They absolutely NAILED the stereotype that I referred to in my blog entry called Romantic Getaways: 4 Ways to Pick the Perfect Inn or B&B.

In the entry I stated that 97% of the traveling public had never stayed in an inn or b&b….and never will.   Why?   Afraid of the above.

So to prove that most (and notice I said most) b&bs live in the modern age and provide guests at least what they hope to find in a hotel (good beds, private bathrooms, satisfying breakfasts, cleanliness, Wi-Fi, and on….), the Professional Association of Innkeepers has created a new website called BetterWaytoStay.comCheck it out.
