$27.95 - 11pm - 1am
$37.95 -after 1am
If you think you will be more than 2 hours delayed, please notify us as soon as possible. Failure to do so will signal a no-show and can lead to the loss of your reservation to another traveler. If your reservation is forfeited, but you arrive more than 2 hours late, all efforts will be made to accommodate you, but it may be in a different room, with different services and prices. Any alternative accommodation will be at the prevailing rate, which may be more than what you booked on your forfeited reservation.
If you want to CANCEL or CHANGE your reservation, you must notify us at least 3 DAYS BEFORE ARRIVAL, so that an alternate can be found to take your spot. We reserve the right to charge your credit card in full for cancellations made less than 3 days before arrival. ALL CHANGES MUST BE MADE IN WRITING.

Note: TAXES ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE BOOKING PRICE.
