If you are thinking of buying a hotel, Bed and Breakfast and have never run one before then you need to do careful research throughout the buying process and into your first few years. The cost of a book is miniscule compared with the size of investment you are proposing so getting the best information to help you identify a good hotel business to buy and to recognise what changes if any will need to be made is a 'no-brainer' - don't just rely on one viewpoint or book, consider buying at least two. Remember that most people who have indepth experience of running hotel and have written about it will have gained that experience in one particular geographic and social environment and quite possibly have specialised on a particular size of operation so very few people if any have the complete picture - its best to see what all of them have to say.
