Frequently Asked Questions
Is there anything I should know before I book my vacation?
Yes, for the best experience, easiest check-in and lowest cost always book direct with the property if possible. Third party sites such as VRBO and TripAdvisor are a convenient way to search multiple properties at once, but they will have to add to our cost to cover their fees.
When can I check-in and what time must we check-out?
Check -in is after 3pm CST and check-out is before 10am CST. As soon as housekeeping has released your room you can check-in. While delayed check-ins are uncommon, occasionally extra time may be needed to ensure it’s ready for your arrival.
