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.

For active dogs a visit to this part of the world is going to be a memorable one.  There are some great walks in and around Santa Fe – just remember to take some water with you when the temperatures are a little higher and to clean up after your pet.

Santa Fe is home to a few pet-friendly attractions so why not consider adding one or two of these to your itinerary?

Hyde Memorial State Park is open around the clock and dogs are welcome if they are kept on a leash.  It costs nothing to take your dog into the park so it is a great place to visit if you are on a tight budget.   Alternatively you can head over to the State Capitol Grounds.  Again, dogs have to be kept on a leash but this is a great place to explore.

For dogs that love to be off-leash there is the Santa Fe Animal Shelter Dog Park.  This is a fenced area of the park where there are also separate areas for smaller dogs.  Perfect for meeting other dog walkers.  There is also an off-leash dog area at the Frank Ortiz Park.  This is a great place for those who enjoy walking as there are plenty of walking trails here for you to enjoy.

With so many alternatives to taking your pet with you, you might be wondering why you wouldn’t just find a kennel or your pet.  For some people the separation from their pets means that they spend their entire vacation just worrying about them and the pets can also suffer from separation anxiety.  You can cancel all of this out just by bringing your pet with you.

If Santa Fe is on your list for consideration for your next vacation just call us to find out availability on our pet-friendly lodging for you and your dog/cat.  Booking in advance is important as we have limited rooms available specifically for pets.  Contact us for more information and check out our specials today!
