NEW MEXICO BED & BREAKFAST ASSOCIATION
The New Mexico Bed and Breakfast Association (NMBBA) has been the foundation of the bed and breakfast industry in New Mexico since it was created in 1995 by innkeepers across the state. With goals of increasing the visibility of the B&B industry, giving the industry a voice among lodging options, and maintaining a high standard of hospitality among member properties, NMBBA is a powerful advocate for the bed and breakfast industry.
We would love for you to join us!
Our member inns are located throughout New Mexico – all inns are licensed, inspected, and insured. We welcome all bed and breakfast inns that maintain a high standard of hospitality to become a member of NMBBA. Why? Because together, we are stronger. As the lodging industry ebbs and flows with hotels, inns, vacation rentals, glamping and more, our united presence in the state is a benefit to all of us, as well as to our guests.
For bed and breakfast inns in the state of New Mexico, there is no better partner to have than NMBBA. As a member, you will join a community of independent bed and breakfast owners who are happy to help other members by sharing their knowledge and experience, as well as benefit from NMBBA’s on-going marketing.

QUALITY ASSURANCE PROGRAM
- Our quality assurance program is designed to assist all members in maintaining and raising standards of bed and breakfast inns throughout the state. New members take part in a quality evaluation assessment to provide feedback, recognize strengths, and identify potential opportunities. The assessment of new members is done by a NMBBA board member, takes place over the course of an overnight stay at the property, and concludes with an exit interview.
- Congressional lobbying during sessions to promote tourism legislation.
