For $5.00/night, the guest will receive a hang tag for the rearview mirror, which must be displayed for the duration of the visit.  Payment may be paid by check or money order at the time of register.  (Friday and Saturday nights are free.)  Guests may also park on the street, as there is some metered parking available, or at any of the local parking facilities.
