If direct billing hasn’t been arranged 100% of the invoice must be paid prior to the event.

If your event has a host bar we will estimate the bar at 4 drinks per person times the cost of the drinks including tax and gratuity. A credit card is also required to pay for the bar if you go over the estimated number of drinks. We will refund your credit card if you do not use the number of estimated drinks. Payments can be made by certified cheque, cash or credit card.
The Best Western Inn on the Bay will allow a 20% reduction in the total expected guests 30 days prior to the event. Should the expected numbers be reduced by more than the 20%, a charge of 50% of the estimated difference of the food and beverage cost will apply.
