4 Reasons You're Not Going to Choose a Hotel This Time

Thursday, March 03, 2016

bed and breakfastIt’s easy to forget you have the option of staying in a bed and breakfast. After all, travel websites like Orbitz often ask you right away -- “Do you want to combine this flight with a hotel?” Before long, you start automatically searching for hotels and motels anywhere you travel.

Thin sheets, subpar breakfast options, and sterile hallways don’t have to be the norm, though, especially if you’re looking for affordable lodging in Buena Vista CO. So, are you going to stay in a bed and breakfast the next time you visit? Here are four reasons why you should.

1. Experience the Local Flavor
Buena Vista has a population of under 5,000, and this charming community has all the quirks of a mountain town you can expect. If all you do is stay in hotel rooms that look the same whether you’re in New York or Honolulu, though, you’re going to miss out on a big part of the local experience.

2. They’re Eager to Help You Out
Hotels are largely impersonal; concierge will never seek you out with recommendations. A bed and breakfast, on the other hand, has a bit of a warmer tone to it. If you’re looking for things to do during the day they’ll have numerous top local recommendations. One site worth seeing is St. Elmo, one of the state’s best preserved ghost towns -- it’s located just 30 minutes away from Buena Vista.

3. A Central Location
How often do you pick a cheap hotel, only to discover it’s off in the middle of nowhere? Our affordable locations are close to everything you need to see, and Buena Vista is known for its wildlife and mountain views. If it’s a hike you’re after, there are numerous peaks here that are over 14,000 feet tall (including mount Princeton, mount Columbia, and more!).

4. Of Course, Breakfast
It may seem obvious that a bed and breakfast offers breakfast, but the point should be underscored. How often have you read that a hotel offers “complimentary breakfast” but all it is, is fountain juice and muffins in a plastic bag? A bed and breakfast will make sure you get a full meal in before an equally full day.
