Guest Policies

Debit and Credit Card Policy

Debit and Credit cards will be authorized at check-in for the amount of your stay, plus an additional $25 to cover any incidentals that may occur. The authorization will hold the funds until check out, at which time the amount actually incurred during the stay will be charged. Authorized amounts may take up to 30 days after departure to be released by your bank or financial institution. Please note that the hotel will not be responsible for any resulting fees or charges.Cancellation Policy

Pet Policy

Our Stoney Creek and Grand Lodge properties are pleased to offer pet friendly accommodations. We accept dogs only and they must weigh less than 50 pounds and there is a limit of two dogs per room. Pets, with the exception of those associated with ADA, are not allowed in any food and beverage areas or recreational areas of our properties. Dogs must be on a leash when traveling to and from the outdoors and kenneled when left unattended in rooms. Owners must sign a policy agreement at check in and there is a nightly per pet fee. Pet owners will be fully responsible for any injuries to hotel employees or other hotel guests as well as repair or replacement of any stained or damaged items your pet may cause. Stoney Creek reserves the right to charge the credit card on file for your room for any excessive cleaning or damages. Failure to disclose a pet will result in a minimum $100 charge.

(Note: Historic Park Inn does not allow pets due to the historic nature of the property.)

Smoking Policy

We are proud to provide a smoke-free environment in the public areas of each Stoney Creek location! Our rooms are also 100% smoke–free.

Pool Policy

While many of our properties offer and indoor or indoor/outdoor pool, please note that we do not have a lifeguard on duty. Our Waukon location and the Historic Park Inn do not have a pool on site. All guests swim at their own risk. Below are a few policies observed by our staff for the safety of our guests:

  • No food or beverages are allowed in the pool area.
  • Our pool area is open from 6:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. however, we offer an adult only swim from 10:00-11:00 p.m.
  • Children under age 14 are not allowed in the whirlpool for their own safety and in compliance with any of our state regulations.
  • Our hotels follow swimming pool safety guidelines set forth by the National Lightning Safety Institute. Both indoor and outdoor pools are affected by this guideline. Therefore, any lightning present in the general vicinity of our pools requires us to vacate the pool area, inside and out. Pool activities will be suspended until fifteen or thirty minutes after the last thunder is heard (based on state regulations).

Excessive Cleaning/Damages Policy

An additional fee will be charged for guest rooms that require excessive cleaning or to repair damages to the room.
