Reserving Your Room
You have done quite a bit of home work by the time you arrive at this point in your search for a Paso Robles bed and breakfast lodging. You probably also concluded that Seven Quails is a bit different in the way they do business: no credit cards, no national booking agents, no on-line booking software, just a Google calendar. Our rationale for this is to eliminate booking commissions and credit card expenses so we can maintain reasonable rates.
You may also notice our disdain for single evening bookings. We view Seven Quails as a destination bed and breakfast, a place our guests come to relax for a few days, not arrive late one afternoon then rush off to their next destination early the next morning. So we encourage those who are trying to cram the most into a week on the Central Coast of California to consider the quality of their visits, not the sheer number of places visited. In less subtle language: there is a two evening minimum booking for all rooms.
Additionally, due to our location in a destination resort area, Paso Wine Country, the vast majority of our guests travel here from the metro Los Angeles or San Francisco areas or even more distant places. They desire to book two evenings for their stays because of the travel distances involved. Single evening bookings limit our ability to accommodate their needs which is our primary market segment. It is for these reasons that we do not accept single evening reservations on weekdays or weekends.
Our final words concern the Google Calendar: It is not hyper-linked to our reservation system but needs manual entries to reflect current status. We try diligently to insure that it is up to date but sometimes there is slight time lag between a booking and a calendar posting. If your booking is critical then by all means call us or so indicate on your reservation request.

A few words about how we do business: We treat our guests as we would expect to be treated. Therefore, in order to keep our rates low we don't we don’t accept credit cards but a personal check drawn on a U.S. Bank or traveler's checks are just fine. You deposit is due a maximum of seven business days after you receive an email confirmation of your reservation. We require a 50% deposit of the total room charges sans tax to hold your room.
If you must cancel for any reason a full refund is issued for cancellations received at least three weeks in advance of reserved dates. If you must cancel less than three weeks in advance a full refund is issued if we are able to fill the rooms left vacant by your cancellation. If we are not able to do so we issue you a credit for one half (50%) of your deposit against a future stay at Seven Quails. We do not charge a service fee for any cancellations or re-bookings.
