Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires public accommodations to provide goods and services to people with disabilities on an equal basis with the rest of the general public.
The Atlantic Hideaway has been in continuous operation as a hotel / motel since 1947, and as such, is classified as a preexisting facility under the ADA. As such, regulations require that architectural and communication barriers that are structural must be removed in public areas when their removal is readily achievable.The ADA defines readily achievable as “easily accomplishable and able to be carried out without much difficulty or expense.” The statutory definition also provides factors to be considered in determining whether barrier removal is readily achievable and recognizes what may be achievable for one business might not be for another (42 U.S.C. Section 12181(9)).
Atlantic Hideaway takes these responsibilities seriously, and has made adaptations, to the extent such adaptations are easily accomplishable based on the factors identified in 42 U.S.C. Section 12181(9). This includes website compliance.
