Check-in/Check-out times

Standard check-in time is between 3pm until 7pm after which time please contact the Innkeeper for instructions regarding our late check-in procedure. Your guest room could be available earlier should it not have been occupied the night before. If this is not the case though, we can store your bags while you relax in our living room or gardens or begin your exploration of Santa Barbara. 

Standard check-out time is at 11am after which we will be happy to store your bags until your departure home.

Children & Infants

Children and infants are welcome in our Cottages and Coach House.  There will be an additional charge of $30.00 for children over 5 years of age.

Smoking, Candles & Incense

The Cheshire Cat Inn is a nonsmoking establishment inside and on our patio however smoking is permitted in our garden area. Due to our insurance regulation and for the safety of all guests as well as to prevent odors from building up in guestrooms, we regret that we cannot permit guests to burn flame candles or incense of any kind.

Deposit & Cancellations

A deposit of one night’s accommodation including tax is required for all reservations. All balances are due at time of check-out. If you need to cancel your booking, there will be a full refund less a cancellation fee of $30.00 as long as cancellation occurs outside 7 days. Within 7 days, the one night deposit will be nonrefundable unless the room is resold.
