Should You Book an Inn?

If you’re wondering whether or not you should book an inn instead of a hotel, the answer is YES! Of course you should. There’s no need to stay in a cookie cutter hotel if there’s a bed and breakfast near your travel destination.

Truthfully, I can’t think of a reason someone would choose a hotel over an inn. That leads me to assume the reason people don’t choose inns is because they’re unfamiliar with them.

The most common objection I hear is that people assume that inns are more expensive than hotels, but most of the time that’s just not true at all.

What’s the difference between an inn and a hotel?

A hotel is a large building that houses many rooms for lodging. Most of the rooms are identical; there can be several levels with elevators and stairs for you to navigate around the building.

A bed and breakfast, or an inn, is usually inside an actual house and sometimes it can be in a small building. B&Bs only accommodate a small number of guests at one time.

Why should you stop booking hotel rooms?

Unless you love hotels for some reason, you should stop booking them and opt for inns instead because they’re made for comfort and peacefulness.

Every bed and breakfast has its own personality and the people who run them are there to make you feel special; they want your stay to feel as close to home as possible.

With a B&B, the number of rooms available are limited, so you don’t have to worry about anyone causing a ruckus and disrupting your quiet time. People who book inns book them because they want peace and quiet, too.

Additionally, the bedrooms look like actual rooms someone would live in. The beds, pillows, and blankets are not dingy or rough like a lot of bedding you would find in chain hotels.

Some inns even allow pets, so you might be able to bring your furry friend along if you desire.

To sum everything up, booking an inn simply leaves you with a more personal, memorable experience.
