    Help with bedding

    I've never understood why they don't make duvet covers that open on 3 sides so you could just open it up like a book, lay the duvet on it, and close it back up, with zippers or Velcro or even snaps. I actually bought a roll of Velcro a few months ago with the intention of cutting a duvet cover...

    Air Host Service Fee

    Maybe this has been there for a while, but I just noticed that, in addition to charging the guest a service fee, Air is now charging the host a 3% host service fee that they deduct from the host's payout. So I'll be raising my Air rates 3%.

    New TripAdvisor policies?

    Yes, I have that. I get a lot of clicks from the TA page, but I have to scroll back months to find one that actually booked from TA. Almost all my booking are from my own website, and other places, like the state parks & tourism site, chamber of commerce, etc. I don't know why so many people...

    New TripAdvisor policies?

    TripConnect bills me $25 to $40/month, so somebody is clicking my listing, but it may be TA staffers [eyeroll]. When people answer my reservation page question on how they found us, they NEVER mention TA. Usually mention Google. I logged into TA and went to "My Business". It immediately asked...

    New TripAdvisor policies?

    Same here. Maybe they're rolling it out slowly and we'll get hit later.

    Two In A Room

    I don't recall how it is now, but I remember that the first time I visited Europe, the hotels there usually charged "per room" regardless of number of people, while the US has always charged extra for more than 2 in a room. So the incentive here is to book for 2, then slip in more people...

    Two In A Room

    I hope you thanked him for the purchase as you charged his card! I also offered to cancel my recent trouble guest with no cancellation fee if they wanted to go to Days Inn. The woman said, no, we don't have time to move. I'll bet! They were staying in my 1100 sq ft apartment. Can't compare with...

    I'll follow this. I deleted their email without reading it!

    Two In A Room

    Oh yes, I got chewed out a few weeks ago because the couple arrived and there was no sofa bed for them to use for the 3rd and 4th person they brought. I said, "But you made the reservation for 2 people. If I'd known it was 4, I would have set up the queen size air mattress, and it would have...

    Two In A Room

    Maybe if you named it the "Bathroom Down The Hall" room. :ROFLMAO: No, they still wouldn't get the message.

    Two In A Room

    Happens a few times a year. How about you?... Reservation comes in for 2 people in the room. They arrive and are shocked, SHOCKED that the room is just a king size bed, and they have to share with a brother or friend. Of course, the website says there's just one bed, but, as we know, nobody...

    Whip it, whip it good

    Yes, cheese goes amazingly well with apple pie. Also, the national food of Arkansas is cheese dip and tortilla chips!

    Dumitru and My New Website!

    Ah yes. I still have them. Just tried to get the experience out of my mind. Did not realize bras are expensive, having never bought one!

    Dumitru and My New Website!

    Yes, lesson well learned! That gift from the Innspiring Road Trippers might have remained hanging from the ceiling fan for months if they hadn't texted me from the road, reminding me to look up...where they had left a huge bra on one of the fan blades.

    Dumitru and My New Website!

    Good memories! You and Joey Bloggs, Innkeep and Ice. The great Innspiring Road Trip. Those were the days, my friend, we thought they'd never end...
