Considering Airbnb or VRBO style home sharing?
Think about it: Hotels are licensed and inspected by the Health Department. These inspections cover pools, spas, guest rooms, and food facilities! Is that true of the AirBnb or VRBO-style, probably not. Hotels keep life safety systems up to date and operational. Hotel Housekeepers are professionals and are trained to watch for and spot problems like bed bugs. AirBnb or VRBO-style, probably not. Security? How many "keys" are out there? Modern hotel locks are re-keyed by each new guest key applied! Airbnb VRBO-style, not likely.
