Check in: 4:00 - 6:00  We are happy to accommodate early or late check-ins when possible- since we are volunteer-powered, please give us as much notice as possible so we can be sure an innkeeper is available.
Once you check in, you'll receive the entrance door code so there's never a need to worry about getting locked out.

Check out is 11 am

Payment - We accept cash and checks but prefer not to take credit cards. If you must use one, we pass along the 3% surcharge to you. There’s an ATM just 1 block away at the WSECU on Union and Adams.


Deposits and Cancellations 

  • No deposit is needed for reservations totaling less than $400. Your spoken or written intention to show up is all that we require. 
    • For payments totaling more than $400, we expect half in advance. If you must cancel, we will refund your entire deposit up until 10 days before your visit.
    • After 10 days, you will get all but $20 back for processing fees. If you need to cancel please give as much notice as possible. Group reservations should include a negotiated deposit as well.
Animal-Friendly - By law, we must accept service animals and we sometimes allow pets to share our accommodations, including an old-lady feline who currently lives in the basement but never enters the main house. It depends on the other guests' needs. So check with us in advance. $5 added for extra cleanup.


House Rules

Guests can stay up to two weeks. 

Kitchen Use - The kitchen is available for lunch use between 11am to 1pm. Kitchen access for dinner is 5pm to 9pm. Everyone appreciates it when you immediately clean up after yourself in the kitchen.

Bathroom Sharing - Your time in the bathroom should be as enjoyable as the rest of your visit. Please take maximum enjoyment with minimal time. We provide mirrors and hair dryers in all the rooms where additional primping can take place. Fresh towels are in the shelves near the bathroom, used towels go into hampers after use. Because staff is unable to clean the bathroom between each use, please leave the bathroom better than you found it each time.

The general atmosphere around here at Ground Inn is friendly and cooperative. Everyone wants you to have a fun, safe time during your visit. To cultivate this atmosphere, we've provided some clear guidelines which allows for maximum relaxation and minimum hassle. Children are very welcome, but please assist them in abiding by these guidelines ~ especially with respect to noise. 


Be Respectful - respect yourself, respect bunkmates and staff, respect nature, respect any animals you might meet, too. (Service animals are welcome, but no pets please.) Out of respect for people with chemical sensitivities, we strongly encourage a scent-free environment as a courtesy for all. Quiet time after 10pm.

Be Green - please turn off water and electricity when not needed. Use the recycle and compost bins. Make as little garbage as possible. 

Be Safe - be mindful of your words and actions ~ how they affect the safety (and feelings of safety) of those around you. No threatening words or actions will be tolerated. If you ever feel threatened or uncomfortable in any way during your stay here, let a staff person know. 

Be Tidy - please use the drawers and closets provided for you to store your things. Leave the space better than you found it each time.
Guests are responsible for securing their personal items. Personal items left outside of your bunk area will be put away by staff. 


Be Cool - we should never see any illegal drugs or alcohol abuse at Ground Inn. Marijuana smoking is permitted, according to Washington State law, but take it outside. Tobacco smoking is also permitted outside only.  If you smoke or drink while outside, do so with great subtlety and respect for those around you.
