Questions About Portland B&Bs
Why stay in a bed and breakfast?
Portland bed and breakfasts offer an opportunity to get a local’s perspective. These lodging options also offer modern amenities in a comfortable, unique space. And never underestimate the bed and breakfast owner’s ability to give insider information on the city’s best restaurants
Is a B&B the same as an Airbnb?
While these two options may sound the same, the experience is usually quite different. A traditional bed and breakfast or B&B usually serves a home-cooked morning meal, whereas most Airbnb stays do not offer breakfast. There are exceptions to this rule. Airbnb also gives hundreds of stay options that range in type (apartments, guesthouses, single bedrooms). B&Bs tend to only offer guestrooms or larger suites within a single home.
What kind of amenities can I expect when I book a B&B in Portland?
While the amenities will vary from place to place, most Portland bed and breakfasts offer complimentary wifi, coffee and tea, breakfast and snacks, TV, hair dryers and occasionally, parking, laundry and other guest services. Check each B&B’s website to see the specifics and learn more.
