Do B&Bs Help or Hurt Your Business?

Most business say neither, but there’s a shift over time among those who see an effect

The BOSS survey asked 402 local business leaders about the impact on their companies of visitors who use B&Bs and other nonhotel accommodations outside of the traditional resort areas.

Next, we compared the answers to this question over three BOSS surveys. The biggest change was more business leaders now say B&Bs help their companies and fewer say they hurt their companies.
