Had a couple that were scheduled to arrive at 3 p.m. yesterday. By 6 p.m., they still had not arrived and we had things to do. I called and apparently this unmarried couple had broken up two-weeks ago and weren't coming. I gently reminded her that if she had called and cancelled two weeks ago, that she would have received most of her deposit back. Now, she forfeits the whole deposit.
Easy money, but it chaffs my hide that she wasn't even planning on calling to tell us they weren't coming. I could have rented that room several times over! It's too bad that she didn't buy any packages.

That's generous of you. Many would charge the whole first night, or the whole stay, for a no-show!

If there was a big blowout kind of breakup, it truly might have been the last thing on her/his mind. I'm sorry for the no show, glad you gave a 'gentle reminder' ... one of them ought to have called.

The deposit is one whole night.....not generous at all. Actually, for a no-show we charge the full reservation fee no matter how many nights the booked.

Good! I also do a full reservation because it could be a package....
