Hotel Policies

While we love furry friends, YOWIE is not a pet friendly hotel.

YOWIE is a non-smoking hotel. Therefore, smoking is not allowed in any private suites, public areas or cafe. A smoking cleaning fee of $300 will be assessed in the event smoking does occur in the guest rooms.

50% of prepayments are refundable when canceled 7 days before arrival or earlier. 0% refundable if canceled after. No exceptions will be made for weather, and there are no refunds for shortened stays or early departures. Because of our size, cancellations affect us significantly. We hope you can understand our strict policy.

We ask that all guests be respectful of our quiet hours from 10:00pm – 7:00am.  Please be considerate of other guests in suites and our neighbors. Any complaint made by another guest or a neighbor may result in immediate eviction and a fine of $500 if the problem persists.


Most of our suites are equipped with small kitchens and cookware by Caraway Home to make a lite bite or heat up your leftovers from your night out!

YOWIE has limited luggage storage which is on a first come first serve basis. Please reach out prior to your arrival if you would like to store your belongings.

For hotel room blocks, please contact
