What is your Lost and 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.

To ensure that you receive the confirmation email, add the address notifications@chargerback.com to the “white list” of any spam filter that may be running on your home computer or office email system. Note that if your item is found, it may take up to three days to reach our lost and found department. Items not claimed within 90 days will be donated to a local charity or discarded.
