    Help! I under-charged a guest!

    Thanks Kathleen! I was not going to dignify it with a reply. You run your business the way I used to run mine and I would never give a penny of my income to an OTA..thankfully back then it wasn't necessary.

    There is a section called REVIEW EXPRESS on TA. I have not worked with it but clients have.

    If this is not a B and B right now it shouldn't be listed here. We are not a realty site. Just because you think it would make a b & b doesn't mean it should be here . sorry

    Help! I under-charged a guest!

    I would eat the $40 as it was your fault. No way I would charge the guest. Good lesson learned....and why do you pay those OTA's such a huge commission. NO WAY FOR ME!!!

    Hand-written reviews to online?

    There is some special feature on TRIP ADVISOR..I can't remember the name now...but innkeepers can enter comments from guests. A former client of mine uses it all the time.

    Hand-written reviews to online?

    NO ONE and I mean NO ONE is going to read 250 reviews you post on your website! Of course you will only post good ones and people know that. That is why they look to TA.

    All in a day's work

    Using you as extended care! I'd say he is being a bit presumptive. I am not sure how I would react to this. I know you want to be nice to the guy but gheez their are limits. If I were a guest there I would be avoiding him like the plague. You need to be charging him for all the nursing care...

    All you can do is Knock and hope for a reply or gave a clean the room hangar for doorknob and TELL THEM TO USE IT. It should not say " do not disturb" it should say "please clean room"

    Wondering about Innmates who've moved on...

    They had an auction of household stuff, the place is still listed on Zillow. I believe in NC but have not heard from her.

    Enough with the review requests!

    I delete them all. I don't want to be bothered. If I am somewhere and pleased with place or service I will do a review on my own. No need to ask me. I bet most feel the same

    Well....THAT was askward

    I stuck to policies and you would prevent issues like this is you would as well. If they show up with kid, show them the policy page they CHECKED. Tell them you can't make exceptions...because you know someone is going to say so on TA!!!. My friends do this often. They will suggest other places...
