According to a study by Professional Association of Innkeepers International (PAII) and TripAdvisor in 2009, the main reason travelers DON’T choose B&Bs is because the B&B option doesn’t cross their minds. Additionally, there are long-perpetuated myths about B&B’s that keep people away.
Here’s some myth’s about B&B’s:
“But I’ll have to eat with people I don’t know!”
We deliver a full, hot, 3-course breakfast to your room each morning at your chosen time. We think sharing breakfast with your loved one is a special treat and should be private. You don’t even have to get dressed for breakfast, much less eat with strangers.
“I don’t want to share a bathroom!”
Every suite and cottage at Evening Shade Inn B&B has it’s own private bathroom, complete with a tub/shower combination. Each suite and cottage also has a two-person jacuzzi located outside the bathroom.
“It’s so expensive!”
Actually, when you add up all the extras including complimentary breakfast, snacks, beverages, wi-fi, movies and parking, then compare prices to local hotels in your travel destination, you will find we offer a great value. We don’t raise our rates for festivals, holidays and special events like the hotels and motels do. Our B&B is also exclusive since we only have 8 rooms and you don’t feel you are surrounded by hundreds of other people.
They’re old buildings and I need my wi-fi connection
Convenience and comfort are high priorities for us. All rooms have individual heat and a/c, LCD TV’s, digital cable, DVD players and wireless internet. Our property was built specifically for overnight lodging and each has a long list of luxury amenities you have come to expect.
The purpose of the Better Way To Stay campaign is to promote the B&B option among travelers, to convince those who’ve never tried a B&B to choose the option for their next trip and to convert non-B&B travelers or infrequent B&B guests into regular inn-goers.
We think that Evening Shade Inn Bed and Breakfast is a Better Way to Stay in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Consider us for your next visit to Eureka Springs and let us pamper you.
