Frequently Asked Questions

We are delighted that you may be joining us at the Windrush Inn. We hope the following Frequently Asked Questions may assist you on your visit to our lovely Moonstone Beach. Click to expose the answer.

Check-in time is 3:00 pm. Windrush Inn features electronic check in. A code will be sent to your email 24-hours prior to check-in. This code will provide access to your room beginning at 3:00 pm on your check-in date and expire at 11:00 am on your check- out date. Check-out time is 11:00 am. Early Check-in or late Check-out are impossible to determine in advance because we rarely know in advance when another guest's departure or arrival times may be, plus the additional time necessary required for our immaculate housekeeping.
We will require a valid Credit Card to reserve your room. You may choose to change to an alternate Credit Card or pay by Cash upon arrival. In order to avoid a Credit Card "Hold" that could restrict the resources of your Card while you may be traveling, we will process your complete reservations stay charges upon arrival. Ancillary items or purchases will be processed separately upon checkout. We are pleased to accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
The standard room rate is based upon double occupancy. There is an additional $15 charge for each adult over the standard two persons per room (no additional charge for children or youth under 18). There is a 12% occupancy tax required by San Luis Obispo County that is not reflected in your room rate. This will be reflected in your confirmation letter or email. There are no additional "resort fees" or parking fees. We just don't think that's fair. Therefore, Parking and Wireless Internet are all FREE!
Should your travel plans change, please call us to cancel or reschedule your reservation as soon as possible. A $50 cancellation fee may apply. In the unlikely event that you must cancel or shorten your stay within five (5) days* of your arrival date, (*30 days on holiday weeks), please understand that you may be responsible for your entire reservation. If we successfully resell your room(s), we will happily apply a full or partial credit or refund to you. We are not in business to charge guests for rooms they cannot use, but in many instances we have turned other guests away in favor of your advanced reservation. The sooner you can let us know of any cancellations or revisions to your reservation; the more likely we are to resell the room. So, please inform us as soon as you become aware of any necessary changes and we promise to do our best!
Windrush Inn is "Pet Friendly". While we love pets, we understand that some guests have allergies or other reasons not to stay in a room that may have been visited by a furry family member, regardless of the sanitation efforts we use to rehabilitate a room after a pet stay. That is why we require advance notice of a pet stay, and also why we require a $40 fee per pet room stay(not per day); additional effort and resources are necessary to insure the room is clean and allergen free for the next guest. Please note that the Windrush Inn does not provide a fenced outdoor area for pets. Here is a link to our pet policy where you will also find resources for pet sitting, pet friendly restaurants, wineries and beaches.
Because of the variety of times and options associated with visits to Hearst Castle, Winery Tours, Kayaking, Horseback Riding, and so many other events we do not wish to lock you into a time or date that could compromise your fluctuating travel schedule. We are pleased to recommend a wide variety of activities, attractions and events, but recommend you utilize the variety of links provided on the site to ensure the tickets or commitments made are consistent with your availability, rather than our whim. Restaurant reservations are recommended, particularly on weekends, summer months and holidays, however we are unable to make reservations on your behalf.
Windrush Inn Gift Certificates are a great way to say Thank You or Congratulations! Certificates are available in any denomination, room package or special and are customized with your personal message. Anniversary ♦ Honeymoon ♦ Birthday ♦ Retirement or just because! A Gift Certificate stay at the Windrush Inn makes any occasion special and will always be remembered.
The Windrush Inn is family friendly. Exploring the tide pools, attractions and events are a great way for a family to grow closer while visiting our charming Village. However, guest rooms with a King Bed are best suited for no more than two persons although we do provide a Pac-N-Play for infants. The Windrush House sleeps up to eight people in 3 king beds plus a king sized blow-up mattress and is ideal for families or friend groups. The Windrush House comes equipped with a Pack 'N Play. We do not provide Roll-Away beds.
