I am the owner of the Monarch Motel
in Cheboygan, MI. Just wanted to let everyone know that I am now accepting BitCoins for rooms at the motel. Rates will be based on the current average trade value on TradeHill.com (mainly because that is where my trading account is located).
Prices do include an 8% Tax (6% state tax, 2% local tax)
, which we pay in regular USD to keep everything legal with the local paper-based-money-peeps. The trade value used is at the time of check-in OR at the time of pre-payment.
If you or your BitCoin using friends or family plan a trip to Northern Michigan in the future, please consider the Monarch Motel
as your BitCoin-accepting lodging destination.
EDIT: Actually, scratch the tax. We will eat that cost ourselves for any and all guests who pay for their stay with BitCoins.
We are a small, 12 room, family run motel, not some large corporation or chain motel. We do what we must because we can, just like Aperture Labs.
