How nice to finally have an article about B & Bs that is not slamming them!

It's nice but it sounds like it was written by the owner of the place it mentions quite a lot. We need 'real' travel writers saying those things.

I was surprised by the 'sports' slant. Any teams that travel get contracts with hotels. Maybe parents, visitors, referees and the like could stay at a B&B but not the team. And, if it's an qualifying event, the losing team leaves whether they booked for 4 nights for the whole event or not. And they don't expect to pay.

I am totally aware of those facts - because I am in the biz - but it was nice to see something positive. Joe Public has no clue about how it works. It might just click that B & Bs are nice even though it does sound like a commercial for that inn.

That part will take care of itself. At least they were not referred to as some of those other negatives as in people in your face, etc.
