Why Stay at a Bed and Breakfast Rather than a Hotel?

Why opt to stay in a bed and breakfast rather than in a large hotel?  The website http://www.bedandbreakfast.com/info/trav discusses the many reasons travelers opt for smaller, independent inns and bed and breakfasts.

A Bed and Breakfast Offers Value

The article points out that hotels usually do not offer a big bang for your buck.  The rooms can be small, you may pay for parking, and if there is a free breakfast it typically is a continental breakfast.  Most amenities are available for an extra cost.  At the Buckhorn Inn, you get a comfortable room and free nearby parking.  We offer complimentary Wi-Fi, which has been newly upgraded.  One of the best perks about staying with us is the hearty and delicious breakfast that comes as part of your stay.  You enjoy fresh fruit, juice, and fresh-baked biscuits and sweet breads while you contemplate your choice of entrée.  You may opt for a savory dish, like Country Eggs Benedict, a sweet dish like Bananas Foster French Toast, eggs cooked the way YOU like them with a breakfast meat, or a hearty bowl of oatmeal with delicious optional add-inns.  And while you enjoy that, your mug will be kept filled with robust, regular or decaf coffee or tea.

Unique Rooms

Many people prefer the inns because they like a room with character.  At the Buckhorn Inn you may

choose from several different traditional inn rooms, premier suites, cottages, or guest houses.  Each has its own personality and décor.  Many of our guests find their favorite and always try to book “Cottage 5” or “the Red Room”!

Rich History

Many B&Bs have rich history and stories.  At the Buckhorn Inn, we are proud of our 80-year history of serving guests.  We have tried to keep the original charm and feel of Douglas Bebb’s vision, while providing our guests with the most modern amenities.

Personal Attention

Innkeepers go the extra mile to make sure you feel comfortable and welcome.  Innkeepers John and Lee Mellor provide personal attention and assistance to all their guests.  The bed and breakfast staff are great local experts and can provide you with great advice on what to see and do in the Gatlinburg area.  Part of that personal attention is providing fresh-baked treats in the afternoon and providing a library of good books and DVDs.
