Suite Reservations

A $20 deposit is required to secure your reservation and will be charged to the Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express card provided. If booking your reservation less than 48 hours before your arrival, the entire reservation amount will be charged to your credit card. The remainder of your balance is due at check-in and can be paid with credit card or cash. Your reservation is not confirmed until your deposit has been successfully processed. An automatic confirmation will be sent by our reservation system to the email you provide.

Our rooms are set up to accommodate two guests per room. Children are welcome but must be accompanied by a single family member and count as a guest in the room. Children under the age of 12 can be accommodated on an airbed for an additional $15 per night. Guests age 13 and up can be accommodated on an airbed for an additional $30 per night. A maximum of 4 persons allowed per room. All guest names must be listed on the reservation for your safety in the event of an emergency. Although we love animals, we cannot accommodate pets.

Check-In & Check-Out

Check-ins are scheduled from 2pm to 6pm.

We will e-mail, text or call you the day of your arrival to confirm your arrival time. If you are not sure of your arrival time or will be arriving later than 6pm, self check-in is available. It is important to know to call approximately 15-20 minutes before arrival to ensure someone is on-site and available to get you checked in when you arrive. Early check-ins may be accommodated based on availability but we are always happy to store baggage if you arrive before your room is ready. Please call to make these arrangements in advance.

Check-out is any time before 11am. A late check-out must be arranged in advance with the innkeeper to assure there is ample time to prepare the room for guests arriving later that day.

Cancellation Policy

At Grand Magnolia Ballroom & Suites, we understand that life sometimes throws you a curveball and plans unexpectedly change. We make many preparations including staffing, breakfast purchases, and other details, based on upcoming reservations. Cancellations affect us greatly, therefore we ask you to agree to the following cancellation policy at the time of booking.

If your plans change after your reservation is confirmed, cancellation notice is required 48 hours in advance of your arrival date. With this advance notice, we will refund your credit card deposit minus a $20 cancellation fee, per room reserved. The $20 cancellation fee also applies to changes to your arrival/departure date that result in a shorter stay.

Reservations cancelled less than 48 hours prior to your arrival date will be charged in full, unless your room(s) are re-booked by another party. We will make every effort to re-book your room(s) and will refund any room(s) we are able to re-book minus a $20 cancellation fee per room reserved.

Any reservation made on a third-party site must be canceled through that third-party website.

The Grand Magnolia Ballroom & Suites cannot accept responsibility of inclement weather, changes in travel plans, person sickness or injury, family emergencies, etc.

We highly encourage guests to consider purchasing outside trip insurance from a company such as AAA in the event an emergency arises that impedes your travel plans. They can be contacted at 1-877-267-5011. All canceled reservations, regardless of notice, will be charged a $20 minimum cancellation fee.

No refunds are provided for late arrivals, early departures, or no-shows.
Cancellations MUST be confirmed by phone, not via email.
