Dear Deborah, The authorization of a guests credit card for damages and incidentals is a hotel industry standard. Even Hilton and Marriot follow this practice. A call to your credit card company will also confirm that not only is this a standard practice, that it is 100% legal. I believe this was explained to you by our Manager on Duty... More

We stayed at the Golden Inn because a friend of ours was getting married there on the beach. It was wonderful! A place where you could drink your coffee on the beach in the morning and hey cocktail in the evening... Perfect!

My company held our Group’s offsite meeting at the Golden Inn early September and couldn’t ask for better hospitality. Everyone was so friendly and a joy to work with especially Jackie. I highly recommend the Golden Inn for business and pleasure!
