While we very much would like to accommodate all requests for early arrival it simply is not always possible.

During times of increased occupancy both in the summer and weekends in the off season, this is at the complete discretion of the Front Office staff and will be determined ONLY after 8am on the morning of check out based on availability.

Please note that we welcome our guests to check out of their suites by 11am so that we can prepare the suite for the next guests however guests that are checking out are welcome to leave their car parked at the hotel until 4pm and use the beach, facilities, showers and changing rooms for the remainder of the day.

30. What is your cancellation policy?
We understand that no guest ever “plans” on canceling their reservations. And, we understand no guest ever desires to pay a fee. However, cancellation policies are a standard practice throughout the travel industry. Reservations that are made as part of a group of 10 or more rooms and made via our Sales Office must cancel their reservations at least 72 hours prior to arrival. Reservations for the one bedroom suites for guests not staying as part of a group booked via our Sales office are considered transient reservations and must be canceled at least 7 days prior to arrival. Reservations for the two and three bedroom condos for reservations in July and August must cancel at least 30 days prior to arrival. Reservations for the two and three bedroom condo all other times of the year must be canceled 7 days prior to arrival. PLEASE note that there IS a cancellation fee even if the reservation is cancelled within the time frames above. This cost is $25.00 plus tax for suites and condos for all times of the year with the exception of reservations for the two and three bedroom condos in July and August for which the cancellation fee is $100.00. We ask our guests to understand that this is not a “penalty”. Unfortunately, the hotel must pay a fee to the credit card companies when we process a credit card for an advance deposit. Then, when a reservation is cancelled we are not only not refunded that fee we, in fact, incur a second transaction fee to refund an advance deposit. Accordingly, the cancellation fees are simply to offset the charges the hotel incurs from the credit card companies. Please note that the policies above are not able to be waived under any circumstances. Thank you.
31. What if I have to leave earlier than my reserved departure date?
We understand that no guest ever plans on canceling all or part of their reservation. However, requests are received daily, many in the event of emergencies, and we are unable to make exceptions to the no refund for early departure policy. We understand that no guest desires to be held accountable to cancellation fees however such fees are a standard part of the travel industry. It is important to note that just as guests have the right to expect the hotel to hold the room for the number of nights confirmed, the hotel has the same reasonable right to expect the reservation will be paid in full since while we were holding that reservation other guests were turned away for the suite or condo in question.
32. What if there is a storm?
As standard in the travel industry, inclement weather is not a valid reason for cancellation. The only exception made to this policy is when the Town of Ocean City implements a Hurricane evacuation plan for our area. Only in the case of an actual hurricane evacuation plan by the Town of Ocean City will reservations will be rescheduled or refunded based on availability and without penalty.
33. Are you a chain hotel?
No, we are privately owned and independently operated. We have a sister property; Princess Bayside on 48th Street and the Bay in Ocean City.
34. Where may comments, compliments or concerns be directed?
Our Front Desk staff will be more than happy to assist you during your stay within the guidelines of the policies stated on your confirmation and on this web site. Please note, however, all staff and department managers are required to enforce the same policies and procedures. Additional comments, compliments or concerns may be emailed to the Executive Offices at firstname.lastname@example.org. All email received will be reviewed by the General Manager.
