ADA & What You Can Do to Prevent A Lawsuit Over Your Website

Some ADA Requirements Include Coding Photos, Color Contrasts, and More

What Lodging Associations Are Saying About ADA Website Compliance

ADA lawsuits continue to demand the attention of innkeepers. From the California Lodging Association newsletter last week we read:

“Our Most Popular Helpline Question – Unfortunately”

“Sadly, our most numerous Helpline questions start out like this:

“I just got a letter saying that I am being sued because my website is not ADA compliant, what do I do?” At that point all we can do is refer them to an attorney. All kinds of properties, no matter how big or small are subject to these legal entanglements.”

To avoid getting one of these heart-stopping letters, be sure that your website is ADA compliant.

ADA requirements change constantly and that means you need to be constantly checking and updating.

Be Careful Adding Photos – Something as simple as adding a photo (without an ALT tag) could put your site out of compliance!

In a 2016 article family owned bed and breakfasts were not required to have their Websites readable by the disabled.

That has all changed and Bed & Breakfasts now seem to be a favorite target.

Requirements can be researched here. Or read our recent article with 8 requirements. It’s a lot cheaper to make adjustments to your website than it is to go through a lawsuit.

Take care of this situation now and head off any ugly problems. Contact Diane to run an audit on your site for ADA compliance and she will discuss the results and what you need to do.

What We Heard From Innkeepers About ADA

Sister’s Motel Sued – “BTW…I don’t think I told you but my sister who owns a motel recently got sued for her website not being ADA compliant…just thought I’d share that with you.” NY owner

Small Inn But Served With a Lawsuit  “As you are aware my little Inn, and several hotels/motels in the area, have been served with lawsuits declaring that the websites are not ADA compliant.”

Photo Tagging for ADA “Thank you for your email on Photo Tagging – that is a new Google/ADA requirement. Will you do that for us?” Lee, owner

So Pleasant – “This whole experience has been so positive and so different from my last website building experience. It has been so pleasant.” Dorothy, owner, Valley Springs Farm

Took Only A Few Days To Address the Issue   “I contacted Diane Ringler at ILOVEINNs and within just a few days our website pages and photos that required ADA fixes were completed.”

This is no joke. “At a minimum, these lawsuits are settling for Thousands of $$$ and the cost of the FIX is minimal.”

Wonderful Job – Website – “If I haven’t said this before, y’all are doing a wonderful job. Don, Texas


Ask For A Review of Your Current Website

We run multiple diagnostic tests to review your website’s fonts, colors, shading, contrast, tabs, links and ease of use to accommodate ADA website requirements. We also run a report to check all the photos and images on your site to ensure they have the appropriate alt tags.

Reports tell you exactly what has to be done to make the site compliant and give you a current score on the site. NOTE: We can also do the fixes outlined in these reports.

We also help with the right policy statement on your site and make sure that you are listing all handicap-friendly features at the inn – if your property is PHYSICALLY compliant.
