Reservation Policy

These days schedules change fast and holding rooms for guests and leaving them empty would dictate a rate increase. To minimize lost revenues (and avoid rate increases), we encourage our guests to be a bit more sure of their plans prior to booking.

A credit card will guarantee your reservation at Lafayette Inn. The full amount is due upon check-in. To cancel or re-schedule your reservation there is a $25 administrative fee, and we would need to hear from you no later than 3 days prior to your scheduled arrival date. Last-minute cancellations (within 3 days of booking), regardless of the reason, will result in a charge to your credit card of the full amount or three nights, whichever is less.

We accept checks, cash and all major credit cards.

The Lafayette Inn is a smoke-free environment. Smoking is permitted outdoors only. Candles or any live flames are not permitted (100+ year old building… and it needs to be protected!).

Rates quoted are for double occupancy. A third and fourth person can be accommodated in some rooms for $20 per night per person over five years of age. No rooms can accommodate more than four persons regardless of age.

Our guests enjoy a quiet environment! After 9 p.m., we keep things low key. There are neighboring establishments that can accommodate our more lively and loud groups in the later evening hours. A long, long time ago, this historic building was a fraternity house. Those days are OVER. 🙂

You are welcome to arrive between the hours of 3PM to 9PM. If you find that you’ll be running late, please give us a call at 610.253.4500 so that we can arrange a late check-in for you.


Our Pet-Friendly Lodging Policies:

We welcome dogs and cats traveling with their well-behaved owners in rooms 1, 2, and 3. Bowls, mat, towel, treats, and clean-up bags are provided. There is a $40 per night additional charge. Pets cannot be left alone in the room.
