Ask the Innkeeper is an innteractive series where the innside innkeeper at The Claiborne House B&B answers some innkeeping questions. We can run this series as long as there are questions. We will start with a basic question or one we are always asked and move on to the seedier side of innkeeping.
Question: Why does Google say your B&B is country music themed?
Answer: Because Google says and does whatever it wants. We don't have live music onsite, we aren't decorated in red wine hues, we don't have keyless entry to the guest rooms, and we are a 5 minute walk to the Harvester Performance Center, not 8. Here is a Google map, also from Google themselves to prove it:
We walk to the Harvester quite often, as do our guests. But we are a hilly town, so there is a gradual incline coming back up Claiborne Avenue.
But they got our website right, our phone number right and overall we can't fight city hall so we will leave it as is. We have already corrected other weird listings, so we are actually doing okay with it like that. Google has gleaned key words from dozens of pages on our website and hundreds of blog articles like the one you are reading now.
One time a guest arrived quite under the influence and asked to play naked Twister. Among all the dozens of games in our games cupboard we do have twister, but be assured it has been sanitized thoroughly.
(BTW this is in jest, he never even found the Twister game as he fell asleep on the porch after ordering from Papa Johns.)
