We give free internet to our standard/deluxe/unit rooms but if they book a budget room and want WI-Fi we charge them $10 per stay. It costs us nothing either as its the same line etc as for the motel, speed is not exceptional but it no complaints.
I am with Tiddywazza, if you don't offer free Wi-Fi and free Foxtel, guests will go elsewhere.
We unfortunately aren't the only motel in the area! and yes there is one operator in particular who is screwing everybody down, not just us little guys!! He has broken the unwritten/unspoken agreement regarding sandwich boards!! No ethics!!! This was one of the reasons i asked about motels association, so perhaps this could be something that was brought up at a gathering!! Sorry Mick, this should be in the other forum!!
