Sleep Woodstock Motel Policies/House Rules

Motel Policy/House Rules

We provide our guests with an exceptionally clean, safe, and friendly Woodstock, VT motel experience, possible in part by the policies we’ve developed for individual travelers and groups reserving room blocks. The following Motel Policy/House Rules have been established based on industry standards and our personal experience and are considered a part of our reservation agreement with you. By reading and signing your Motel registration, you are agreeing to abide by all of our Motel Policy/House Rules, terms and conditions, and procedures. Our Motel Policy/House Rules may change from time to time, so please check back often. Our Motel Policy/House Rules are posted on our website, and a copy is available at Reception. 

All rates are quoted in United States currency and are subject to change at any time without notice, at the Motel’s discretion. Rates are based upon double occupancy, and additional guests in a room will automatically be charged a fee of $15.00 per person per night. Up to two children under the age of 13 may stay with paying adults at no additional cost if using existing beds. There will be an additional charge of $15.00 per person per night for each child over the limit. Children 13 years of age and up are considered adults for purposes of room rates. When making reservations you must advise the Motel of the correct number of guests. Should it be found that additional guests are in the room beyond what is indicated on the reservation, the appropriate charges will be added.

By signing your Motel registration, you expressly authorize us to charge your credit card for the cost of additional guests staying in your room.

The state of Vermont and the town of Woodstock each require collection of a “Meals and Rooms Tax” which will be added to the room rates indicated at the time of your reservation.

Well behaved children of all ages are welcome. Please see the RATES section for cost. As parents, guardians, or chaperones, you are personally and legally responsible for and must supervise your children at all times. For safety reasons, please do not leave children unattended in guest rooms or allow them to roam the Motel property unsupervised.

A limited number of rollaway beds are available upon request. We do not provide cribs. Availability for rollaway beds is on a first-come, first-served basis. The charge is $15.00 each per night, plus tax. Maximum capacity of rollaways is one per room.

Double Rooms  maximum occupancy is 5; King Rooms maximum occupancy is 3; Suite maximum occupancy is 8. If you exceed the maximum number of guests allowed, you will be asked to rent another guest room for proper accommodations.

We welcome well-trained dogs and their responsible owners in Pet-Friendly Rooms only. Not all rooms are Pet-Friendly, to allow for guests who may have allergies or who are concerned about staying in Pet-Friendly Rooms. Please be sure you have selected a Pet-Friendly Room.

There is an additional charge of $20.00 per night per dog (with the exception of registered service animals with appropriate papers, for which there is no additional fee) with a maximum of two dogs allowed per unit. Rooms that require special cleaning due to animal stains, or rooms where guests have brought animals to stay without first notifying Sleep Woodstock Motel, will be assessed an additional $250.00 cleaning fee.

All canine guests must have up-to-date vaccinations, be flea- and tick-free and of a gentle nature. Dogs may not be left alone in the room unless crated nor are they allowed on beds and furniture, and they must be leashed and under control of their owners at all times while on our property. We reserve the right to ask doggie parents to leave the Motel without refund in the event another guest complains about barking or other issues. Guests are responsible for cleaning up after their pets on Motel property and in the neighborhood.

Guests agree to indemnify and hold harmless Sleep Woodstock, its owners and operators from all liability and damage suffered as a result of the guest’s pet, including property damage and/or personal injury.

By signing your Motel registration, you expressly authorize us to charge your credit card for the cost of all cleaning fees and/or damages.

If you have any questions or concerns about our Pet Policy, please ask us at time of reservation.

We require valid contact information from the guest making the reservations including first and last name, billing address, email address, and phone number/mobile number.

All reservations must be paid at time of booking with a valid major credit card or cash. We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover Card. Checks and foreign currency are not accepted. If a guest pays with cash at time of registration, we require that a valid major credit card be provided as a guarantee for any damages or extra cleaning fees.

In the case of a third party paying for a room, we require prior completion and approval of a Credit Card Authorization form including a copy of the payer’s driver’s license and the front and back of his/her signed credit card. The payer must agree to be financially responsible for any and all damages and loss incurred by the guest. We reserve the right to refuse reservation by third parties at any time for any reason.

All cancellations must be requested in writing and are not deemed valid unless we reply in writing to confirm.

We are a small Motel, and cancellations significantly impact our business. If you need to cancel a reservation, please let us know as early as possible.

To provide all of our guests with an exceptionally clean and safe Motel experience, we reserve the right to enter guest rooms for reasonable purposes, such as for housekeeping, maintenance, to verify that the room, its furnishings, and mechanical equipment are intact, or to address or prevent a violation of our Motel Policy/House Rules.

Your comfort is very important to us. For guests staying multiple nights, bed linen is changed on a rotation schedule.

Housekeeping will not enter/clean any room with an uncrated pet.

Rooms are inspected by Housekeeping during cleaning and at the conclusion of a stay. If the inspection indicates that a guest has smoked in their room, cooked, or brought a prohibited item into our facility against the Motel Policy/House Rules, a cleaning fee of $250.00 will be assessed, and the guest may be asked to leave without any refund.

Many people have asked us how staff gratuities should be handled. We believe that service is a profession, and that tips for value-added services are completely at the guest’s discretion. Tips are not included in the room rates at Sleep Woodstock Motel. Any tip you choose to offer your housekeeper will be graciously received and warmly appreciated.

For guests who are wondering how much to tip, here’s what Emily Post says: “$2-$5 per day, left daily with a note marked “Housekeeping”.

Sleep Woodstock Motel is not responsible for any item left behind by a guest. If you discover that you have left something behind, please call us immediately at 802-332-6336 and we will try to assist you in locating your lost item.

Items found in a room after departure will be collected, logged in, and kept in a secure location for 14 days. Reasonable effort will be made to notify the guest that an item has found. If your contact information is incorrect or we are unable to contact you during the 14 day holding period, the unclaimed item(s) will subsequently be thrown away, given to local charities, or otherwise disposed of by Sleep Woodstock Motel.

Upon request, we would be happy to return your lost items to you by United States Postal Service. Your credit card will be charged packaging and postage costs, plus a $5.00 handling fee.
