A B&B can give you a unique view of an unfamiliar area. There’s a sense of coziness and history in many establishments and personal attention is second to none. Compared to hotels and motels, bed and breakfast establishments can make your visit to Nevada feel as though you were visiting friends or even staying in a luxurious spa setting. And as for creature comforts, B&Bs are known for their attention to detail and are especially good at catering to your every need.
