Graceland offers shuttle services for those who are in wheelchairs or scooters by providing a shuttle with a lift (to lift the chair) for the tour only. If you bring your scooter, you will need to take a seat in the shuttle rather than remaining in the scooter due to safety concerns. Graceland does not provide a shuttle service to hotels or around the city.All rooms that are toured in the Graceland Mansion are wheelchair accessible except for two basement rooms, which require going up and down stairs to reach them. If the guest who is in the wheelchair can walk, they will be able to leave their chair, visit both rooms, and then get back in their chair for the rest of the tour. If the guest cannot walk, there is an alternate route (instead of the stairs) to complete the house part of the tour. There are photos and a TV monitor that shows what the two basement rooms, the TV room and the pool room, look like for those guests who cannot view them in person.All areas of Elvis Presley's Memphis are wheelchair accessible.The Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II airplanes are not wheelchair accessible.Graceland highly recommends that you bring your own wheelchair or scooter if at all possible. Graceland does have a limited number of wheelchairs for the mansion portion of the tour only, but these wheelchairs are on a first-come, first-served basis. Graceland does not have wheelchairs for the Elvis Presley's Memphis attractions, shops and restaurants.
I have received a notice from my provider, Suddenlink about illegal use of my home Internet. I have freely given my server and password information to guests to use - but no more! My service provider has issued a warning and offered 2 specific dates where illegal copies of movies (not pornographic, unless you consider Kung Fu Panda pornographic!!) were downloaded when 2 different guests stayed in my Airbnb room.
Beginning today, I will add a warning to my House Rules and posted in the room, but I also have one other idea. I think I will not offer the WiFi password until guests confirm they understand the house policy. I am NOT a fan of many restrictions on my guests and doing anything that could be construed as negative, but I am very concerned about the illegal use of my home Internet.
Your house, your rules. Before booking, the guests are asked to read and agree to follow your House Rules. You can cancel the reservation if the guests violate them. I put in a section of the House Rules like this.
Peer-to-peer (for example bit torrent) and downloads of copyrighted material are strictly forbidden by German law and lawyers actively monitor these activities in Germany. Guests are fully responsible for any illegal uploading or downloading of content and for other illegal activities. By agreeing to the House Rules, you agree to not perform any illegal activities using my internet connection. Any copyright infringement by guest is subject to release of guests information to copyright holder.
I came to this topic because I was getting a "Walled Garden Error Code 5" and could not reset it like I have in the past by turning the modem/router off for 10 minutes, and so I called Suddenlink tech support and the rep told me a DMCA report had been filed against my account. They were able to provide me the date, and the guest who was here at the time admitted that his son downloaded something. All's been reset now and is OK, but SL's "three strikes" policy has me a little nervous because if this continues to happen, I may find myself blacklisted from Suddenlink for 6 months. (And then my only fallback option is CenturyLink's slow-as-molasses 10mbps connection...) The tech told me that if I get "Walled Garden Error Code 10," that's when I'll be on the 6-month suspension. I guess if that happens I'll try to appeal, but for now, I'll just have to cross my fingers and hope my future guests are more law-abiding (or at least use private torrent sites that the movie studios don't monitor...).
I too just experienced guests downloading illegal cable tv shows and violating copyright laws via BIT Torrent over my internet/wifi in my guest house. This can carry a financial fine/penalty and I assume that I would be liable.
When I had to guests who illegally downloaded content, I was notified within hours by my Internet provider. I then spoke directly with the guests and ask them to stop. I then tightened the controls on my Internet, as well as updated my house rules.
Having said that I think we are possibly a bit more fortunate here with our providers. I am on a $60.00 per month plan which gives me unlimited monthly download access plus totally free home phone and calls to anywhere in the world through a VoIP service. That combined with out 2 mobiles phones mean our combined internet/communication bill comes to less than $100.00au per month.
Most guests these days would consider it to be the end of the civilised world if WiFi access was not available so I freely give the password to incoming guests....and I must admit I did have concerns about pirate movie downloads but now that Torrent sites have been blocked I feel much more comfortable. 2b1af7f3a8
