This is a tough economy for all and anyone in the travel and tourism business knows the pain likely more than any other industry. I am a cabin owner and know many many other owners and this economy is difficult at best at times.
Guests want the very best deal possible and I for one as an owner and traveler myself appreciate a good deal. Many of the folks I know who are cabin owners are teachers, farmers, trades folks, small business owners and some are making choices as to what to offer, what to cut, what "amenities" are just too expensive given the pressure to lower rates given demand is low and the cabin inventory is high.
So those who travel and prefer to stay in private vacation homes wheather here in the Smokles or at the beach, How important is wifi? Anyone with a DSL or cable modem in their own homes know this adds up to $1,000 or more a year in costs or a mortage payment.
For me, I have a Droid and wifi is becoming less and less of a need. I tend to think with the proliferation of smart phones, ipads and the like, wifi will be obselete in a few short years.
What do you all think?
