A prepayment of 50% of the total booking amount will confirm your reservation with the balance due two weeks before arrival. For reservations for more than 5 nights, or more than one room or any reservation within two weeks of the arrival date, 100% prepayment is required.
A two night minimum on all weekends and holidays may be required. Some holidays and special seasonal travel times may require a three day minimum stay.
The Ghost City Inn is an intimate Bed and Breakfast Inn, consequently cancellations affect us significantly. Cancellations require 2 weeks' notice prior to arrival date. If reservations are for more than one room or for more than 5 days, cancellations require 30 days’ notice prior to arrival date. If cancellation is made prior to the required time the deposit will be refunded, less $20.00 per room cancellation fee. If cancellation is made within two weeks or, if applicable, 30 days of arrival date we may refund the deposit less $20.00 cancellation fee, if we can re-book all nights.
We strongly encourage obtaining travel insurance for your reservation as we cannot be held liable for emergencies of any kind and will not be able to make exceptions to our cancelation policy.
Should it be necessary for guests to depart earlier than the confirmed departure date, or change reservations in any way, guests will be responsible for the full amount of the intended stay unless we are able to re-book all nights.
Room rates do not include taxes.
Changes to confirmed reservations are subject to a $20 administrative fee.
Check-in time is between 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm. Please advise us of your estimated check-in time when you make your reservations. Since we do not live at the inn, we go home at 6:00 pm. Therefore, after 6:00 pm, a late check in fee of $20.00 may be charged. If you are going to be late, call us please. If you arrive early, check with us, as we may be able to accommodate early check-in.
Check-out time is by 11:00 am. Guests who check out late will be flogged.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and cash.
Occupancy is limited to two (2) persons only per room with exception of the Miner's Suite, which can sleep three. This is strictly enforced due to local fire restrictions.
Smoking is allowed on the courtyard patio only, no cigars please. Absolutely no smoking inside the inn or on the veranda! This is strictly enforced and violations of this smoking policy will result $100.00 cleaning fee added to your bill.
Sorry, we do not accommodate children under the age of 14. This is not because we don’t like children, it is simply because we attempt to provide a quiet, relaxing atmosphere here, and children are not always "agreeable" with our desires.
Pets may be pre-approved by contacting us first and can only be accommodated in the Miner’s Suite or the Western Room. At time of booking you will be asked to sign our pet agreement and pay a non-refundable cleaning charge of $50.00. Additionally, you are responsible for clean-up or damages caused by your pet.
Consumption of alcohol is allowed, however, excessive drinking, bringing large coolers into the rooms and parties are prohibited. Guests who violate this policy will be asked to leave the property without refund.
There is a full flight of stairs from the sidewalk leading up to the front entrance and our two first floor rooms and an additional stairway from the lobby to our second floor rooms. Please note that due to the historic age of the Ghost City Inn, our building is not ADA compliant.
