    fee for cleaning?

    Good morning, This isn't the very first time, but we have an older guest who just told me that he's had an "accident & ruined your linens."

    Never again....

    So it's the summer...& it's a crazy season for us.. lots of last minutes, one nights, & big groups trying to pass as "two" people & sneak into rooms.

    Credit card machines

    My apologies if this has been recently discussed. I tried searching, but didn't locate the answer. I currently pay $30/mos PLUS 2.5% for swipe & 3% for manual transactions (i.e. 1/2 of all, since we take a deposit at the time of booking) & am seeking a less expensive option. Does one exist? Any...

    T/A changed format & now B&B is BELOW Hotels-1/2 way down the page!

    As of a day or so, Trip Advisor has combined their "Hotels" & "B&B" categories such that you have to scroll 1/2 way down the page to find the "B&Bs," which then begin again with #1... Many people will likely not look that far, or look quickly & go through the first couple of listings (ALL...
