Innkeeper Information

B&B’s for Vets

All innkeepers are invited to participate in the 2017 B&Bs for Vets program by offering a minimum of one room for one night and totally free to veterans and active military.  Innkeepers do not need to be members of AIHP to participate.  The program is open to every innkeeper. Many innkeepers will offer more than one room which is encouraged. Here are some considerations:

  • Because of where the holiday falls, we are asking innkeepers to give their free rooms away on November 9, 10 or 11, 2017 (innkeeper’s choice of dates).
  • To participate, we ask you to email your offer and contact information along with one photo and a 250-character description of the inn to our webmaster at ddapson@coppermoonmedia.com. When your offer is live on the website, Deborah will email you to let you know your offer is live. Save her email and then respond back to her when your rooms are filled and Deborah will indicate your rooms are filled on the website.
  • If you’ve already filled your rooms for the 2017 B&Bs for Vets program, please send your information anyway, and simply indicate that your rooms are filled. That way your inn/B&B will still be listed on the site as a participant, and will add to the total number of inns/B&Bs participating. This is important to give the program credibility.

B&Bs for Vets is coordinated and organized by the Association of Independent Hospitality Professionals (AIHP). The Association of Independent Hospitality Professionals (AIHP) is a non-profit organization established by its members to enhance the small independent hospitality industry.   As an organization AIHP will lead the charge to elevate the awareness and importance of independent small lodging owners by providing collaborative networking opportunities, strong advocacy efforts on issues critical to our industry, compelling professional development opportunities and events, and promoting progressive business practices.

Thank you for your participation in the 2017 B&Bs for Vets program.

What if I want to offer discounted rooms in addition to the free rooms I plan to include in the promotion?

To participate in the 2017 B&Bs for Vets program, you must offer at least one free room to an active or retired member of the military with no strings attached (no buy one/get one, etc.).  After you make one free room available, if you wish to discount additional rooms you may do so. BandBsforVets.org will help promote both your free room and additional offers for veterans during the Veteran’s Day promotion.

What if I want to restrict free rooms to active military only?

To participate in the 2017 B&Bs for Vets program, you must offer at least one free room to an active or retired member of the military with no strings attached (no buy one/get one, etc.).  After you make one free room available, if you wish to discount additional rooms you may do so. BandBsforVets.org will help promote both your free room and additional offers for veterans during the Veteran’s Day promotion.

Can we ask for a credit card when they reserve?

Yes! We encourage you to make your cancellation policy very clear and take a credit card which can be charged if the veteran is a no-show.  You must, however, inform the veteran in writing of your cancellation policy, and make it clear that no shows will take a room away from another deserving vet.

Once my rooms are filled, can I indicate on the AIHP list that I’m full?

Yes, we’ll be able to indicate that your rooms have filled on the AIHP list. Simply email a message to ddapson@coppermoonmedia.com asking her to indicate that you are full on the website.

What are the acceptable military IDs for veterans?

  • Active Duty
  • Retired
