This text will help innkeepers minimize accidents and avoid devastating losses.

A must have for anyone in the hotel and motel business, the attorneys who represent them, the attorneys whose clients are injured, and engineers.

You've heard the horror stories: tragic accidents at inns, with ensuing litigation that drives them out of business. Security problems at big-city hotels resulting in expensive lawsuits and horrendous publicity. Could these tragedies happen to you? Have your colleagues or clients already been victims of such devastation? Incidents like these occur far too frequently, largely because innkeeper's liability has been a confusing area of the law...until now.

If you own or manage a hotel or motel, you'll find the 100 pages of checklists useful when evaluating your guests' safety and comfort.

Cornell Quarterly, School of Hotel Administration

The virtue of the author's approach is twofold: (1) to develop awareness of guest disabilities and physical limitations in using the property and (2) in preparing the guest for certain contingencies so that the guest can apply self-protective techniques consistent with her or his own welfare. Overall this book is a timely reminder of the critical but often underrated role that guest safety and security entail, and provides a blueprint of meaningful steps to access them. It is worth including in your management library.
