If paying with a credit card, you must present the credit card at check-in unless a previously arranged third party credit card authorization is completed for the booking.

Guests using a debit card in place of a credit card acknowledge unused funds are released upon checkout and may take 3–10 business days for domestic banks and up to 30 days for international banks to become available through their financial institution.
