I thought I was being nice.

I googled Winstar. That’s a hotel-casino. Wouldn’t most players stay at the hotel/inn? Their prices are only $89/night.

The caravan is staying at the casino.

I thought they were camping at Micheles.

13000 are going to Michele’s. The other 1000 are headed to the casino. They are going to need a drink.

So will Michele.

You’re quoting prices for rooms in Gainesville. And yes, most people want a room near the Casino. But most people also want to be treated like royalty with the comforts of home.
There are only 3 hotels near Winstar. The Casino Hotel rates are from 99 and up on weekdays. On weekends the rates start at 189 and go to 429. The other 2 hotels start at 160. Airbnb is always less expensive so my rates will be between 99 and 169 for standard rooms and 169 to 400 for the master. Regardless what I charge, I only need to fill the rooms 8 days a month to cover the expenses. The weekends will more than cover that.
Airbnb is still very new but people do seem to gravitate toward it. People like the privacy it offers and many like the small circle of guests it allows them to mingle with over a glass of wine.

How would you market it?
