We love kids, our property is oriented toward families who are interested in learning how to embody a lifestyle of service with the homeless. Children up to age 18 must be accompanied by a parent and must stay in the parent’s room. Due to the tiny size of our units, it may be a challenge to have infants ages 0-2 years of age. At this time we do not offer cribs or changing tables.

A valid credit card is required to make a reservation. We accept Visa and Mastercard. Your credit card will be authorized for the full reservation amount at the time the cancellation period expires (see cancellation timeframes above). If using a debit card, please note that your bank will hold your funds at this time; for this reason, bank cards are typically discouraged for all hotel reservations. Your credit card and a valid ID must be presented at check in, at which time you will be charged. No other forms of payment are allowed.

The design of space includes 4 fully private shower restroom suites, as well as 4 fully private traditional restroom suites. All suites lock for your privacy. To provide the perfect 24hr stay we clean this facility 4 times a day, to ensure cleanliness and excellence. The RSL also encompasses a laundry facility for your comfort.

Please respect the privacy of our neighbors and do not park in front of their homes or in their driveways; you may be towed. Parking is also restricted in front of our Community Market. We provide every guest with a parking permit, if displayed correctly on their dash or rearview mirror, guests will not be towed. We are not responsible for damage to vehicles, or damage or loss of property left in parked vehicles, regardless of location.
Parties, Events and Gatherings
We are a small Inn at the front of a master planned neighborhood for the formerly homeless. We want you to have a great time while onsite. Along those lines please do not come here to party. Guests who disturb other guests will be asked to leave and will not be provided a refund. Thinking of inviting some friends over? Please check with us first! Due to the intimate nature of our property, private events that include guests not staying at the property require approval. A separate events agreement and additional fees may apply. No parties, group gatherings, company meetings, etc. may be held without prior approval, and may forfeit your reservation without refund.
We LOVE your fur babies! At this time we only allow dogs onsite. Tiny Homes are tiny, with little room for multiple dogs. We allow a max of 1 dog. All dogs must be with their owners at all times, and while outside on a leash. You may not leave your dog locked in your tiny home without you for any reason. Dogs can not be left outside for any reason. We issue a pet fee of $25 per dog. Additional fees may apply if damage is caused to the unit in any way. We also will apply an unauthorized pet fee of $100 if additional pets are found or reported. Please pick up after your dogs, we have doggy pick-up bag stations by the Community Cinema, and at our onsite “Jake’s Dog Park”. We will issue a $50 fee for dog’s that are not picked up after.
We do not provide telephones in the guest rooms because so many guests travel with their own phones. We offer a pay phone located in the breeze way of Unity Hall.
We can't live without it! Each Tiny Home, Trailer, and Yurt is set-up with their own WiFi. Please see the CPE unit that is located in your unit for access codes and set-up. Our majestic tipis do not have access to wifi. UPDATE: Please bring a hotspot to ensure you can receive wifi during your entire stay.
Please show respect for other guests and keep noise to a minimum between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 9:00 a.m. We are a small Inn. Guests who disturb other guests will be asked to leave and will not be provided a refund.
All guests must be registered with the front desk at the Community Inn Office. Only authorized guests may occupy guest rooms. Rooms may not be sublet, advertised for resale, or otherwise occupied by non-registered guest(s) without prior management approval. A usage fee will be charged for unauthorized guests.
