Old Mission Inn Traverse City Bed And Breakfast



At the Old Mission Inn, every guest reservation made is important and special to us. If your travel plans change and you must cancel your reservation before 14 days prior to your arrival (this applies to all cancellations once the reservation is made), a $30.00 holding fee (per room booked) will be charged to your credit card the room was reserved with. If you cancel within 14 days of your arrival, a 30% charge of the entire booking will be charged. Cancellation fees also applies if you substract any days from your original booking. It is the fee we charge for saving that spot for you (This policy applies to gift certificate bookings also). If you cancel within 72 hours of your stay, you will be charged the entire amount of the booking. In the event of a "no show", the credit card the room was held with will be charged the full amount of the booking. You must receive an email cancellation confirmation notice to consider it cancelled. This is to deal with people who claim they called and cancelled the room. Without the confirmation, your booking will be considered a "no show" and will be charged accordingly.

We have no control over weather, personal plan changes, and/or misfortunes. These are not sufficient reasons for a "no charge". Unfortunately, when you tie up a room, it puts a hardship on us to try to rebook the room. Our cancellation list rarely works since most people move on and find other places to stay.

Reserving a Room

To reserve a room(s) we require a Visa, MasterCard or Discover to hold the room. No charges will be applied to the card unless the event of a cancellation or "no show" occurs. That way you may pay be either cash, check or charge when you arrive. A 3% discount will be given if you pay by cash or check. We are doing away with all previous discounts. this change will give all patrons a discount opportunity. This discount cannot be used in conjuction with any other discounts. Discount does not apply with split ticket payment. (Example: 1 person in a group pays cash or check and the other pays by credit card).Rates are subject to change. All rates quoted at time of booking are honored even in the event of rate changes. Note: We do not participate in the Bed and Breakfast .com gift certificate programs, however, gift certificates are available for purchase directly.
