Description: This study was conducted to determine what regulations are, and should be, involved in opening and operating a bed and breakfast in the State of Texas. Specifically, this study examined bed and breakfast regulations in Texas to identify the existence of, or need for, standards related to various legislation (including, but not limited to, zoning ordinances, building and fire codes, and insurance requirements). Bed and breakfast owners/operators in Texas made up the random sample that produced 106 usable survey responses. Regulations are in place at the state, county, and city levels of government. Bed and breakfast owners/operators were most concerned about insurance related matters, and various aspects of effective promotion and advertising.
