Emergency Info

Godley Manor has taken many precautions to protect your safety and security during your stay.  Please take a moment to review this information intended to ensure your safety.  Please be sure you know the location of the nearest fire exit.  These exits are easily accessible at each end of the corridors. In the event of a fire, please observe the following safety procedures: Obtain your room key and go to the door. Feel the door with the back of your hand for heat.  If the door is hot, do not exit. With your door ajar, check the corridor to ensure it is accessible and safe. After exiting, close your door behind you and walk to the nearest safe exit. If there is smoke present, drop to your hands and knees and crawl to the nearest exit. Make your way down the stairs and exit the building. Do not attempt to re-enter the building until cleared by fire and hotel officials. If unable to exit your guest room, please follow these safety procedures: Contact the Hotel Operator and give them your room number and number of persons in the room. Turn off all heat or air conditioning controls. Fill the bathtub and sink with water. This water may be used to wet towels or fight fire if needed. Hang or wave a bed sheet by the window to attract attention to fire officials. Do not break or open the window as it may draw smoke and fire into your room. Should it become necessary to leave your room, remember to crawl on your hands and knees under smoke. In any emergency, remain calm and do not panic.


Innkeepers are available at the Front Desk to assist you from 10am to 6pm.  After 6pm we will lock the doors and you will use your key to access the building.   Please be aware that we are NOT at the desk after 6pm.  If you misplace your room keys, you could be locked out overnight.  There will be a $25 charge for lost keys.
