Let your guests check-in and pick up keys by self-servicing software.
Some hosts try to make guests feel at home by greeting them in person, but with all of the other responsibilities you have as a host or property manager, along with occasional hiccups like flight delays and heavy traffic, being there to meet your guests isn’t always feasible.
Also, people don’t often have a lot of interest in meeting strangers, especially when they’re fresh off a plane or road trip. Most guests would be more than happy to let themselves into your properties without having to make small talk.
Instead of letting this worry you, ensure you have a system in place to fine-tune your check-in/check-out process and make things easier for you and your guests.
