Really??

So if I phone you in two weeks (or two days even) and say we have a room for the date you wanted you're still going to be looking, you'll not have booked somewhere else, you're going to instead sit and wait just in case I call.

 

Sorry..... I get this one a lot this time of year and it bugs me.

  We always ask them if they want to be put on the waiting list.  One time we were booked solid and turning people away and then had a last minute cancellation...  Lesson learned.

Have the type of place that they'll always cancel the other place just for the chance to stay with you

Some of them do! They don't wait, no, but they will cancel the other place!

Yes, some of them do, and I've had them cancel their reservation elsewhere to stay at my place. If I get a cancellation, it's nice to have someone on the waiting list to contact. Sometimes it lets me fill a room that would otherwise go empty.

Me too. My reservation system has a way for folks to fill out a waitlist form. There was one time that I had a waitlist of 3 people & actually had a cancellation 5 days before the guests were supposed to arrive. I went down the list trying to fill the room. Not a single waitlist-er took it. "Waist" of time!

ResKey has the wait list function.  So far the people who request are all trying to book for event days where everyone if full.  So far, no one has canceled and enabled me to inform the wait list people.

I have had that feature used (that is how I found it even existed) for a same-day rez. Called and got the 2-room rez.
