RECENTLY RENOVATED - NEW OWNERS
ABOUT The Norway Inn
We strive to provide our Guests with an exceptionally clean, safe, and friendly Motel experience. We have 2 EV charging stations available for our guests. At this time, we do not have any pet friendly rooms available, but we will have in the near future. The following Motel Policies and Procedures have been established based on industry standards, management and operational procedures, and our personal experience of owning and operating The Norway Inn. The Motel Policies and Procedures are considered a part of our reservation agreement. As our Motel Guest, by reading and signing your Motel registration form you are agreeing to abide by all of our Motel Policies and Procedures, terms and conditions. These Motel Policies and Procedures are presented here to help promote our Guests’ safety and enjoyment. Our Motel Policies and Procedures may change from time to time, so please check back often.
GUARANTEED RESERVATIONS AND PAYMENT:
Guests responsible for paying must be 21 years and older. A major credit card is required at the time of booking to guarantee the room and secure the reservation period.
Pursuant to credit card agreements, credit cards are not valid unless signed by the cardholder. We will refuse an unsigned card. We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover Card. Your Debit or Credit Card will be pre-authorized at check-in for the full amount of your stay. The pre-authorization will HOLD the funds until check-out, at which time the amount actually incurred during your stay will be charged. If you change your method of payment at check-out or change the length of your stay, your bank may not post the changes to your account immediately. The Norway Inn has no control over the policies of your bank and will not be held liable for any “insufficient funds” penalties or any other resulting fees or charges. It is your responsibility to fully understand the manner in which your bank processes pre-authorizations and charges to your debit or credit card.
Cash (USD) payment is welcomed with a signed and pre-authorized credit card. All Guests are required to present a valid major credit card and government issued photo identification even if Guests are planning on paying in cash upon check-out. Personal checks, travelers checks and foreign currency are not accepted. We do not provide check cashing services.
Reservations must be cancelled forty-eight (48 hours), Eastern Standard, The Norway Inn time, prior to your arrival date, in order to avoid a cancellation fee of one (1) room night, plus tax. Reservations will be held until 11:00 a.m. the morning following your scheduled arrival date. If you have not checked in by that time, a NO-SHOW charge of one room night, plus tax will be charged to your credit card and the balance of your reservations will be cancelled. The Norway Inn is not responsible for weather conditions, personal emergencies, or schedule changes.
Guests must be at least 21 years of age to check in at The Norway Inn. In the interests of security and to prevent fraud, Guests are required to confirm their identity by providing their valid government issued photo identification (State driver’s license, passport, etc.) at check-in. A valid, signed, and pre-approved credit card in the name of the Guest is also required. We require valid contact information from the Guest making the reservations including first and last name, address, phone number, and signature. The names of all Guests occupying the room must be registered. Information regarding your license plate/car description is also gathered at check-in for security.
