Bella Capri Inn & Suites - Frequently Asked Questions

No. Sorry, we require a major credit card to guarantee your room reservation. Please review the terms and cancellation policy before making your reservation.

As soon as you have completed the booking process, a confirmation page will appear in your browser session. This page shows all of your reservation details, including the booking number and your PIN code, so you can access your confirmation online. We will also send you a confirmation email with all of your booking information.

During the booking process, you can enter any special requests into the "Special Requests" box on the "Your Details" page. Once you have received your booking confirmation, you can follow up with the hotel directly to confirm that your request can be met. You can find the hotel’s contact details on the Contact Us page of our website.

Simply follow the instructions to modify or cancel your reservation found in your Reservation Confirmation Email. Alternately, you can find the link to Cancel or Modify Your Reservation in the footer of the hotel’s website. Please note, your reservation is not canceled until and unless you receive an email confirmation for the cancellation.

Yes. However, our hotel will only recognize a credit card on which the authorized payee’s name is clearly present and visible, copy of the payee’s identification and a credit card authorization form is completed and faxed back to our property. You can contact us for the Credit Card Authorization Form and for further instructions if your reservation will have a third party payee.

We consider a group to be a reservation of 6 rooms or more. For any group reservations, we request that you contact us directly or use the form that is spawned when you select 6+ rooms in the Check Availability function above.

Check-in is between 3:00 and 10:00 pm. Check-out is at 11:00 am.

If you are arriving after 10 pm, you MUST call us to let us know in advance. We can set up an after-hours key card procedure for you (subject to approval). Reminder: Quiet hours are from 10 pm - 8 pm.

Since we are a small inn, it is difficult to guarantee these requests. You may call us and request an early check-in or late check-out but we cannot guarantee anything. We recommend calling the day of and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Cash, Cashier's checks, debit and credit cards are the only valid methods of payment. Checks are not accepted forms of payment.  (Note: credit card pre-authorizations or holds may be used for incidentals.) If paying with cash, a pre-authorization on a valid credit card or a cash deposit is still required.

Our Cancellation Policy states that cancellations must be received by 6 pm, 24 hours prior to arrival to avoid a penalty charge of one night's room and tax. If your plans change, advanced cancellations are appreciated.

If you stay here often, you'll quickly find your favorite rooms, and may want the same room every time.

YES! Please call us to get full details on how to reserve a Wedding Block. Our phone number is 805-482-0777. A contract will be required.  Note: We operate on a first-come, first-serve basis, so please return all contracts in a timely manner to ensure that you get the rooms you request. A signed contract does not guarantee that all of the requested rooms will be available for your block. Existing reservations may conflict with your desired room requests, so we will do our best to accommodate you!

Wedding/Group block reservations must be reserved by calling our office during our business hours. If a Block is in place, those rooms will look "unavailable" online. Please call our office directly and provide the date of check-in, and the event name (the last name of the bride and groom) to reserve your room with a Wedding/Group Block.
