After much discussion and organization we have implemented our own WC Lodging QR Code systems! Content controlled in real time.
Should the blanket be draped on the couch or put away?
Our WC Lodging family of homes has expanded and although our AMAZING housekeeping team has always had a reference checklist it no longer seemed relevant to the intricacies of our individual properties. Each house has a
Housekeeping closet and each Housekeeping closet now has a unique QR code which, when scanned, will take the assigned housekeeper to a set of customized notes for the respective property and PHOTOS on how it should be left for a guest. New housekeeper? No problem! Consistency matters.
Fires, Power Outages, Water Shutoffs, Maintenance Appointment Guests are consistently grateful for our clear communication and concern for their comfort but we wanted to take it even further. Your home’s house binder has been updated to include a cover page with a unique QR code specific to the house. PGE scheduled a shutoff? It’s there. The new ignitor for the bbq is still on order and it needs to be lit manually? It’s there too. Guests will also be able to view an electronic version of the property’s binder along with exciting local events!

- Reservations at pet-friendly homes are, on average, over 10% longer than those at homes that aren’t pet-friendly.
- Guests’ spending on pet-friendly vacation rentals has increased by 20% yr over yr.

future guests and damage.
In short, income wise it’s definitely worth it. Wear and Tear Wise? If you’re
uncomfortable with a firm “yes”, let’s continue take it one inquiry at a time.
