Know Before you Go

Before you make reservations, you may have a few questions about what to expect By the Sea. We’ve compiled a list of frequently asked question from over the years and are proud to introduce our very first edition of Know Before You Go!:

Quoted rates are based on single or double occupancy. A $10 fee will be added to the rate for each additional adult occupying the room. Kids under 17 and staying with a parent or guardian stay free. Guests must be 18 or older unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. Guests under 18 and traveling without a parent or guardian must provide a minor consent form, completed in advance and must pay the extra adult fee. A $100 per person cash damage deposit, refundable at checkout, is required for all guests occupying a room under 25. Holidays, special events and weekends may require a minimum length of stay.
