The Lodging Resource Newsletter Issue #12, April 2012

Hello again Lovely Innkeepers!
Late last month there was a fun meme going around and I decided to try to apply it to innkeepers, I got a lot of great comments when I posted it online and a quite a few people suggested the “what customers think I do” should be innkeepers relaxing on a porch with a glass of wine. It would be fun to create a few more of these, so if anyone has additional ideas please pass them along!!!
