Beachfront Inn loves dogs, and our entire first floor is dog-friendly. Well-behaved dogs are free to play off-leash and enjoy the water on our beautiful sand beach, but for the safety of dogs and guests alike, we ask that all dogs be leashed in all other areas of the Beachfront Inn property. 

Just a Few Ground Rules for Dogs and their People

  • Download and complete our DOG WAIVER, or fill one out at check-in.
  • Dogs are not allowed in the pool area or non-dog rooms.
  • Dogs must be kept on leash at all times while in public areas. However, dogs are allowed to run free on the beach and water as long as they do not disturb other guests.
  • Noise/disruption and complaints – If hotel management receives more than 2 complaints, alternative arrangements must be made for your dog.
  • You must ‘pick up’ after your dog on all areas of the property, including the sand beach. Doggie bags are provided to you and are also located around the property.
  • Guest will be held responsible for any and all damage caused by, or liability arising from, his/her dog to any person or hotel property. Guestrooms will be inspected at check-out.
