Is the cleaning fee optional?
No, sorry. We pride ourselves on the consistency of professionally cleaned properties upon your arrival. We have no way to ensure a unit is to our standards if the previous guest cleans the unit. Our cleaning staff is required to meet very strict standards for each and every checkout. This is for the benefit of all of our guests and staff.

When do I need to pay for my reservation?
We require that the full amount will be required at time of booking.

Reservation Questions

Can I Request A Certain Unit Or Floor?
You can submit a request for a certain unit or floor, but unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee you a specific unit until one week before your arrival.

Do You Allow Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties?
Unfortunately, since our rentals are located in residential communities, we do not allow bachelor/bachelorette parties or parties of any kind in our rentals.

What Is The Cancellation Policy?
At the time of booking, 100% of total rental charges are made. The Guest has 24 hours from making the reservation to cancel the booking for a full refund. After 24 hours, and at least 30 days before the start of the stay 50% becomes non-refundable. Within 30 days of check in all guest payments are non-refundable. If we are able to re-rent the property, we will reimburse the Guest for what we were able to re-book the unit for -15% for administrative fees. Minnestay highly recommends purchasing Travel Insurance through us at the time of booking to avoid potential travel complications.

Check-In Questions

Do You Allow Early Check-ins?
An early check-in can only be approved within 24 hours prior to arrival. This is dependent on whether or not the cleaning staff has time to fully clean the home before your arrival. If guests are checking out the same day that your reservation begins, an early check-in is not allowed as it will not allow the housekeeper enough time to fully prepare the home for you. Call or email us 24 hours prior to arrival to see if early check-in is available.

Do You Allow Late Check-outs?
A late check-out can only be approved on the day of departure. They are dependent on whether or not the cleaning staff has time to fully clean the home before the next guest’s arrival. If guests are checking in on the same day that your reservation ends, a late check-out is not allowed as it will not allow the housekeeper enough time to fully prepare the property for the next guest. Call or email us 24 hours prior to departure day to see if a late check-out is available.

How Do I Obtain The Keys?
3 days prior to arrival, we will email you your Arrival and Departure Instructions. We recommend that you use “GuestPass”. The information will be entered into “GuestPass” for you to see. It has all the check-in information, codes, passwords, etc you will need to get into the building and your rental. You can also easily share it with all of your guests!

What Do I Need To Do Before Check-out?
Check-out is at 11am local time. All we ask is that you start a load of dishes in the dishwasher prior to departure. Be sure to follow the check-out instructions and what to do with keys and parking passes. A $125 per hour fee will be assessed for failing to vacate the unit by the agreed upon check-out time.

What If I’m Not Arriving Until After 4pm?
That’s perfectly fine! Your unit will not be ready until 4pm but since we have a self-catered check-in system, you can easily check in at any time that works for you after 4pm.
