Reno, NV, May 23, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- This business guide, written by an innkeeper for other innkeepers, confronts head-on the serious problems of running an inn and provides solutions to them. But this is not a run-of-the-mill book about innkeeping. Instead, the author offers precise, detailed suggestions on what to do, as well as what not to do. The easy-to-understand lists and outlines save time and offer valuable ideas to busy innkeepers.
Inkeepers’ Key to Success, published by Dog Ear Publishing, aims to teach innkeepers all the ropes of the business, including how to eliminate no-shows and double bookings, set up a housekeeping system, induce guests to stay an extra night, respond in less than a minute to maintenance requests and set up a high-speed breakfast bar. The book also provides an overview of changes that have occurred in accommodations over the last 75 years, such as the length of stays, smoking policies and expectations in service.
Whether innkeepers want to know how many guests should stay in a room to budgeting their business, managing the front desk, keeping rooms and bathrooms stocked and clean to first impressions, this book has it all. Safety concerns, recruiting and keeping staff, security, taxes and insurance all receive detailed attention from the author, who purchased an inn on the Jersey shore when he retired. He and his wife, Jeanne, have operated the inn for 29 years.
