Tiny Digs is an unconventional lodging, so please read the policies carefully to ensure an optimum experience. By booking a reservation on our website, you agree to abide by our terms and conditions outlined below. Tiny Digs reserves all rights to refuse service to any guest of the hotel who does not follow or comply with hotel policies.
PAID IN FULL AT BOOKING & DEBIT CARDS
Tiny Digs collects payment for your entire stay at the time of booking as the deposit. If you choose to use your debit card for your stay, Tiny Digs will charge the full anticipated dollar amount of your stay through your departure date. Any funds due back to your debited account for cancellation may take 4-15 business days to process. Additionally, your financial institution may have a contracted amount of time before the funds are released back to you, which can take up to 15 business days. If you have a special request regarding payment at the time of booking, please give us a call and we might be able to accommodate it. The charge to your card will appear on your statement under the name of our credit card processor "STRIPE".
SELF-CHECK-IN ANYTIME AFTER 4 PM
A few days before guests arrive we reach out via email to provide everything needed to check themselves in any time after 4 pm. Staff is not always on-site, but always available by phone. We use electronic key padlock entry to the tiny houses, so all the current code information will be provided in that email. We can also provide a luggage locker or accommodate an earlier check-in if the schedule allows - just let us know. Tiny Digs will make every effort to honor special requests.
Check-out is at 11:00 AM. If you require a later check-out, please contact us before 5:00 PM on the day prior to departure, and we will do our best to accommodate your request, depending on availability. A charge may apply.
Use tax of 6% by the State of Michigan.
All tiny house reservations require a valid credit/debit card.
Free street parking and public lots are next to the tiny house lodging and do not require a permit. It’s free, yay. Guests should park in accordance with posted guidelines.
Tiny Digs maintains a waitlist for nights that are fully booked. To be placed on the waitlist, email us at-
firstname.lastname@example.org and include the following: your phone number, arrival, and departure dates, the number in your party, and whether you’re traveling with individuals under 18. If a tiny becomes available we will contact the person at the top of the list, which may include a response time limit, after which we will contact another guest.
We require fourteen (14) days advance notice for a 96% refund (4% goes towards the credit card transaction fee). If guest cancels within seven (7) days before arrival, a 46% refund will be given. If you cancel within less than seven (7) days prior to your scheduled arrival, a refund will only be granted for the night(s) that Tiny Digs is able to rebook the tiny house, minus a $25 fee. If Tiny Digs is unable to rebook the tiny house, a refund will not be granted, and you will be charged for all of the nights of your canceled reservation. Refunds will not be granted for no-shows or failure to cancel your reservation.
Our tiny houses are unique and different from standard buildings (steep stairs for example) and are not wheelchair-friendly (ADA unit coming fall 2023). Because of these arrangements, we encourage you to carefully read the description of each tiny on our website. By making a reservation at Tiny Digs, you acknowledge and accept that our tiny houses are atypical structures, are not wheelchair accessible, and may present unique and non-standard conditions and/or risks including but not limited to:
· Narrow, steep ladders/stairs and open loft ledges
· Narrow doorways
· Low ceilings in loft areas
Sorry, we are not pet friendly at this location.
A fine of $250.00 will be billed to you if a pet is discovered in a tiny house or on the premises. This covers additional cleaning that must be done for future guests that might have allergies.
True “Service animals” are allowed at no extra cost.
If you, a member of your party staying at Tiny Digs Lakeshore or one of your guests who may visit you, or a service animal causes property damage, you will be liable for all costs including but not limited to repairs, cleaning, or replacement including all parts and labor costs. If you or your guests cause damage to another guest or their property you will be charged accordingly and you will be asked to leave the hotel without a refund.
Linens and towels are included in the tiny house, daily housekeeping service is not included. If you should need anything refreshed (coffee, towels, toilet paper) during your stay, contact a staff member on-site or call/text (888)-679-0949.
During stays longer than 10 days, Tiny Digs requires cleaning of the tiny every 5-7 days to refresh and replenish (cleaning, emptying garbage, changing sheets, towels, coffee, tea, etc.). The date and time will be prearranged with you in advance. During cleaning, if we observe any damages we reserve the right to terminate your stay.
SMOKING OR VAPING
Smoking of any kind or vaping is prohibited in all of the tiny houses as well as on the grounds. If you choose to smoke, you’ll need to go at least 25’ beyond the sidewalks around the property. This ensures that other guests can have a smoke-free environment, especially those who opt to leave their windows open. Please dispose of your cigarette butts in the designated receptacles and not inside the tiny houses. A $250 fee will be applied for smoking or vaping, of any kind on-site.
10 pm - 8 am The City of Muskegon requires that noise be significantly reduced after 10 pm. We also want to be courteous to our other guests and our neighbors so people can sleep.
Due to fire hazard, burning candles are not permitted inside the tiny houses. If the use of candles is discovered a fine of $250 will be applied to your credit card.
Requests can be made for battery-operated candles for those special occasions.
Guests must be 19 years or older to check in without a parent or legal guardian.
If you choose to take advantage of any promotions offered through Tiny Digs, please follow all restrictions associated with each offer. Management reserves the right to change or cancel promotions but will honor those booked within the promotional period.
NO IN-ROOM PARTY POLICY
Unless your group has reserved the entire hotel, Tiny Digs enforces a NO IN-ROOM PARTY POLICY. This ensures we can protect the hotel and our guests at all times. In the event of a disturbance, a warning will be given, however, if this warning is not honored and a second complaint is received, the guest will forfeit all fees and must leave the hotel immediately.
