Linens and Towel Service

If guests would like towels replaced, we ask that they are left outside of the room door by 10:00 am and the housekeeping staff will try to replace them by 12:00 pm. Hanging towels on hooks in the room signals that it will be reused.

Guest Comments

Every time a guest has something to tell us, whether it’s a maintenance issue, comment about the food, idea on how we can improve, a complaint, or a compliment, we want to hear about it! Your opinion means so much to us. During the last two meals of a group’s stay, Guest Satisfaction Surveys will be placed in baskets on the tables in the dining room to be filled out by our guests.

The staff appreciates and reads all the comments and ratings given on the Guest Satisfaction Surveys from guests and groups about Seabeck – including the bad, the good, and the great! It helps us to improve our services to you. We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your input.
