Connecting Rooms

Want your friends next door? We offer some connecting rooms between our Deluxe Suites and Luxury Kings and Double Queen rooms. Give us a call at 919.956.6700 or email to book. Subject to availability.

Credit Card Policy

Got plastic? We require a major credit card to be presented at check-in time. The card must belong to the guest checking in to the room (and match their photo ID.)  Credit cards will be authorized for the full amount of room and tax, PLUS $100 per day for incidentals. Since most banks don’t release authorizations for 7 to 10 days after check-out time, we don’t recommend using a debit card at check-in. And, sorry Charlie, unfortunately we can’t accept cash as a form of deposit. Credit cards, debit cards and cash are all welcome forms of payment at check-out.

Picking Up a Tab

Footing the bill? How generous! To cover another party’s room charges and/or incidentals, please complete our credit card authorization form and return within 72 hours of the scheduled arrival.  Please fax to 919.956.6701.
