I am also afraid of it and what it can do to my reservation calendar – After working my reservations on a desk calendar for the last 17 years, extremely low tech, I have been busy implementing an online reservation system.
A lot of would-be-guests have complained that we don’t have an availability calendar on the website. My webmaster said that I did not only want an availability calendar but that I would want, whether I know it or not, an honest to goodness 21 century online thing.
So, that’s what has kept me busy for the last week and some days. I am trying it (haven’t committed to it yet) because this means that everyone out there in cyberspace can now make reservations and I cannot screen new guests to make sure they all fit in here or if they would be better off at my competition. Ergo, it remains to be seen if this is for us or not
Tell me how you feel about making a reservation via computer at a small mom and pop place
Oh and please someone take a moment and check it out. http://www.wayfarerlodgings.com/cottages and first refresh the page
Do you like the way it behaves, does it look right, do you like the pictures/slideshows?
Any critique is welcome (I think I mean it)
Online reservations do not mean that you cannot call me to make a reservation. I love talking to you! It’s only suppose to support me
