    Reasons to Stay at a Bed and Breakfast

     Exploring a new city is a great deal of fun, especially when coupled with a great accommodation experience. Often times, individuals have a hard time picking between all the possible options, and it makes sense as the sheer amount of them is overwhelming. One of these options, bed and breakfasts for example, has gained more and more popularity in the recent years, and for good reasons.  

    Value

    Comparing, for instance, staying at a historic bed and breakfast in Charleston and staying at a decent hotel; the cost one will have to pay is often quite a bit higher for the latter option. Indeed, rooms at decent hotels can be quite expensive, and they are usually small. Food usually costs more when it comes to hotel dining, which means one will have to pay even more during their stay. On the other hand, a historic bed and breakfast in Charleston usually provides lots of great amenities for little to no extra cost. Obviously, breakfast is included in the price, as the name so clearly suggests, but there are usually other extras, such as snacks and free parking.

    One of a Kind Rooms

    Every single room in a bed and breakfast is decorated individually, which means that no two rooms are alike. This is great for those looking to have a very distinct experience. It is even a bigger bonus if one travels in a group, since they can check out how different their room is from the rest of the group’s. Not only this, but depending on the exact location of the accommodation, one may be able to enjoy an even more unique experience, such as seeing what life on a farm is like.

    History

    In many cases, these accommodations come with a very rich history. If one chooses to stay in a historic bed and breakfast in Charleston, they should ask about the building and its history. While this doesn’t have a direct effect on one’s stay, it does add an air of culture and uniqueness that very few hotels would be capable to match.

    Picking between all the different accommodations available out there is difficult. Even choosing one from a certain group is hard work, because of the sheer amount of them. However, bed and breakfasts have some advantages that other types do not, such as a great bang for one’s buck and a more individualized experience. As such, if one doesn’t want to be just another one of the hundreds of tourists who sleep in rooms that are pretty much all the same, having a look at the bed and breakfasts available in the area is a great idea.
