Please note

When choosing to use a debit card as a deposit or form of payment when checking into the hotel it is important to understand how debit cards and their transactions are handled by banks.

An additional $20.00 per day is also put on hold for incidentals. These funds are not withdrawn from the account, but are made unavailable until the Hotel indicates the funds are no longer needed. At this time it may take up to fifteen days for the bank to make these funds available again.
