Best Rate Guarantee

Beach Terrace


Making a hotel reservation isn't as simple as it used to be. With dozens of websites displaying a dizzing array of rates for our hotel, who actually offers the best rate? We do. And when you Book Direct through us, you're supporting our family-owned business and allowing us the best opportunity to support your reservation.

With alternative websites, specific requests like room locations, early arrival, reservation changes, and special attention are much more difficult for us to fulfill. Even worse, these alternative websites charge us exhorbitant fees that require us to consider higher rates each year. That's why we're offering our Best Rate Guarantee as a reward for booking direct. Consider it a good faith effort to ensure you're booking with confidence.

How it works

  • To be eligible for our Best Rate Guarantee, you must have booked a stay through
  • If within 24 hours of this booking you find a publicly available and immediately bookable room rate online for the same stay that is lower in price, simply submit a claim request as described below. Your claim must be submitted within 24 hours of your booking.
    • Please verify that the competing rate fulfills the following: same type of room, same number of guests, same dates of stay, same length of stay, same cancellation policy, and same booking conditions.

If we can confirm the availability of the competing rate, Beach Terrace agrees to match the competing rate for the same stay you booked through, plus provide you with an additional 10% off this room rate as a reward for booking direct.

 Additional Information

  • If you booked a prepaid stay through and submit a valid claim, we will refund you the original rate and charge you the new rate. 
  • Each claim may only cover (1) room, and a guest may submit only (1) claim per night. For a valid claim, only one (1) Best Rate Guarantee will be issued per stay regardless of the length of the stay.

  • We may deny claims relating to a time during which or certain rates are not available due to an outage, technical issues or circumstance beyond our reasonable control.
