Re: Guest Rooms - Holiday Demand Conflicts - Ideas for Fairness?

Hello Teresa,

We have developed a guest room reservations policy, including a recent revision that we did just now. If you'd like the details, please let me know.

In a nutshell, in each quarter (three-month) period of the year everyone starts out as low-use and can reserve well in advance. When a given household makes a certain number of reservations in the quarter, they become high-use for the remainder of the quarter and can only reserve two weeks in advance. The reservations themselves are first-come-first-served.

Hello CoHo-L,
I searched the archives and only found: first come, first served, then 
negotiate for this issue.

Has anyone had multiple requests for using your Guest Rooms for visiting 
family/friends over multiple year holiday seasons and found a way to mitigate 
conflict fairly on high demand weeks/weekends?
We only started our CoHo community in December and the requests are coming in 
and overlaps and conflicts are already tentatively there.
Any suggestions on length of time ahead to firm up reservations as well since 
that is important to getting the cheapest flights.

Any ideas and experiences greatly appreciated!
