Once you choose either the 50% refund or the six-month credit at the time of cancellation, we do not offer the unchosen option after the fact. If you choose the six-month credit and apply the dollar amount to a future stay, no refunds are given if there is a balance less the credit amount. If you apply a six-month credit and the rate is higher, you are responsible for paying the balance due. You may only move your dates of stay once after the original cancellation date. If the original reservation is canceled and the guest takes a 6-month credit, they are not permitted to move the dates or cancel again. If the guest calls to cancel a reservation with a credit applied there will be no refund or credit option offered.



All Guests have use of the on-site parking at the hotel for standard vehicles only. Please contact the front desk at (866) 990-6852 for local boat trailer storage information.

Additional fees for smoking in the room may be assessed as damages.
