HOYT HOUSE BED AND BREAKFAST POLICIES

POLICIES: Updated June 1st, 2021

We pledge to make our B&B as safe and welcoming as possible. We take great care in the cleanliness and serenity of our property. We know that we all need to feel safe. We want you to feel safe. We are working very hard to keep our space clean for our family and guests.

For the safety of our guests and our staff, the following changes are in place:

GENERAL-

[] Front and rear doors are kept locked at all times. You will need to call upon arrival to be let into the home. At that time, you will be given keys to go and come as you please. This is to ensure non-guests are not walking through the property for the safety of guests and staff.

ROOMS -

[] We are continuing to thoroughly clean & disinfect our rooms.
[] Daily room service is temporarily suspended unless requested.
[] Please respect our home and do not bring food into your room (light snacks are ok). We welcome you to use the front porch, dining room or back pool area for any meals you may have taken away. We don't like unwanted bugs.


BREAKFAST -

[] Guests are assigned a seating time (8 AM or 9 AM) Seating time is assigned based on occupancy.
[] Coffee and Tea service is available

----------------------------------------------------------------
CANCELLATION & NO SHOW POLICY
We are a small business and cancellations affect us in a big way. We want to be fair since we know that your plans can change.

Cancellations on the 14th day or less before your reservation (30 days for holidays and special events) will be subject to a forfeiture of your deposit (50% of your total stay).

The most important thing is to talk to us – as soon as you know you may not be able to use a reservation and we can help you navigate through it all. If you have booked with Expedia or another 3rd party booking engine, you need to log-in to your account on those platforms and use the tools that they offer.

No show – if you simply do not show up for your reservation, you will be charged 100% of the cost of your stay.

Hoyt House Gift Certificates may be redeemed calling us directly or through our website. We do not accept 3rd Party gift cards.

WEATHER & HURRICANE POLICY
We cannot be responsible for -delays, interruptions, cancellations, closings or inconveniences in your trip due to weather. However, if you have a confirmed reservation and you are due to arrive within 48 hours and an evacuation order (due to hurricane warning) is issued, you will receive a transfer of any deposits to a future reservation. No refunds will be made. We highly suggest travel insurance: www.insuremytrip.com

· All rates are subject to state and county bed tax and may change without notice. Currently, the rate is 12% added to your nightly rate. 18% Gratuity is added for Full house rentals

· Visa, Master card, Discover and American Express are accepted.

DEPOSITS
When you reserve with us, a deposit equal to 50% of the cost of your reservation will be charged to your credit card when your reservation is made. This deposit is fully refunded if you cancel your reservation at least 15 days prior to your arrival date.

CHECK-IN
Check-in is anytime from 3pm to 6pm. All rooms are guaranteed for arrival between these times.

Parking is in the rear of the home.

Late arrival check in is available. If you must check in after 6pm, please call so we can discuss the timing.

CHECK-OUT
Check-out is 11am. Just drop off your key at the front desk. If you added anything to your account, it will be charged to your room and charged to the card on file.

We’re sorry, but we do not offer late check-out. We need all the time between 11am and 3pm to clean the rooms for the next guests.

Lost room key charge is $35.00 and will be charged to your account if you leave with a room key. Return the key and get your $35 refunded.

Once you have checked in, you are a registered guest. You may come and go as you please. If you are returning from a night out after 10pm, we ask that you do so quietly. Many guests will be in bed by that time.

NON-REGISTERED GUESTS
As a general rule, people who are not registered as guests are not permitted into the B&B. This is a private home, and for the safety and security of all guests and our home, we need to know who is here at all times.

The parlor, dining room, porches, and pool area are reserved for overnight guests only and are not available for non-guest gathering without prior approval from the inn manager. Please understand that approval cannot always be granted, and in some cases a fee may apply.

We do wish to ensure a great stay for everyone, so if you have a special request, we just ask that you check with your inn manager in advance.

