Abstract

This thesis is a study of the management information needed by bed and breakfast operators. The need to understand what makes a bed and breakfast inn successful and how to go about providing this information to the operators is the focus of this study. Four books on "How To Open a Bed and Breakfast Inn" were analyzed using content analysis. Additionally, a survey was sent to Nevada bed and breakfast operators to identify their informational needs. The results of the content analysis and the survey were compared in order to identify topics that were not being covered adequately for Nevada bed and breakfast operators. Finally, recommendations were made identifying topics that should be emphasized in future "How To" books.
