After choosing a destination for your vacation, the next problem becomes where to stay. Many people choose hotel chains based on name familiarity and ease, although all you will really get is a place to sleep and nothing more. Many people believe that a bed and breakfast is out of their budget when in fact, a luxury B & B Inn costs the same as a four star hotel.
With a bed and breakfast you receive personalized service and attention, not a number on an invoice. There are many other advantages to a B & B verses a hotel, lets take a look at some:
Your Home Away From Home!
Bed and Breakfast Inns are generally houses that have had their rooms designed to accommodate guests. Each room is decorated with the comfort of the guest in mind and each room has its own personality. There are no generic rooms at these types of inns; they are made to feel like your home away from home.
Gourmet Food Included!
As the name implies, the daily rate of a B & B stay will always include the first, most important meal of the day. While a continental breakfast is often included in chain hotel rates the breakfast at a Bed and Breakfast is always of a significantly higher quality. Innkeepers take great pride in serving well-balanced and tasty meals, allowing guests to enjoy every aspect of their stay. Although every Inn is different, you can generally expect a full breakfast of meat and eggs with fresh baked breads, muffins, fresh juice, fruit and other home made goodies. Some Inns also offer afternoon tea and nightly wine and cheese hours.
Today more then ever, saving expenses on accommodations is essential. B & B Inns are more cost-effective when you consider the entire price of the stay. For example, a Inn may charge what at first seems like expensive nightly fees, but look at some of what is included in that fee: local phone calls, movies, concierge services, parking, and much more. Just these extras at a hotel can add $75.00 or more to your daily bill.
