UPDATE: 12/03/2020 STAY AT HOME ORDER
While we at Strawberry Creek Inn B&B fully support and affirm the spirit and intent of the Governor’s Stay At Home order issued 12/3, much confusion has resulted from the wording and labeling used.


After considerable and careful review with legal, industry, and trade association experts, and under guidance from the California Hotel & Lodging Association in cooperation with the Governor’s office, our understanding of the order as it applies to hotels/inns is as follows:

    1) Out of state travelers are not able to be housed in any hotel/inn or lodging in California. {#3}
    2) Gatherings with other households is prohibited; basically no meeting with or gathering with anyone outside your own household (#2.a}
    3) “Nothing in this Order prevents any number of persons from the same household from leaving their residence, lodging, or temporary accommodation, as long as they do not engage in any interaction with (or otherwise gather with) any number of persons from any other household” {#2.h}
    4) Outdoor recreation activities are, at least implicitly, encouraged for mental health {#2.g, et al}
    5) Social distancing and facial coverings are still mandated.

                {references of # to the State Order, linked here and below}

As always, we continue to exceed state, federal, and industry cleanliness and distancing standards including mandatory facial coverings, rigid sanitization and other measures… { by the way, as a matter of fact, our inn is ideal in that there is more than enough ample space between rooms/cabins and a great deal of outdoor space (acres) to social distance. Only 10 rooms cabins ensures optimal distancing}

 
AS THE STATE ORDER DOES NOT IMPACT TRAVELERS FROM WITHIN CALIFORNIA IN ANY WAY AT THIS TIME, ALL EXISTING LOCAL RESERVATION REMAIN VALID AS SCHEDULED. Normal Operations have resumed (with enhanced Clean+Safe procedures) June 12th, 2020, and continue in operation on December 3rd, 2020 except for Out-Of-State visitors which are prohibited for three weeks.


AS THE ORDER DOES NOT IMPACT TRAVELERS FROM WITHIN CALIFORNIA IN ANY WAY AT THIS TIME, NO EXCEPTIONS ARE BEING MADE AND WE REMAIN READY AND ABLE TO ACCEPT ALL EXISTING LOCAL RESERVATION AS SCHEDULED.

The State of California Dept. of Health and the Governor's office announced anticipated full leisure travel to resume on or before Friday 6/12, and have resumed WEEKEND operations FOR ALL GUESTS.


Additionally, Visit California and the California Hotel & Lodging Association issued bulletins state-wide. Riverside County has also certified Stage 3 readiness and had rescinded / removed its' own local orders.

Out of an abundance of caution and for your safety, please note the new check in and other Safe+Clean procedures below; we intend to keep these in place at least 30-60 days after reaching full Stage 4 (CA Resilience Roadmap) the "All Clear" signal for the state.

We have implemented curb-side check in options your vehicle and will use personal protective devices (gloves, face masks) while performing guest check in. Masks are also highly suggested for all guests. Also, once checked in, no housekeeping will enter your room during your stay and any services will be performed outside (ie leaving your coffee, etc at your door).

EXPIRED | Book With Confidence Policy | EXPIRED


  • For new bookings made 3/20 to 6/30/2020 for travel until 12/15/2020
  • "Advance Purchase" rates are not covered by the Book With Confidence policy as these rates are significantly discounted in exchange for the booker/buyer taking the risk if they cannot travel for any reasons.
  • REGARDLESS OF RATE OR TERMS, ALL reservations (except Advance Purchase) booked directly ON OUR OFFICIAL WEBSITE** and not through third parties may cancel up to noon 72 hours prior (3 days) to check in date and will incur a $25 fee but no other penalties or fees. All other Advance Payments made shall be refunded to the original form of payment (card). Email followed up by phone call is the best way to document your cancelation request.
  • For cancelations less than 72 hours from noon on check in day, the full penalty amount is collected per the reservation terms, without a fee (ie no $25/$75 or $100 fee), and an a Future Stay Credit Voucher (FSCV) will be issued in the guest's name in the full amount of the penalty.
  • Third party bookings through partners and online travel agencies are bound by those terms; we will review waivers from those bookings on a case by case basis, but do not have a Book with Confidence Policy Override for non-direct booked, third party, reservations and recommend guests book direct to guarantee Book With Confidence benefits.

EXPIRED | Cancellation Penalty Waivers | EXPIRED

Cancelation Penalty Waivers for bookings made on or before 3/19/19

  • Must have a booking made on or before 3/19, for travel between 3/11 and 4/30 (this date may get extended; we recommend guests do not cancel reservations after this date until the policy is/if amended).
  • For cancelations made with enough time before the cutoff, the reservation terms and policies apply, and applicable refund would have been processed (less fee).
  • Any modifications (date) or cancelation for any reason after the applicable cutoff will incur the applicable cancelation penalty, with all charges per the terms and conditions (which normally does not include a cancel/modification fee). A Future Stay Credit Voucher (FSCV) will be issued for the Penalty amount.
  • This Waiver applies to all bookings including Third Party or Online Travel Agency (Expedia, Booking, Hotels.com) but excludes Deal Vouchers or getaways (ie Groupon), if any as they are handled directly by Groupon.

EXPIRED | Future Stay Credit Voucher (FSCV) | EXPIRED

FSCV-C19A Rules and Conditions

  • Must book by 6/30 (date was extended from original 5/15) for travel to 12/15/2020 at prevailing rates; bookings of FSCVs are subject to all terms and conditions AND WAIVERS in effect, however no cash will be refunded for the FSCV portion of a future booking utilizing a waiver, only for the cash (credit card) portion paid in addition, if any; cash payments made, if any will subject to the then-in-effect waiver(s), if any.
  • NO FSCV will ever be issued for a Cancelation Fee (ie $25, $75 or $100), only for the actual Advance Payment or modification/cancelation amount charged, if any. This is because generally when a fee is paid (versus a penalty) there is no penalty incurred. So for example, if a guest made a reservation, that they then modified the date (and paid a $75 fee to modify but without penalty) then later that same reservation is cancelled and would normally then incur a fee, but qualifies for an FSCV, only the portion paid for as a modification or cancelation Penalty, EXCLUDING the cancel/modification fee, will be issued as an FSCV. The FSCV will typically be for the actual amount of the nightly rate and fees/taxes/add-ons for the stay.
  • NO FSCV will ever be issued for an 'Advance Payment' type rate or reservation, as these rates are significantly discounted in exchange for the booker/buyer taking the risk if they cannot travel for any reasons.
  • NO FSCV will ever be issued for a 'No Show' reservation where the guest fails to cancel their reservation before 5pm on their scheduled Check In date.
  • Not valid on any bookings made with a third party, or online travel agency; FSCV's must be used on directly booked reservations, even if they were issued as triggered by a courtesy or waiver on a third-party reservation.
  • Not valid for our published Holiday and Event dates, however they can be used towards nights in a reservation that spans over holidays (for example, arriving before or after the holiday for a longer stay, you can apply the FSCV towards nights not posted as holidays/events on our website).
  • FSCVs are not combinable, nontransferable, and have no cash value whatsoever as they are a special exception issued as a guest / customer service concession under extreme conditions even though the inn is not obligated to do so.
  • We reserve the right to modify, change, terminate, or interpret the rules and value of the FSCV at any time and without notice.
  • Guests with an existing dispute or who initiate a dispute with any credit / debit card issuer are not eligible for courtesy waivers or FSCVs and the usual process for disputes will be followed and defended for the full amount, with no possibility of a credit or refund.
