Washington Bed and Breakfast Guild (WBBG) is a professional association of independently owned
and operated Inns and Bed & Breakfasts. Our membership criteria are clearly defined and published.
Each member facility is inspected every two to three years by an independent contractor. Our Quality
inspector carefully and thoroughly assesses each property’s compliance with all criteria for
membership each time the property is inspected. If a property has had 3 consecutive inspections on
2 year intervals without any discrepancies, their inspection interval becomes 3 years until such time
as a discrepancy is discovered. WBBG reserves the right to change membership criteria, but will
publish the revised criteria when and if that occurs.
We re-inspect all properties regularly because changes may occur to the maintenance or upkeep
of a property. Therefore, WBBG’s approval of a property for membership is not a warranty that they
are fully compliant at a later date.
Part of WBBG’s inspection verifies that all required safety equipment is in place, is correctly
functioning and that all applicable licenses are maintained. Read the current membership
criteria available lower on this page. Our inspection is not a warranty that no safety hazard exists
at a property.
Lastly, WBBG’s inspection is an assessment of the procedures and facilities of each property. It
is not a stylistic or aesthetic critique. Each of our member inns has a unique character as does
each innkeeper. That is a big part of the attraction that B&B’s and inns provide. We provide you
with a description of each inn so that you can assess whether it would be attractive to you. We
feel that you will enjoy your experience at any of our member inns, but your experience may vary.
