In your experience, do you find one-night guests to be better, worse, or the same in terms of courtesy, following house rules, etc.?
In my (newbie) experience, they are the guest who haven’t felt “worth it,” even with the cleaning fee. These are the guests who don’t follow house rules, clean out supplies, dock my rating because they didn’t read the check-in instructions, don’t leave a review, or block off one night of a weekend and cancel.
I’ve only been hosting for a few months, so I’m not ready to limit my guests to 2+ night stays (one-nighters do help fill-in the calendar in between other guests), but I wish AirBnB had a calendar setting to disallow one night stays being booked far out. Then, I could fill my calendar far out with 2+ night stays, and fill in any gaps with one-night stays as it gets closer to a given date.
Then again, I have a friend nearby who hosts a room in her house (like I do) who says her one-night guests are some of her best.
What is your take? I know some of you cater more towards airport layovers and the like, so you probably are geared more towards one-night stays.
