This category holds general information about Bed and Breakfast establishments in the San Francisco Bay area. County directories, guides or database, for example. Individual Bed and Breakfasts should be submitted to the specific locality where it resides.
AAA classifies a Bed and Breakfast as a limited service lodging type with the following definition;
"Usually smaller establishments emphasizing a more personal relationship between operators and guests, leading to an "at home" feeling. Guest units tend to be individually decorated. Rooms may not include some modern amenities such as television and telephones, and may have a shared bathroom. Usually owner-operated, with a common room or parlor, separate from the innkeeper's living quarters, where guests and operators can interact during evening and breakfast hours. Evening office closures are normal. A continental or full, hot breakfast is served and is included in the room rate."
