A bed and breakfast inn is an absolute great option if you are looking for a place to stay during a romantic weekend, honeymoon or when you just want to feel pampered and spoiled. In most cases, these inns are very nice because they often have a personal touch in more ways than standard motels and hotels. The inn is well-known to have one on a service and good breakfast. Having been to different B & B Inns throughout the country, I'm still disappointed as I have always enjoyed the short stays at the Inn. Some of these were very small and only had one or two rooms while others were larger. One thing I can say for sure is that they all had one thing in common and there was a friendly and warm service from polite staff. Who did everything to make my stay a good experience.
What to Expect
It is advisable to always ask questions about room specifications such as number of beds and room size when booking. At times, a "single" can refer to a single bed single or a room with a double bed. A "double" can refer to a double bed or two single beds.
The bathrooms can range from a small room with only a shower, toilet and sink to two separate rooms with separate shower and toilet. In many cases, the reason for these often strange configurations is the fact that some inns are old homes that are turned in and some do not have indoor plumbing, and therefore these were just added as space was created. In some cases you will find an inn with shared bathroom and for those who do not like to share; It could have been the extra fee to have a room that has its own built-in bathroom.
In most cases, you will not find telephone or TV facilities in traditional bed and breakfast inns. Some usually have these facilities in a central area where they are available to all guests. In today's technology-driven world it can not be very uncomfortable, as many people own smart phones and travel with their laptops.
One of the benefits of staying at bed and breakfast inn is the food. This is mainly due to the fact that in most cases they have very fresh food, from muffins, eggs and equal fruit. The inn is proud that they are able to offer the freshest meals that are homemade in style. It is a matter of urgency to make sure that the inn you offer in your kind of favorite food, be it full breakfast, which may include bacon, eggs, pancakes or french toast or even a continental breakfast (cereal, coffee, pastries) .
You may need to ask questions about payment when booking, but most bed and breakfast inns will accept cash and any major credit card. There is always a chance that they do not accept checks or any credit card so it's always good to ask in advance.
For cancellations and deposits, you will find that some inns require at least one night stay for one night. In some cases, you may lose your deposit if you cancel before your stay. Make sure you are well informed about policies regarding this issue when making reservations. There is also a policy on some inns that may require you to book more than one night on weekends.
It's always good to also ask about age restrictions that may apply if you travel with children. Some inns prefer to have older children as guests as opposed to youngger children who can be very noisy.
Animals: Most B & B's can not tolerate pets, but a few may be okay with some small and well behaved pets.
Smoking: Most bed and breakfast rooms have anti-smoking policies in their promises and in some cases even charge guest credit cards an additional fee for cleaning cases if they detect smoke in your room.
A B & B can make your travel experience truly relaxing and unique while giving you the home feeling. Whether you are traveling for business or leisure, consider giving these B & B a try.
