Damages Policy:During your stay, the room and all equipment and furniture should be treated with care and kept in order. Immediate notification to our hotel staff will be expected of any damages or breakages in the room. You (The Tenant) is financially responsible for any damage to the room. This includes losses caused by you (The Tenant) or a third-party negligent actions and behavior. A summary check will be made of the room check-out time. However, a more detailed review of the condition of the room and all equipment and facilities will be made soon after check-out and before another guest occupies the room. The Tenant is responsible for any damages or breakages found that are over and above normal wear and tear and usage. In this case, a detailed statement of damage along with an invoice for the repair or replacement cost will be sent by email or text immediately. Any costs will be deducted from the deposit immediately if this is still possible. Any costs will be claimed by return if they are greater than the deposit or where the deposit has already been returned. Please note, immediate notification after check-out of any damages to, breakages in or issues with the room is expected.
Our Hotel can then take any necessary action to resolve any issues and make sure all the equipment and facilities are working and provided as expected. Damage deposit is fully refundable upon check-out and subject to damage inspection of the accommodation. The deposit must be paid upon check-in by credit card, along with a balance and is fully refunded at the check-out if the room is in good order and the company does not have any claims. The costs of damages or cleaning beyond what would be expected after responsible usage of the apartment will be deducted from the deposit, and the refunded amount will be the remainder of the damage deposit. Please remember Entire rooms ARE fully NON-smoking! At the check-in time, you will be asked to sign a document that you agree to a fine ($250 minimum) if any traces or scents of smoking are found in the room.
Furniture Clause:Please note that all furniture is placed in the guest rooms specifically for a reason. Do not for any reason move any furniture around within the guest rooms. If any furniture (beds, TV's, dressers, night stands, etc) is moved out of its original placement, you will be subject to a minimum incidental charge of $100. Additional charges beyond the $100 will be based on assessed damage to any of the items that have been moved or any damage to the room that was created due to the furniture being moved.
Incidentals Clause:Guests are responsible for maintaining the condition of furniture, fixtures, and equipment inside the rooms as they have found them upon arrival in the room. If something is already damaged, please take a photo and/or notify a Guest Services Team member immediately so it can be properly documented. Should you decide to take any of the furniture, fixtures, and/or equipment that is inside the rooms out of the rooms or home with you, you will be subject to the following charges and we will assume you approve a corresponding charge to your account as follows:

Pre-existing damages or room issues must be reported to the customer support immediately after registration to avoid responsibility and potential charges. The hotel allows guests, with permission, to receive occasional packages and special deliveries at the property but MUST get approval first from customer support. We are not responsible for the packages or their contents or the storage of them. Sing your heart out and have passionate conversation all day long, but from 10:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. the whole property goes into hush mode for what we like to call quiet time (or sleep time).

Kitchen Room Policy:There is no direct heat or open flame cooking allowed in any of the rooms for the health and safety of all guests on site. No hotplates, griddles or BBQs are allowed in any of the rooms. If you are found cooking in a room, this is grounds for immediate termination of your rental agreement. No refunds will be given if you are terminated for violating Kitchen Room Policy.
