Reasons to Choose a Bed & Breakfast Over a Hotel

Reasons to Choose a Bed & Breakfast Over a Hotel

When you’re in the process of planning a vacation and are doing your research on lodging, why not book a stay at a bed and breakfast?

A B&B is a great alternative to a hotel as it offers a more inviting atmosphere, friendly staff, unique accommodations, and of course, a fresh and delicious breakfast.

Bed and breakfasts often get overlooked as they are considered an expensive option, but that is a common misconception. In many cases, a bed and breakfast will have a similar nightly rate or even be cheaper than a comparable hotel.

Consider a stay at a bed and breakfast for your next trip to have a quaint, relaxing and inviting experience.  

It’s a home away from home

One of the best reasons to stay at a bed and breakfast is for the atmosphere. Bed and breakfasts are warm and inviting and will feel like you never left home.

Whether it be the personalized rooms with traditional bedroom furniture, the variety of amenities available or the friendly owners who can assist with any special requests, a B&B will have everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Delicious, home-cooked breakfast

When it comes to the food offered, a bed and breakfast is the preferred option by a wide margin.

If you want something a little different than the traditional hotel breakfast, most B&Bs will offer gourmet options including fresh fruits and juices, pancakes, waffles, French toast, fresh eggs and other favorites. Better yet, there will be no extra charge for these meals as they are simply a perk of this type of lodging.

A surprisingly affordable option

Although many people assume that bed and breakfasts are more expensive than a hotel, this is not usually the case. While there can certainly be some B&Bs on the pricier side, most are similar in price to hotels, and it is not uncommon to book a B&B for around $150. When you include all the extras you get with a bed and breakfast that price becomes even better.
