5 Reasons to Stay at a Bed and Breakfast
With so many lodging options available to travelers, it can be confusing to know where to stay. Hotels, motels, Inns, there is no right or wrong answer. However, with any of these options, you can end up at the wrong place for your travel needs. So why stay at a bed and breakfast Inn? That’s an easy question to answer. In a word – unique. Bed and Breakfast Inns offer a completely different experience when compared to a typical hotel stay. Here are 5 reasons why you will love your stay at a bed and breakfast:
Some hotels may offer you great service, however it really can be hit or miss. These days, staying in a less than 5 star hotel can mean that the only service experience you have as a patron is upon arrival at check in. At a bed and breakfast, your service experience is much more on the concierge level and not on the “call the front desk only if there is a problem” level. At Don Gaspar Inn, our goal is to provide our guests with top-notch service. We do everything we can to make your stay personalized, enjoyable and unforgettable.
That leads us to memorable. Hotel rooms can be very cookie-cutter, even ho-hum. Same room, different hotel. When you stay at a B&B, you will leave with a unique and memorable experience. Do you remember the hotel experience you had five years ago? Me neither. But if you were to ponder the same question for a bed and breakfast stay, you would very likely have a solid recollection of the stay. That’s because the bed and breakfast experience versus a hotel room can be much more personal. When you stay at a B&B, you are not just a room number. You are a guest welcomed into a space that feels like home. An oasis nestled in the middle of historic Santa Fe, the rooms and property at Don Gaspar Inn are far from “cookie-cutter” and offer any guest a unique stay.
The name says it all – bed and breakfast. The most important meal of the day is home cooked and specially prepared to your liking at a bed and breakfast. And it is complimentary. At a hotel, you might get an on-the-go cold breakfast that leaves you hungry a few minutes later. Sometimes you might get lucky with a hot breakfast, but it won’t be personal or made to order. And who knows how long it has been sitting under that heat lamp. But at a bed and breakfast, it’s part of the deal. A home cooked, complimentary breakfast with local flavors is a much better way to fuel your day.
Staying at a B&B is a great way to get some R&R. Many bed and breakfast inns are located in peaceful settings and have beautiful gardens and views to take in. Bed and breakfasts tend to promote peace and quiet and offer a great place to escape from the stresses of everyday life. This is also true at the Don Gaspar Inn. Our grounds feature outdoor sitting areas, lush vegetation, and peaceful surrounds. Here you can relax, unwind, and enjoy beautiful Santa Fe.
Amenities at a hotel can be great, if you feel like ponying up for them. Hotels can nickel and dime you for amenities such as Wi-Fi or breakfast. Save your hard earned cash and enjoy amenities such as free Wi-Fi (and breakfast) at a B&B. At a B&B, we understand that certain amenities are basic necessities for our patrons. And you shouldn’t have to empty your pockets for them. All of our guest suites and rooms have televisions, DVD players, Wi-Fi, microwaves, coffee makers and grinders. We also offer popcorn, fresh-roasted coffee beans, cocoa and a selection of teas. Our sunroom and courtyard are wonderful places to enjoy your Southwest-style breakfast each morning.
