Registration/Payments & Fees.
These terms and conditions apply to all guests, sponsors, and invitees who shall be jointly and severally liable for all charges incurred by any of them hereunder, and any increased rate due to additional guests or change in length of stay. A security deposit authorization of $30 per night, but at least $200, unless specially otherwise set must be authorized upon check-in, however since authorizations last only up to 30 days, if your stay is over 25 nights, the security deposit shall be a refundable charge to your credit card upon check in. Essex Manor accepts Visa, Mastercard and Discover. A valid photo ID (passport, drivers license or ID card) is required of each guest upon check in. If the security authorization cannot be paid by credit card at check-in, or if a valid unexpired photo ID is not presented, or if the photo or signature does not match the credit card, the guest may not check in, and any deposit will only be refunded to the extent we are able to re-rent the room for the dates reserved, less administrative costs. We do not accept cash.
