The following policies have been adopted due to the difficulties that cancellations and changes to bookings on short notice present to us as small independent hotel owners. We do not intentionally “over-book” our rooms to keep them filled, and rely on our customers’ reservations.
No-Shows will result in no refund of a deposit, and the customer will be charged for the total number of days of the original reservation.
Change of Dates
Changing of dates made 15 to 21 days before a reservation will result in a $25 fee.
Changing of dates made 14 days or less before to reservation cannot be accommodated.
Shortening of days in Reservation
Shortening of days in a reservation, made 21 days or less before a reservation cannot be accommodated, and the customer will be charged the total number of days of the original reservation. (Weekly reservations during July and August may not be shortened.)
Cancellations made 21 days or more before reservation will result in a refund of a customer deposit, less a $25.00 fee.
Cancellations made less than 21days but 8 or more, before reservation will result in a refund of a customer deposit, less a $25.00 fee, but only if the hotel can re-book all of the cancelled days. If the hotel cannot re-book all of the days then the customer deposit will be forfeited to the hotel.
Cancellations that are made 7 days or less before a reservation will result in no refund of a deposit, and the customer will be charged for the total number of days of the original reservation.
For purposes of these policies, “no-show” means a customer does not contact Ocean Inn in any way to advise of cancellation and has to be called just before office closing, date of reservation to verify arrival; “changing of dates” means the changing or moving to different dates than a customer currently has reserved at the hotel; “shortening of stay,” means the reduction of the time a customer has reserved at the hotel while still retaining some reserved time at the hotel and “cancellation” means the cancellation of a customer’s entire reserved time at the hotel.
We are pleased to provide you with a completely smoke-free environment, which reflects the preference expressed by the majority of our guests. There is no smoking of any kind or vaping allowed on our property.
