Policies, Terms, and Conditions:
The Galloway House Inn is not a bed and breakfast, it is an inn and we don’t serve breakfast.
Standard Check-In Times: By appointment between 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM and although we live on the 2nd floor of the main house, we walk our dogs and run errands. Arrivals between 7:00 PM and midnight please call us. In deference to other guests, we don’t allow arrivals after midnight.
Early Check-In Times: Please call us the day prior to your arrival and we will do all we can to accommodate your request.
Housekeeping: We don’t provide daily housekeeping but on request, our housekeeper will re-fresh your apartment for stays of 4 days or longer.
Common Areas: Limited to the front porch and gardens only, there is no interior common area.
Parties & Events: Not allowed unless we have agreed to it and confirmed via email prior to arrival.
Smoking / Vaping: Not allowed by local Savannah ordinance anywhere on the property, this includes porches, gardens, and parking areas. Cigarette butts must be completely extinguished and then placed in the trash bins in the lane behind the house.
Persons Not Included on the Original Reservation: The 1st person will be charged at the rate of $60 for every night of the entire reservation. Any additional people not included on the original reservation will have to vacate the property immediately. This is our home and we really don’t appreciate people sneaking around, so it’s best, to be honest, and things will be better for everyone.
EPA Guidance: In accordance with the guidelines issued by the EPA thermostats are set to 72 degrees cooling and 68 degrees heating. The use of the ceiling fans are unrestricted.
Children: Under 14 are not allowed on the property. Infants under 12 months are allowed. This 125-year-old house is not the safest place for children. Nothing is childproof, there are steep stairs, gas stoves, a 3-story back porch, and 2nd floor and 3rd-floor balconies. If you arrive with children, out of an abundance of caution for the safety of your child, we will not allow you to stay, with no exceptions, no excuses, and no refunds.
Payment: A deposit of 50% of your total reservation is collected at the time your reservation is made and the balance is charged the day of check-in. We only accept MasterCard and VISA credit cards. Charges cannot be split over multiple credit cards. The Galloway House reserves the right to cancel any reservation within the first 24 hours after the reservation is made.
Deliveries: We will only accept the delivery of fresh flowers from local florists. We cannot accept deliveries of medical supplies or medication.
Security: Video surveillance cameras monitor and record motion detected in the exterior areas of the property, this includes porches, gardens, and parking areas.
Dog Policy: Dogs are the only animal we allow. Tea-cup to giant, well-behaved dogs of all sizes and breeds are welcome. Maximum of two dogs allowed per suite.
Service Dogs: In recent years countless dog owners have begun claiming their pet is a “service animal” because the American’s With Disabilities Act makes it illegal for hotels or inns to charge a cleaning fee. Although, there is an exemption, section 36.104 Definitions, Place of Public Accommodation (1), states “Place of lodging, except for an establishment located within a facility that contains not more than five rooms for rent or hire and that actually is occupied by the proprietor of the establishment as the residence of the proprietor. It’s not legal for hotels and inns to charge a cleaning fee for service animals.” The Galloway House Inn is owner-occupied and has less than 4 guest suites.
ADA Title III Regulations
Dog Fees: $75 pet cleaning fee for one or two dogs for the entire stay and “service dogs” are not exempt from this fee. If the dog is not on the reservation and we’re not advised via email prior to your arrival, there will be a $100 cleaning fee, so please, just be honest.
1. Dogs must always & forever be on a leash if they are not inside your suite.
2. Dogs are never to be allowed on the beds or furniture, but if you and your pooch like to cuddle on the sofa, we have plenty of old sheets!
3. You must keep your dog from doing its ‘business’ in the garden. When a dog marks a spot, others will often do the same and pretty soon the garden will be just a memory.
4. Please keep your cell phone with you and keep it turned on whenever you leave your dog unattended in your suite. For the sake of other guests, if your dog is barking for an extended period of time, we will call you so you can come back to the house.
5. You must pick up after your dog anywhere and everywhere in Savannah.
6. The use of “wee-wee’ pads inside any suite is not allowed.
Terms: Guests agree to indemnify and save individual owners, Keith K. Galloway, and his employees, free and harmless for any liabilities or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from, related to, or in any connection with the rental of the premises, including but not limited to, any claim or liability of personal injury or damage or loss of property which is incurred or sustained by a guest or the guests of a guest. Keith Galloway reserves the right to refuse or discontinue tenancy if, in his sole opinion, any person displays inappropriate behavior. Guests will be responsible for any damages or theft. A valid credit card must be on file for every reservation. Policies are subject to change without notice. Reservations may not be re-sold. Only registered guests are allowed to spend the night.
