I have noticed that everyone who wrote to the editor about the “tourism board” and the innkeeper’s tax was all for it. I have a different point of view.
My husband and I travel a lot. We hate to go to hotels and find out that our $79 price turns into $95, or a $110 room is really $130 with the tax.
In every hotel we stay in they have brochures from companies in the area. I know the innkeepers at the hotels here in Johnson County would be glad to put company brochures in a conspicuous area for their customers. It is up to each business to provide their own brochures.
