There are over 250 Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast establishments, offering everything from the charm of a two or three room residence to the luxurious splendor of an inn that can house up to fifty people. But whichever end of the scale youâ??re looking at, there are a number of tips that will help you when booking your Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast stay.
1.Book last minute and ask for a deal. Being mostly small Mom and Pop establishments, a typical Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast will really feel the loss of an unsold room. So the closer they get to a particular date, the more willing they are to make a deal. Maybe itâ??s 40% off the first night of your stay, or half-price on the second, or perhaps a free bottle of wine at check-in. Of course, the later you leave it, the greater the risk of not finding any room at all. But as long as youâ??re flexible in your travel plans, the best deals are to be had at the last minute.
2.Donâ??t count on the official photos to tell the whole story. Cape Cod has long been a magnet for artists, including some wonderful photographers. And many of them make a living taking photographs for Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast websites. A great photographer can make an ordinary building look much more beautiful than it really is. Try and find a few online snapshots taken by â??ordinaryâ? folks that will give you a more realistic idea of what a place looks like.
3.Ask about the other guests. In a tough travel economy, many Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast owners are reaching out to clientele they would previously have shied away from. Some are going after business clients and selling themselves as an ideal spot for meetings. Others might be targeting wedding parties, while others still might be marketing themselves for the first time to families with children. None of these is necessarily bad, but if youâ??re staying in a Bed and Breakfast specifically to get away from people chatting on their cell phones in the sitting room, for example, it may be a good idea to ask when you book if there are any business meetings going on during your stay.
4.Be considerate of other guests. The other side of that coin is to ask yourself if youâ??re the right kind of guests for a Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast. If you like to go out clubbing to the wee hours, you may not endear yourselves to either the innkeeper of the other guests when you have to bang on the door to be let in at 2:00am. Perhaps it would be better for all concerned if you stayed at a hotel, no matter how much you want to sleep in a four-poster bed.
5.Speak up if you are unhappy, and do it early. Innkeepers would much rather you bring any issues you have to their attention than leave unhappy. If a bed is uncomfortable or a room is not as private as you had hoped, say something straight away. Not only are you more likely to have an enjoyable stay, but itâ??s only fair to give the innkeeper a chance to correct your issue. If you wait until youâ??re checking out before you complain about something, it looks like youâ??re just angling for a refund rather than genuinely looking for a solution to your problem.
Cape Cod offers something for every type of bed and breakfast traveler. These tips will help you choose the right one for you.
