The goal of BedandBreakfast.com is to promote B&Bs by making it easy for inngoers to locate unique accommodations for leisure and business travel. BedandBreakfast.com reserves the sole right to decide which properties may or may not be listed on the BedandBreakfast.com website, including the right to request licensing information.

BedandBreakfast.com is a leading Internet marketing site for small, unique properties. In the United States, the terms bed and breakfast, B&B, and inn encompass a broad range of lodging options, from private homes with two or three guest rooms, to country inns with 20 or more guest rooms and full-service restaurants, to big city B&Bs with guest rooms that have en suite kitchens stocked with breakfast foods, to small historic hotels. Whatever they are called, most properties share these qualities, although there are exceptions:
- Independent; not part of a chain
- Individually decorated rooms
- Common area (living room, lounge, salon) where guests can gather
- Breakfast is served
Because there is no single universal word for B&B, inn, or innkeeper, here are our definitions:
- "Inn is the general term that BedandBreakfast.com uses to mean B&Bs, gites, inns, guest rooms, etc."
- "Innkeeper is the general term that BedandBreakfast.com uses to mean the owner or person who runs a B&B, gite, inn, guest room, etc."
