New Study Shows Increased Interest in Inns and B &B's

News Select Registry – July 12, 2011

A recent study released by Ypartnership and the Harrison Group indicated that nearly 8 out 10 leisure travelers expressed an interest in staying in an Inn or B & B in the next year.  This is exciting news to us and affirms why we exist.  Select Registry is your gateway to an unforgettable travel experience.

According to the study,  leisure travelers who express interest in staying at a B&B or inn on a future trip, the home-like ambiance and amenities they expect to find in these properties are the primary motivators. The majority of survey respondents cited comfortable beds/linens (92 percent), friendly staff (91 percent), complimentary, fresh-made breakfast (88percent), free time to relax and unwind (87 percent) and knowledgeable innkeepers (80percent) as desirable attributes of B&Bs. Other aspects include the opportunity to taste different or unusual cuisines (68 percent), free Wi-Fi availability (67 percent), romantic ambiance (63 percent), distinctive theme or atmosphere (59 percent), unique architecture (55 percent) and the ability to reserve a specific room with unique décor (53percent). Two in five travelers are eager to socialize with other interesting guests (41 percent).
