Select Registry: Quality Standards for Exceptional Inns

Longtime followers of Inn Partners may be aware of our deep connection to Select Registry: Distinguished Inns of North America.  For over 40 years, Select Registry has worked to provide success-minded Innkeepers/owners with the tools and brand power to differentiate themselves from some 28,000 lodging options throughout the country. Quality Assurance is the hallmark of Select Registry, used to maintain the high standards that guests have come to associate with members of the organization.

The Quality Assurance Evaluation utilizes an independent organization and provides owners with unbiased feedback on quality, cleanliness, comfort and hospitality, from a consumer’s point of view.  It also seeks to test whether the Inn meets the comprehensive requirements of Select Registry Inns.  Needless to say, the criteria for the Quality Assurance Evaluation are thorough, establishing goals and standards that cover everything from interior and exterior/grounds maintenance to the ambiance and cleanliness of guestrooms to fine dining availability at or near the Inn.

Beyond the assumed performance benchmarks used (reliable Wi-Fi, clean bedding, guest security and “no evidence of previous guests”), the evaluation stays grounded in the ideology of Select Registry’s founder, Norman Simpson, who believed Inns were a “reflection of the personalities and tastes of the individual innkeeper-owners.”  So, appropriately the inspection also considers whether or not the property exudes a “sense of place.” This idea pervades every category of the report, from the uniqueness of the physical plant to offering local/seasonal ingredients in dining to attentiveness of staff and their knowledge of the Inn’s location and area activities.

While many Select Registry properties score high on their Evaluation, it is rare for a property to achieve a 100% score.  In fact, only three current members of over 325 Select Registry Inns have a 100% rating.  Inn Partners has the pleasure of currently representing one of these high achievers in the transfer process, this active South Carolina Inn for sale.

In addition to demonstrating the highest level of exceptional service, quality and hospitality, the Inn is also a member of the BedandBreakfast.com Diamond Collection and is one of a select few AAA Four Diamond Inns and restaurants in South Carolina.

As former Select Registry Innkeepers and emeritus members of the organization, we understand that membership in Select Registry is a reliable sign of quality and viability. Having participated in the transfer of over 200 Select Registry Inns throughout the country, we are excited to be actively representing one of the standouts among the organization.
