What live was like....

What was life like in the Middle Ages for Innkeepers?  AskWiki says"There were very few inns in this time and if a person travelled they often stayed at a monastery where there was safety. An innkeeper would have taken care of the guests and inn if they had existed."  Times have not changed much....we do that today at our Placerville B&B all the time.
