    Default

    There have been numerous threads about safety for women travelers. I think I'm being accurate by saying that the consensus is that women are safe traveling alone as long as common-sense safety precautions are used.

    I would think a B&B would be a bit safer than a hotel as the owners usually live in it as well and would be close by, walls are usually thinner for anyone to hear a problem going on, etc. That said, that doesn't mean that hotels are unsafe. I think the key with hotels is that you choose one in an area that feels safe and that you don't open your door to strangers. In other words, avoid those with hourly rates. :-)

    Personally, I have stayed in hotels/motels alone, camped alone, and have slept in my car on some occasions alone and have never felt unsafe but I have been careful to choose appropriate settings.

    Default B&B's

    I have to confess that when we travel there is a better sense of security in a B&B. However when your driving, an overnighter in a B&B is often impractical. If I don't like the looks of a motel I simply keep going. Higher end motels tend to be more my choice as I age. You can't beat a B&B in a historic or scenic area for that home comfort. We have used Bed&Breakfast.com on many occassions. Have not been disapointed yet. Good luck.

    Default B&B versus motels overnight

    Your best bet is to stay at a Hampton Inn or other establishment with inside corridors. Hampton Inns are great places and should be safe. I am not a B&B fan unless you really know the owners.
