Hotel Policies & FAQ


Cancellation Policy
Cancellations are accepted without penalty up to 72 hours before 3 PM on the day of arrival. Cancellations within the 72-hour day cancellation policy are subject to the first night's room and tax. No refunds. Please be aware that attempting to modify a reservation within the 72-hour cancellation period will be considered a cancellation. Please note that if you have booked your stay with a special offer or package, the cancellation policy will differ from our standard policy. The specific cancellation terms and conditions of your offer or package will apply. These terms are provided at the time of booking and can also be found in your booking confirmation email.

Lost & Found Policy
Seaside Inn is not responsible for lost, damaged, or stolen personal items. Should any guest lose personal belongings at our property, we record the item as "found." For items believed lost, our online Lost and Found form is the easiest and most efficient way to report lost items. Once you submit information on this form, you will receive immediate confirmation that your form has been successfully entered into our tracking system for processing. Your item will be immediately reviewed by Lost and Found personnel. You will receive a confirmation email once your item is found. Items not claimed within 90 days will be donated to a local charity or discarded. 

Pet Policy
There are a select number of pet-friendly rooms available. Please note that our pet fee is $25 per night (2 pets maximum and 60 lb limit) and is non-refundable. 

Guarantee Policy
Generally, we cannot guarantee any room number or location, although we make every effort to grant special requests.

Your well-being is our top priority, and we want to ensure your stay with us is safe. In line with our commitment to providing a comfortable stay, we occasionally conduct wellness checks on rooms that have displayed a "Do Not Disturb" sign for an extended period exceeding 24 hours. Please be assured that your privacy is of utmost importance to us, and our staff members are trained to perform these checks with discretion and respect for your personal space.
