santa rita lodge Policies

As our valued guest, here are some guidelines for making your stay with us
a pleasant experience to be remembered for years to come.

Check-in is at 3:00pm/Check-out is 11:00am. NO EARLY CHECK-IN OR LATE CHECK-OUT. Please do not pre-park at your unit so that housekeeping may complete their work.
Late check-ins are arranged with the Gift Shop with instructions for after-hours check-ins. Additional fees may be charged if you check out any time after 11:00am. 

Your rate is guaranteed upon making a reservation.

A NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT is required. The amount of the deposit is 100% of the first night's stay PER UNIT. The remaining balance due will automatically be charged to the credit card on file, 14 days prior to check-in. If payment was made via PayPal, we will contact the guest for credit card information. We accept VISA, MasterCard, and Discover. 

When you pay for your reservation using a PayPal account, we require a valid credit card to be on file. We will call you within 24-hours of you making your reservation for the credit card number.

All active military, emergency services, and law enforcement officers receive a 10% discount. There are no discounts for multiple night stays, AAA, senior citizens, etc.

For all cancellations, your deposit, that is NON-REFUNDABLE will be retained by the lodge. If the reservation has been paid-in-full,
we reserve the right to keep the first night's deposit and refund the remaining night's balance back to the credit card on file that was originally used for payment. If the reservation is cancelled 30 days prior to the check in date you may request a credit voucher that is equal to the deposit that you may use for a future reservation. Credit vouchers expire three years after the date they are formed.
If the reservation was paid using Pay Pal, a business check will be issued for the remaining balance as any credit card information that is received after the initial payment, is used only for balances due or any occurring damages. 

Changes to reservations may be made up to 30 DAYS PRIOR TO CHECK-IN DATE. The first night's deposit is still NON REFUNDABLE, but, we do offer CREDIT VOUCHERS (valid for (3) three years) if the reservation needs to be canceled.

Due to safety issues and the privacy of our guests, each unit has a specific occupancy limitation. If you are reserving with us, it is required that you list all guests who will occupy the unit. OUTSIDE GUESTS ARE NOT ALLOWED. They are welcomed to reserve additional units if available. Also, items such as cribs, air mattresses, and sleeping bags are not allowed due to occupancy and safety restrictions.

As a guest of the Santa Rita Lodge, parking is FREE while you are staying with us. You will be issued a brightly colored parking pass that will sit on your dashboard for the duration of your stay. This indicates that you are our guest. Only one vehicle per parking space at each unit. For any extra vehicles please inform the gift shop for parking arrangements. Once you have checked out of your unit, you will need to move out of the unit's parking space. You may park at the gift shop once you have checked out, but, you may not park and leave your vehicle to go hike, etc.

All parking areas within Madera Canyon require an $8 per DAY PARKING PASS or a $10 per WEEK PARKING PASS that is payable at each parking location. CASH ONLY OR ONLINE PURCHASE via QR CODE. For single-day parking, payment envelopes are located at each of the canyon's trailhead parking areas. Park facilities honor the National Park's Golden Eagle Passport, Golden Age Passport, and Golden Access Passport. The Coronado National Forest Recreational ANNUAL PARKING PASS may be purchased in our Gift Shop for $40. This pass is also valid at other locations such as Mt. Lemmon, Sabino Canyon, Peña Blanca Lake, and others.
