Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As innkeepers, Hotch (who is also author of How To Start a Business--and Succeed , Stackpole, 1991) and Glassman (who conducts innkeeping workshops) know their business. They offer glimpses into other owners' views and advice via quotes gathered by a survey. While this work covers the gamut of concerns for the potential innkeeper (acquiring the inn, handling finances, planning for legal and insurance needs, promoting the business, and taking care of guests), it covers these concerns to varying degrees. Repetition of thoughts and statements could be distracting and construed as condescending by some readers, especially if they already have familiarity with the innkeeping business. Still, this is a good basic practical guide for public library collections.-- Margaret B. Bartlett, Rochester Inst. of Technology, N.Y.
