Indiana B&B Association

The members of the Indiana Bed and Breakfast Association are dedicated to providing a memorable experience in special overnight lodging and attentive service for the traveler with professionalism in hospitality, cleanliness, and safety. The following is excerpted from the IBBA Quality Standards page of the indianabedandbreakfast.org website:

Members of the Indiana Bed and Breakfast Association provide a surprise-free way to know your B&B stay will be a great one. Before an Inn is granted membership in the State Association, it must be carefully checked by independent inspectors. These inspections are thorough in scope, covering safety and security items as well as appearance, comfort, and cleanliness. To maintain membership, each member inn is required to be re-inspected every two years to insure continued compliance with our Association standards. This process assures guests that these Inns will deliver a consistently safe, clean, comfortable setting.

You can rest easy knowing an Indiana Bed and Breakfast Assocation member inn will have important items covered for your safety at the Inn... you will stay in clean rooms with adequate lighting...breakfast will be prepared just for you and served in a pleasant environment...and, our innkeepers are dedicated professionals, offering the very best in Hoosier Hospitality.

The Indiana Bed and Breakfast Association has no control over the way individual innkeepers conduct the business operation of their inns. We do encourage the best in hospitality, quality assurance, and guest satisfaction. After staying at a member inn, guests are encouraged to complete an IBBA Comment card.

Comments or concerns should be directed to the:

Professional Association of Innkeepers International

In 1988 two innkeepers, Pat Hardy and JoAnn Bell, created the Professional Association of Innkeepers International (PAII) as an outgrowth of their successful monthly newsletter, innkeeping. Their goal was to serve the industry nationally by providing programs and services that would enhance the professional skills of both active and aspiring innkeepers. From a tiny office in Santa Barbara, California, PAII has grown into a national organization of nearly 3000 members. Pat and JoAnn retired from the association in 2002, and turned the successful association over to an industry consortium called the Distinguished Inns Alliance. Today PAII is run by a professional staff based in Haddon Heights, New Jersey. It is governed by a nine person Board of Directors, along with numerous committees and task forces.

PAII also strives to act as a clearing house of information and support for numerous state B&B organizations. It has hosted conferences for state association leaders many times over the years, and its executives are frequent speakers at state events. PAII represents the B&B community to the larger travel and hospitality industry with ties to the Travel Industry Association, AAA, Mobil Travel Guide, AHLA, as well as with various government agencies at both the state and Federal level.

PAII's Mission Statement
We are committed to fostering a knowledgeable, caring and conscientious community of professional innkeepers, networking with each other throughout the world.

Excerpted from PAII's Vision Statement:
PAII STANDS FOR a commitment to excellence and professionalism within the innkeeping community and among the general public.
