Our Valued Guests - COVID-19

At The Wayside, some things are back to normal and others are still a little different due to the ongoing pandemic and current labor shortage.  We will continue to update policies as we receive information from government officials and as staffing changes.  To ensure everyone’s safety, please do not visit the hotel if you have been sick within the last 14 days, had any COVID-19 symptoms, or have been exposed to COVID-19.   We are doing extra cleaning and sanitation, shields are installed at the front desk, and contactless check-in and check-out are still available.  Housekeeping stayover service will be limited and by request.  We are happy to deliver fresh towels and supplies and remove garbage daily if requested. Due to government order masks are required at indoor public areas of the hotel. The pool and hot tub are open.  Please wear a mask in the pool area when not swimming.
