Recently I’ve had two guests in a row staying just one night rate me down for Value.
On the one hand, both these guests checked in late in the evening and both checked out by 9:00AM the next day, so they were not here long, and didn’t have a chance to fully appreciate the property. They paid about $100 for a place to shower and sleep, and that price could be considered high.
On the other hand, they chose to stay here, when they could have spent $35 less on other Air rooms in the area. I think they chose my place because it’s a bit nicer than the local competition in this price range. But again, that was their choice.
I’m giving links for my place below (Quiet Retreat), followed by the other places priced lower than mine.
- Do you think my place is fairly priced against the competition?
- Any suggestions for imparting a sense of value for the price for people that are just passing through to shower and sleep?
