5 Misconceptions About a Bed and Breakfast

When thinking about booking a room at a Santa Fe bed and breakfast, you might be influenced by the common misconceptions about bed and breakfasts in general. Inns and B&Bs are often more comfortable, warmer spaces than the typical hotel or motel.

We are also sharing 5 additional misconceptions that shouldn’t stop you from staying in a beautiful inn at Santa Fe.

  1. No Bathrooms or Privacy

Many of these misconceptions are based on televisions, movies or a previous generations of bed and breakfast accommodations. Today, almost all bed and breakfast rooms have their own bathroom. Often, it might be cozy since it was converted from a closet to a bathroom space, but it will give the guest privacy. If you’re unsure about the bathroom situation, you can call the location. If there’s a shared bathroom, they may have a schedule and routine that ensures everyone has private time in the bath.

  1. Communal Breakfasts

When you book a stay at a bed and breakfast, you might be looking forward to the comfort food provided by the staff. Home-cooked food is one of the best reasons to stay in a B&B, but if the idea of sitting around a table with strangers has you uncomfortable, know that the innkeeper has done this before. They will be experience with making sure the conversation doesn’t lag uncomfortably. It can be an entertaining experience that might feel awkward at first, but might be your favorite part of the stay. If you’d really like to avoid the shared breakfast, the innkeeper will certainly make other arrangements for you.

When it comes to staying at Inn on the Paseo we provide our guests with more than one option when it comes to their dining experience. You can enjoy the privacy that is available within your room without having to share a space. If you decide to dine outside of your room we have multiple tables inside and outside at your disposal. If you feel more comfortable sitting separately from other guests you can enjoy your meal in the patio area. The only time you will find that the outside patio area closed is during the middle of winter or the Inn is full. In which case you may be seated with other guests or you can select one of our many breakfast times.

  1. Married Couples and Family

Some people assume that an inn is full of newlyweds and families. An inn will cater to many different types of occupants including business travelers, single people and groups. A B&B in Santa Fe can cater to all the technology that you need too. If you’re uncertain, it helps to call the location before booking your stay. Our inn at Santa Fe will cater to a variety of guests as long as they are respectful of others during their stay.

  1. Curfews and Odd Policies

This misconception is an outdated concept. When you book your stay, you’re not taking on a room in someone’s home. These places are in business to make travelers comfortable. They’re not worried about when you’ll disturb them by coming in late because they are often in another wing of the location. They will have traditional check-in and check-out times like any hotel.

  1. It’s Expensive

A stay in an inn is comparable with a stay in a great hotel, but we have the charm and care of a place that cares about your stay. A hotel might be an impersonal space with staff who might not care about your comfort but that can’t be said about us. An innkeeper wants to ensure that you are welcomed and cared for when staying with us. Learn why we offer a perfect getaway in Santa Fe.
