34 state policies

Staying at 34 State will always be a relaxing and easy experience, however we do have a few policies when making reservations and during your stay.  Please note the following:


Reservation Policies:


Please understand that we are a small operation of only 2 suites so we must adhere to very strict cancellation policies.  We thank you in advance for understanding the nature of our business and following this policy.

  • we have a 2 or 3 night minimum on many weekends throughout the year.  if a weekend is not booked as of the thursday prior to the weekend we may release the suite for a shorter stay for that weekend.  Please contact us at or call 315-730-4690 to request a shorter than our minimum stay requirement.  

  • 50% of payment is due at time of making reservation, the remainder will be charged to your credit card 30 days prior to arrival.

  • cancellations of nightly reservations made greater than 30 days prior to arrival will receive full deposit less $50 cancellation fee per suite booked.

  • reservations that are cancelled less than 30 days prior to your arrival date, the guest is responsible for the full reservation charges.   please understand that we are a very small establishment and only offer 2 suites so cancellations are very detrimental to our small business.  please be sure of your reservation and dates before booking.

  • when  reserving an extended stay of 30 days or more your cancellation period will be as stated on your lease or 180 days. 

  • Specials, packages, promotions or last minute discounts are not valid on prior reservations.  Prior reservations cannot be transferred to another suite after booking in order to receive a last minute special or lower rate that has become available since the time of your booking reservation.

  • we are not responsible for errors or omissions on 3rd party booking engines information about our property.
