    A Truly Professional Approach

    If you're planning to open a bed and breakfast as a hobby or with the notion that "you're not really running a business, you're just making profits in your free time," this is not the book for you. This book covers almost all potential areas that you'll need to know to run a professional B&B, and the level of detail will quickly dissuade anyone who isn't serious. That having been said, anyone who does want to run a professional bed and breakfast will find the information invaluable. The forms included on the enclosed CD pay for the book themselves--everything from employment applications to inventory forms, invoices, standard recipe cards, and kitchen safety inspection forms. The book covers all stages of the planning and setup process, including business plans, marketing and promotion, safety, and employees. Particularly useful is the section on marketing, something that most B&Bs that I've known tend to ignore. With a little creativity (and there are lots of suggestions... 5/5 DeAnna Knippling "Word Nerd" (Colorado Springs, CO United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: How to Open a Financially Successful Bed & Breakfast or Small Hotel: With Companion CD-ROM (Paperback) If you're planning to open a bed and breakfast as a hobby or with the notion that "you're not really running a business, you're just making profits in your free time," this is not the book for you.

    Very Helpful

    This book is absolutely great. It offers a realistic look into what it would be like to own a bed and breakfast. I assumed correctly that it would be a labor intensive gig, but the book pointed out so many things that I had never thought about - such as serving breakfast may require special licensing in my state/city.This book is perfect for anyone thinking about owning and operating their own B&B. From room decorating to recipes from other B&B's, "How to Open a Financially Successful Bed and Breakfast or Small Hotel" seems to address everything a new owner would need to know, as well as offers tips on how to renovate and update existing bed and breakfasts. It offers a number of resources to make sure you are in compliance with you state and local codes, as well as tips on how to get financing for buying such a place.There is a comprehensive guide that will tell anyone not current on the etiquette of meal service the appropriate way to set a table, serve... 5/5 Brandi M.

    For anyone contemplating purchasing or starting your own B&B

    0 5/5 JEFFREY F HOUSTON (PALM SPRINGS, CA United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Running a Bed and Breakfast (Paperback) As a former Inn owner I found the book extremely informative. I actually purchased the book as a gift for a friend who is opening a Bed N Breakfast. I was very impressed with the wide range of topics covered. Such as buying in bulk, reservation scripts, cancellation policys, when a laundry service makes sense, hiring employees, and the "do you have what it takes to run a B&B test". I could have saved a lot of time and money if this book had been available when I was first starting out. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 24, 2001

    Best Bed & Breakfast Book

    0 5/5 "sklarbeth" (Vail, Colorado United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Running a Bed and Breakfast (Paperback) If you are considering purchasing a B&B, this book is an absolute essential. Clever and concise, the book covers a broad spectrum of topics. Everything from an example of a typical innkeeper's day to a discussion of tax-writeoff's is addressed. The experience and vision of Mr. Park Davis is invaluable, particularly in chapters involving operational issues such as marketing strategies, budget planning, and "expecting the unexpected." After having read many "How To..." B&B books, this book truly outshines all others as the definitive guide for owning and running a Bed & Breakfast. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 18, 2004
