Our seven guest rooms are honorarily named (though not themed) after authors & one musician.
We do not automatically service guest rooms while you are checked-in, however should anything
need attention just let us know and we'll be happy to take care of it. Simple yet attentive.....
Bathrooms- Two guest rooms have private bathrooms,
the other five have use of 2 full and 1 half bathrooms including a claw-foot soaking tub with shower and a separate modern walk-in shower. If you
are wondering, the shared bathrooms are single person use, and with multiple loos
available waiting is not an issue.
Beds- All our beds have been recently upgraded with luxury mattress', the same as you will find in a Hilton, and yes our guests have been loving them.
Minimum age for children to stay is 6 years old. We love kids but younger ones tend to have a harder time undestanding noise level etiquette.
Cancellations, 1-6 Nights- Rooms canceled
within a week of their date will be billed to your credit card unless
they are re-booked by another guest, in which case there is no charge. There are no
charges for rooms canceled outside of a week's notice.
Cancellations, 7 or more Nights- Includes the sum of 2 rooms (ie: 2 rooms reserved for 4 nights each = an 8 night reservation). A $100 non-refundable deposit is charged when the reservation is made. The remaining balance is charged 1 month prior to arrival, at which point canceled nights are not refundable unless re-booked by another guest. A mid week cleaning and laundry change will be arranged and we are happy to provide further room attention if requested.
2nd Bed- Upon request we can have a twin mattress brought into the Beverly Cleary, Sherman Alexie, Ken Kesey & Elliott Smith Rooms. Please arrange with us ahead of your arrival, the cost is $10 / night. Parties of 4 would need to reserve 2 rooms.
Holidays- We are open everyday. However, certain holidays you need to check-in beforehand &
check-out afterwards: Fourth of July, Thanksgiving & Christmas Eve/Christmas. This is known as a stay-thru.
Groups- We have a 2 room per party limit... apologies but we do not accept group reservations as we have found that vacation rentals are more suited for them. We ask, too, that you not try to get around this by booking rooms separately.
Weddings / Events- Unfortunately due to city code we are unable to host weddings or events here.
Check-In / Out- Rooms are ready by 2 pm, though early and late arrivals are fine and not a problem.
Room check-out is by 11am, we can store your luggage for the day and you are welcome to relax in the social rooms for the afternoon.
Room Heat & A/C- All guest rooms have
in-room heating controls, all but the Gao Xingjian and the Elliott Smith
have window a/c units in the summer.
The Continental Breakfast
is ready when you are, no having to work with our schedule! What is offered: strong coffee, tea, dairy/soy/almond milks, orange juice & hot chocolate, yogurts, locally made bagels & bread with an assortment of spreads; fruit, muffins, scones & other pastries for quick picking; a selection of cereals; instant pancake mix and oatmeal for hot alternatives. Our bagels are vegan, and gluten-free options are available, too.

kitchen that you are welcome to cook in & prepare meals, as well as
storage and a fridge. We ask that you leave the space clean when you are finished.
