What Bed and Breakfasts Are Really Like

Ever wonder why some advertisers and movie producers depict B&Bs as dark, creepy, and haunted?

Unkempt grounds, dark rooms, and zombie innkeepers do make for great TV and film, but you certainly won’t find them in real life. If you’ve ever vacationed at a bed and breakfast or inn, you know the experience is anything but scary (unless the chef runs out of your favorite homemade breakfast rolls…. then run for the hills)!

If you think innkeepers simply keep inns, you’re “inn” for a surprise! Wearing many hats is a phrase innkeepers redefine every day. Running an inn, bed and breakfast, or small boutique hotel is a full-time job with many different responsibilities. Unlike large chain hotels, these smaller properties operate with fewer staff members. Thus, the unique lodging experiences they provide guests is made possible by a small number of dedicated staff.

What you should ask Bed and Breakfasts before booking

Typical number of rooms at a bed and breakfast, inn, or boutique hotelWhenever you stay at a Select Registry bed and breakfast, inn, or small boutique hotel, you’re guaranteed exceptional quality and a unique and authentic lodging experience. Unlike chain hotels, these properties are independently owned and operated, so they operate on a much more personal level.

Take advantage of the size! Because you’re only one of three, ten, or maybe even thirty guests staying at a property, the innkeepers and their staff can personalize your visit in ways chain hotels could never do!
