Europa Suites has been 100% Smoke-Free since its beginning. For safety and to assure that our facility is not exposed to items or actions that create an odor which is unhealthy and objectionable to our guests and staff, and that is difficult to remove from the air, carpet, walls, and furniture we do not permit smoking tobacco, marihuana, illegal drugs, cartridges containing the liquid of nicotine, hookahs, incense, cooking, cigars, candle burning, the use or diffusing of patchouli oil or other strong-smelling plant-based essential oils or synthetic products in our facility. Failure to comply with the above generates an economic sanction equivalent to 100USD.
Guests are encouraged to notify Front Desk staff immediately if they smell cigarette, marihuana, or other objectionable odors. This policy is not intended to stop people from smoking, but to regulate where they smoke and how it affects others. Marihuana is always prohibited.
NO-COOKING, COOKING APPLIANCES, COMBUSTIBLES, OR FIREWORKS:
The safety of our guests, staff, and this facility is extremely important to us. Except for the microwave and refrigerator units that our place provides, preparation of food in guest rooms by any type of cooking appliances is prohibited, only on our Penthouse, that has its own cooking area. A minimum fee of $300.00 will be charged for cooking in a room, including, but not limited to coffee makers, hot plates, toaster ovens, water heaters, rice cookers, combustible, open flame, barbecue grill, burners, heating appliance, or any other item intended for cooking.

All rooms have a microwave and refrigerator unit. We ask that you refrain from microwaving any pungent food as the odor is difficult to remove from fabric, a cleaning fee may be assessed. Most commercially prepared food intended for the microwave has not previously caused a problem, so we suggest that option. Microwaving your fresh caught trout will be an issue.
10:00 p.m. to 9 a.m. on weekdays, we are in a very loud site and on the weekends, we do not have a quiet hour due to the noise from outside.

Room occupancy requirements are based on fire code/fire safety restrictions.

Rooms are cleaned and inspected daily, and a detailed log is maintained on each room and linen. Rooms are rented to guests in appropriate condition without any prohibited odor. Housekeeping and Front Desk staff are trained and skilled in identifying the odors from prohibited items.
