A GOOD READ
CURRENT STR ECONOMICS
Unfortunately the Short term rental market- along with many other markets- has slowed down significantly. WC Lodging’s portfolio has continued to have strong demand, particularly in the ‘last minute booking’ arena, but to sustain this demand more aggressive pricing has been necessary. If you have a minimum nightly rate requirement please take a moment to email us your rate parameters. In the meantime, PriceLabs and I will continue to work together to make your listing as competitive and desirable as possible in this changing market.

WHY SUSTAINABLE TRAVEL MATTERS

PARTING WAYS WITH MOORE HVAC
Maybe it’s the labor shortage or perhaps the company has simply grown larger than its model can handle, but after 10 years of loyalty WC Lodging is parting ways with Moore. The influx of untrained technicians, an inefficient appointment process combined with virtually no availability has proven our relationship with them to be more costly than beneficial. All memberships have been cancelled (as of Dec 2022) and Monaco Mechanical will be our new go to for all HVAC matters. As always, feel free to reach out with questions/concerns.
