Hotel Policies

Book With Confidence

The health and safety of our guests and our team is of paramount importance. Please take a moment to review our COVID-19 Healthy and Safety Protocols, which have been  developed in concert with those set by the CDC, the Rhode Island Hospitality Association, the State of Rhode Island and other related government authorities. We will continue to evolve these protocols as needed.

Deposit/Cancellation Policy

A credit card is required to be on file when the reservation is made.  We are taking a 50% deposit for all standard rooms and 100% deposit for all suites.

For reservations arriving between Memorial Day Weekend through the end of October, a 14-day cancellation policy applies. Reservations arriving November up to Memorial Day have a 48-hour cancellation period. Cancellations within the applicable time period of the arrival date will forfeit any deposits; cancellations made outside of the applicable time period will receive a full refund, less a $40 processing fee
