Frequently Asked Questions

Hermann Hill’s goal as your Missouri Wine Country lodging choice is simple…to provide the best hospitality and to make your stay at Hermann Hill a memorable one. To achieve  total guest-orientation, we wanted to share some frequently asked questions from guests.

What time is check-in?

Normal check-in time is between 4 PM and 6 PM. However, many guests have told us they like the option of checking in early with our early check-in procedure. You may come and register as early as 2pm.  Our early check-in procedure means you let us know you will be arriving early, and we will put your room on “priority” to be cleaned first. You can enjoy strolling through Hermann, visiting a Hermann winery, or have frozen margaritas and appetizers on our dining deck. Once your room is ready, we will call you on your cell phone. We do not guarantee rooms until 4:00 PM, but our staff will do everything they can to get you into your room early.

Where do I check-in?

All of our guests will check-in at our Vineyard Inn & Spa. If you are staying at the village, we will register you and provide you with helpful materials and keys to use during your stay.

How do I get to the Inn?

Although GPS is getting better we never recommend guests use it to find the Inn. Please feel free to use it to get to Hermann but follow these directions from there.

  • From Hwy 19 going south. Cross the Hermann Mo Bridge and go straight for 4 blocks and turn right onto  West 6th street, left onto Washington and right onto West 10th
  • From Hwy 100 east. Come through the Hermann down town area and turn left at the MO River Bridge and go straight for 4 blocks and turn right onto West 6th street, left onto Washington and right onto West 10th St.
  • From Hwy 19 headed north. Once you pass Hermann Ford make a left onto West 6th (If you have gone passed the BP gas station you have gone too far). Take a left onto Washington and right onto West 10th St.

When is check-out time?

Check-out time is 11 m. There are circumstances when we can sometimes give you a late check-out for a small fee.

Do you accept pets?

Yes, Hermann Hill offers pet friendly Missouri lodging to dog owners in select rooms. We know you love your fur babies as much as we love our Chocolate Lab, Lewis, that is why we have a special Paws and Pillows Package for your special companion when you arrive. They will be given a comfy pet bed, a traveling food bowl to take home and treats delivered to your room each evening. We just ask that you follow a few simple policies.

  • Book specific room: (Vidal, Seyval, Chambourcin or Any Cottage Room). We ask that you book these rooms so your pet will have easy access to an exercise area.
  • Pay a $50.00 non-refundable cleaning fee per stay, regardless of the number of nights. We assign extra cleaning staff following a dog occupying a room and must know in advance that you are bringing a pet, so that housekeeping can schedule a total room clean following your stay.
  • Agree not to leave your pets unattended any time during their stay.
  • When staying at the Inn, guests must not bring their dog into the kitchen or dining room areas and must request that their breakfast be delivered daily to their room.
  • Pets may not be on the beds, in tubs, or hot tubs. We will provide them with their own personal bed.
  • Pets must always be on a leash in any public area of the properties.
  • Pet owners pick up after their pets and will be responsible for any damage to the property.
  • Any disturbances such as barking must be curtailed to ensure other guests are not inconvenienced.
  • Housekeeping will not enter the room for a make-up unless the dog is with the owner and on a leash.

What forms of payments do you accept?
Hermann Hill accepts MasterCard, Visa, and Discover and gift certificates exclusively from the following entities:

  • Hermann Hill Gift Certificates-never expire and fully transferable
  • gift cards
  • Bed and Breakfast Inns of Missouri (BBIM) Gift Certificates

Is there a Cancellation Policy?

Cancellations made at least 10 days in advance of a scheduled arrival will be refunded, less a 10% handling fee, or fully exchanged (100%) for a gift certificate to be used at a future date. For cancellations less than 10 days in advance, a 50% refund will be provided. If we are able to re-book your room for another guest, a full refund will be provided, less a 10% handling fee. Cancellations made less than 24 hours prior to the reservation will receive no refund unless the room is able to be re-booked; in this case a 10% handling fee will be charged and 90% of your room fee will be refunded.

What do I do during Inclement Weather?

  • Hermann Hill always like to give our guests options when inclement weather arises.  If guests are unable to make their reservation due to bad weather, we will be happy to give them a Hermann Hill gift certificate at 100% that will never expire and is fully transferable.
  • TRAVEL INFORMATION AND ROAD CONDITIONS: A great online map is available at MODOT Traveler Information Map. We are always flexible on moving your reservation due to bad winter weather. Please call us (573-486-4455) with any travel questions or concerns or email us at
