Difference Between a Hotel and a Bed and Breakfast

Hotels and bed and breakfasts have become competitive to each other over the years to travelers. Determining what one to stay at for your next vacation can be hard, but if you know what makes each one different, you can make a decision. Each one offers amenities and it’s all based on what your preferences are.

Both bed and breakfasts in addition to hotels can offer their guests various specials and amenities. These advantages and amenities can be beneficial to some and not to others and it all is based on your wants and needs for your vacation. For larger groups, you will find that a hotel is going to be the best place for your lodging. For others, a bed and breakfast is great if you are looking for that home away from home atmosphere.

Damage to Your Pocketbook

A hotel and a bed and breakfast can sometimes be priced similarly. A B&B is priced the same as a mid-range hotel. This is because they offer a more personalized and intimate setting. They are also often located in secluded destinations allowing for a more intimate and memorable experience. If they are located in spots that are popular for traveling, you may see rates that are higher.

Hotels can lodge more people and therefore their rates may be lower. They do not offer a personalized experience and the hotel itself could be dirty or not well maintained. Hotels can also vary in price depending on what time of year it is.

Amenities AvailableWhat's the Difference Between a Hotel and a Bed and Breakfast?

As far as amenities, a bed and breakfast in addition to a hotel can offer great amenities to its guests. A hotel is going to offer more updated amenities, and bed and breakfasts offer more personalized and special amenities that you would not find with a hotel.

A few of the many amenities you will see in a hotel include:
• Jacuzzi/pool/hot tub
• Gym
• Concierge services
• Laundry facilities
• Free WiFi
• Maid service
• Room service

Some of the amenities you can expect to find with a bed and breakfast include:
• Wine tasting trips
• Cookies on your pillows
• Picnic lunches
• Fresh flowers in your room
• Home cooked meals
• Homemade truffles on pillows

When you stay at a bed and breakfast, you may also find some of the more mainstream amenities. This just can all depend on where you are staying and what the owners decide to offer guests.

If you like a more personalized vacation, a hotel is not the place for you as the staff is focused on other things other than customer satisfaction. Bed and breakfasts are smaller therefore you have more catered service and warmer meals. Rooms are also decorated in a B&B and hotels are plainer unless you are staying in 5 star hotels. In the end, both places are great for your vacation and each one has its own benefits. Take the time to research and think about what you want.
