Policies

We do everything possible to make your stay the most enjoyable. To ensure you will have a very pleasant experience at Fifteen Church St. Bed and Breakfast, we have established the following policies. Please take a few minutes to review them, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions. You can see guest comments on Tripadvisor or at: http://www.bedandbreakfast.com/south-carolina-charleston-15churchstthephillipyatessnowdenhouse.html

Booking Policies

Room rates include double occupancy and a full breakfast. Guests are invited to our 6 PM Evening Happy Hour which features beer, wine, and cheese. 

In order to confirm booking, you must send 1/2 the total payment. As we do not accept credit cards all reservations must be guaranteed with a PayPal "family and friend" payment or personal check (made out to Jack Simmons). We can also accept payments via Zelle.  To receive a deposit refund, a cancellation notice of 2 weeks must be given. (Regular PayPal incurs a 3-4% extra fee.)

Check In/Check Out

Check-In: Check-In is between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm. Arrangements for late arrivals should be made in advance with the Innkeeper.  With advanced notice, you are welcome to do an early drop-off of your bags or in-room items.

Checkout time is at 11:00 a.m. but bags may be left on the premises if you want to spend the rest of the day in Charleston.

Minimum Stays for the Inn/Premium Weekends

Most nights, especially weekends require a two night minimum stay. There are occasions where a single night visit may be available. 

During events like the Cooper River Bridge Run and all major holidays, there is usually a two night minimum stay required. Major holiday weekends include: Valentine's Day, Good Friday through Easter Sunday, the July 4th holiday, Labor Day weekend, post-Thanksgiving Weekend, and December 24th through January 2nd. Exceptions can be made if it does not block the entire weekend.

Cancellation Policy

Making a reservation at a bed and breakfast is not the same as making a hotel reservation. Due to our small size, cancellations affect us significantly. A last minute cancellation gives us little chance of re-booking a room. For this reason we request at least 2 weeks notice.

  • Guests are responsible for payment of all nights reserved regardless of their actual arrival or departure date.
  • No-shows are responsible for full payment of their entire reservation.
  • Should you cancel outside of 14 days prior to arrival, your deposit will be refunded.
  • Cancellations (including changes) made 13 days or less prior to your scheduled arrival forfeit the 50% deposit.  Exceptions may be made due to sickness, family emergencies, or weather related issues.

 

Smoking & Candle Burning

Due to the historic nature of our building, and for the safety and comfort of all of our guests, we do not allow smoking, fireworks or incense/candle burning in any of our guest rooms. 

Guests, Children and Pets at the Inn

We welcome well-behaved children under 5 years of age on an individual basis (call us for details).  We are unable to accept pets due the disruption of our pets which are confined to the owners’ quarters and common areas.
