Property and Cancelation Policies :
A deposit equivalent to 50% of the total reservation cost is mandatory for bookings of two nights or more. For one-night reservations, the full amount is payable upfront and is non-refundable from Memorial Day through fall. The remaining balance for stays of two or more nights will be charged within 48 hours prior to arrival. No refunds will be issued for early departures.
In order to receive a refund of your deposit, minus a $100 handling fee per room, we require a cancellation notice at least 14 days prior to arrival. For cancellations made within 14 days of arrival, the 50% deposit will be forfeited. One-night reservations will forfeit the entire amount charged. Should a guest have paid in full rather than the 50% deposit, the full amount will be forfeited within the 14-day cancellation period. Cancellations made within 48 hours of arrival will result in a forfeiture of the full reservation amount.
Please note, once a reservation is transferred or modified, it becomes non-refundable. A fee of $50 per standard room or $100 per suite plus taxes applies for transfers or changes of date within 14 days of check-in. Any transferred or changed reservations must be confirmed by both written and verbal consent from the original booker. Once a reservation is transferred or changed, it becomes non-refundable. Changes or transfers are not permitted within 48 hours of check-in. All rates are based on double occupancy, with an additional charge of $30 (low season) or $40 (high season and OTA bookings) per extra person per night, where applicable.
OTA Cancellation Policy:
Reservations made via Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) will be charged 50% of the total price if cancelled after booking, and the entire cost if cancelled within 14 days of arrival. The remaining balance will be charged in the 14 days prior to arrival. If the rate plan selected on the OTA was a non-refundable rate, the full amount will be forfeited upon cancellation, regardless of when the cancellation occurs.
Any reservations affected by force majeure circumstances will be granted hotel credit for the respective stay, with supporting documentation required. A fee of $50 per standard room or $100 per suite plus taxes applies for transfers or changes of date within 14 days of check-in. Any transferred or changed reservations must be confirmed by both written and verbal consent from the original booker. Once a reservation is transferred or changed, it becomes non-refundable. Transfers and changes of date are not permitted within 48 hours of check-in.
Non-Refundable Rate Policy:
Bookings made under our non-refundable rate are not eligible for a refund or credit under any circumstances, including force majeure. Full payment is required at the time of booking. This rate cannot be combined with any other discounts or promotions, and is only valid for direct bookings with Ocean View Terrace Inn, not OTAs. The maximum stay length under this rate is 7 nights.
COVID-19/Force Majeure Notice:
Effective June 1, 2020, our standard cancellation policy applies, irrespective of COVID-19. We encourage you to opt for a flexible booking option should your travel plans be prone to change. For reservations made on or after June 1, 2020, please consider the risks associated with COVID-19 and related government measures. If you opt for a non-flexible rate, you may not be entitled to a refund. Cancellation requests will be handled based on your chosen policy and applicable consumer law. We recommend choosing a booking option with cancellation flexibility during times of uncertainty.
