How safe are millions of travelers who visit hotels and motels each year? While most people feel secure within the innkeeping environment, CHOCOLATES FOR THE PILLOWS, NIGHTMARES FOR THE GUESTS reveals, for the first time, that many hotels and motels have failed to provide adequate security and that guests are quite often the victims of violent crime and even brutal attack.

CHOCOLATES FOR THE PILLOWS, NIGHTMARES FOR THE GUESTS shows how much of the industry's efforts have been focused on hiding the prevalence and effects of violent crime and ignore the real problems of safety. The transient nature of travelers, who often carry large amounts of cash and other valuables make them prime targets for crime. The absence of proper deterrence measures and poor structural and landscaping design of hotels and motels creates an atmosphere that attracts criminals.

Prestia not only examines the causes of crimes against travelers, but demonstrates how they can be prevented. The book offers suggestions on what travelers can do to protect themselves. Anyone who travels for business and pleasure or is concerned with the safety of the traveling public will find that this book is must reading
