We serve walk-in travelers on a first-come, first-served basis. Feel free to call ahead to check availability prior to your arrival. Those who prefer to make advance reservations may do so through postal mail and advance payment by money order or (if mailed more than 14 days in advance) a personal check for the amount of the first night’s stay.

Reservaions can also be made through Airbandb and Hostelworld for certain rooms at an additional fee. Payment in full is required upon arrival, and we only accept cash, money orders, and travelers’ cheques at the desk.

We do NOT accept reservations over e-mail.

We do NOT accept reservations over the telephone. We ARE happy to take your call or email to answer general questions.

We do NOT accept credit cards online, via e-mail, via telephone, or at the front desk.

If you call or e-mail us to make a reservation, we will politely point you to this page that you are reading right now.
