These facilities are generally much more sterile in character relative to B&Bs. The rooms are typically the same throughout the facility (unlike B&Bs where each room is typically quite different). The guests of hotels generally use the hotel as a place to stay at night. The operator will usually see the guest when they check in and when they check out. This differs from a B&B where the guests are encouraged to spend time in communal rooms and socialize with the operators and other guests. Breakfast, if included at all in hotels, is sparse.
