General Policies

Invisible Service: Ruston Lofts provides an Invisible Service experience to our guests. We work behind the scenes to give our guests a more private and independent stay. Our hands-off approach to hospitality means we do not have a front desk or a visible staff on site. However, a property manager is simply a text, email, or phone call away should you need anything.

Check-in and Check-out Times: Check-in is 4pm and Check-out is 11am.

Occupancy: A maximum of two adult overnight guests per suite. A maximum of two daytime visitors (non-registered guests) per suite is allowed onto the property. An occupancy fee will be charged if violated.

Quiet Hours: 10:00 PM to 7:00 AM

Overcrowding/Noise/Parties: Overcrowding, violating quiet hours, and disruptive parties including any action by a guest deemed inappropriate are not allowed. Violation of these policies will result in immediate eviction from property without refund.

No Smoking: Ruston Lofts is a 100% non-smoking building. Any evidence of smoking on the property will result in a $500 fee. For the safety and protection of this property's historic building, the use of candles and incense is prohibited.

Pets: We do not allow pets on the property. Evidence of pets will result in eviction without a refund, a violation fee, plus the cost of any damaged property.

Commercial Filming & Photography: We do not allow commercial filming or photography in the rooms or on property grounds.

Housekeeping: A full housekeeping service is provided prior to check-in but there is no daily housekeeping service.

Check-in Instructions: Complete instructions, including access codes for the front door and for the suite, will be provided after balance is paid and a few days prior to check in.