DAMAGES
Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We ask that you respect our home during your stay. We expect regular wear on bedding, carpets, etc., and we replace them routinely when they show normal wear so that our guests are comfortable.

Extraordinary cleaning of stains on carpets, towels, damaged sheets, pillow cases, robes and duvet covers will be charged for. Should we not be able to remove stains left behind, we reserve the right to charge for replacement of the article damaged.

FOOD IS NOT ALLOWED IN GUEST ROOMS
Just to be clear, because we are all adults, you can bring a bottle of wine or some beer. You can bring those in a soft cooler, no hard coolers allowed in the rooms. You can also keep your beverages in the Guest Fridge on the main floor. We will be happy to provide you with wine glasses or beer glasses. You are responsible for any damages that result from any beverages spilled in the room. See Damages above.

You can bring some light snacks like chips or nuts. What you can’t do is bring a steaming hot pizza, fish and chips or Big Macs into the guest rooms. There is nowhere to eat a full meal in the room and it attracts unwanted bugs. You can eat your take-out on the front porch or by the pool. These are great spaces for eating. The guest rooms are great spaces for sleeping.

We respect your personal information. When we collect your information, we do so only to communicate with you about your stay with us, to allow the transaction of charges and to keep you informed about events at Hoyt House B&B or the local tourism region.

While you are staying with us, your personal privacy is very important to us. Each guest room has a secure locking door, and we encourage you to keep your room locked at all times. We will not enter your room without your express permission and then only to perform housekeeping tasks to enhance your comfort and the cleanliness of the space. We are not responsible for any missing items during your stay.

There are smoke detectors in each guest room, and a carbon monoxide detector on each floor. There is an emergency flash light in each guest rooms bathroom as well as emergency lighting in hallways.

We are proud that we have guests from every walk of life. We honor and respect the diversity of our guests, and we expect the same of everyone we invite into our home.

ADULT ONLY ACCOMMODATION
We are a space for adults to unwind from work, family and the other stressors that we all face. Many of our guests choose us for adult-only, quiet conversation and private time.

First time at a B&B? Here is what you can expect at this Amelia Island B&B

Convenient Location!

Pull in and park. Leave your bags in the car and come on in. After your welcome and introduction, we will show you to your room. After you can retrieve your luggage from the car and not have to see it again until you leave. Everything is within walking distance. Want to visit the beach, enjoy our complimentary bikes.

Warm Friendly Staff!

Operation “Coordinate Your Every Wish and Spoil You Every Second” begins now! You will be greeted by one of our staff. We will share with you all the information you need with regard to your stay, and getting around town in general. We will refer you to the best restaurants and attractions based on our experiences and your interests, and we would be delighted to make reservations for you, right there on the spot or later, after you’ve had time to think about how you wish for your Amelia Island getaway to take form.

Comfort!

In your room you will find period antiques, a flat-screen television with standard dish satellite, perhaps a period fireplace, and luxurious bedding. Our bedding is imported 600 thread count finest combed prima cotton. You can even take a fresh set home; we have them on sale at the front desk, so see your innkeeper if interested!

In your private bath (whether tub or shower), you will find the luxurious Gilchrest & Soames London collection of bath products. This line features sophistication and style, synonymous with London for centuries encapsulated in understated elegance. Crisp, clean and tailored to fit the needs of today’s genteel traveler, the London Collection is infused with antioxidant-rich botanicals renowned for their beneficial attributes, combining detoxifying red tea, soy, gingko biloba, grape seed, and moisturizing milk thistle in a dynamic blend. That bath experience is complimented by the plush 100% combed cotton oversized bath sheets, robes and his & her wraps.

WiFi is available throughout the inn, but as in your home, it is stronger in some areas more than others. Always feel free to ask your innkeeper to Google and/or print something for you! Your innkeeper also has a binder full of current restaurant menus, and there are dozens of local attraction rack cards located in the parlor. At this Amelia Island B&B, your best reference indeed will be your innkeeper! If we don’t know the answer to your question, we will find that answer, promptly!
