COVID-19 UPDATES TO POLICIES AND PROCEDURES (updated 11/10/22):
The safety of our guests and staff is very important to us. Due to the current situation with COVID-19, we have updated our policies and procedures as below.
CONTACTLESS CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT: We are providing online check-in and self-check-out. You will be sent an email a week prior to your arrival with a link to complete the check-in process online before arriving, letting us know your arrival time, authorizing any final payment if necessary, and agreeing to our updated policies and COVID-19 terms and conditions. Once we’ve received your online self-check-in form and final payment has been confirmed, arrangements will be made and details communicated to you for accessing your room and self-check-out.
By confirming your booking, you agree to receive SMS messages from us regarding your reservation prior, during, and after your stay. You may opt out of these messages at any time by replying “Stop.”
CLEANING MEASURES: Clean rooms have always been extremely important to us. The products we use to clean and sanitize are EPA-approved disinfectants for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19. In addition to our already stringent cleaning policies, our staff is taking extra care to thoroughly clean and sanitize any high touch areas (such as handles, knobs, remotes, keys, etc).
HOUSEKEEPING: Our staff is vaccinated and performing regular housekeeping services for our valued guests. Please be sure to place any used towels on the floor to be replaced. Please see below for details of services provided.
Guests staying a week or more will receive sheet change(s) mid-week unless otherwise requested. Please let us know if you need additional sheet changes during your stay. We are happy to accommodate.
Our regularly scheduled housekeeping services usually occur between 10am and 12pm (to early afternoon) and include the following:
- The bed will be made if there is nothing on it.
- Any used towels that have been left on the floor will be exchanged for fresh towels.
- Supplies/amenity items will be refreshed.
- Trash will be emptied.
- Sheets will be changed for weekly stays midweek.
If you would like to schedule additional sheet changes for your stay, need a different housekeeping schedule, need a no-contact option or anticipate needing any vacuuming or extra housekeeping, we are happy to try to work with you. Please contact us by phone or email prior to arrival to discuss.
Thank you for your patience during this unusual time. We want our guests to feel welcome, safe and “at home” when staying with us at Captain’s Landing Waterfront Inn.
