RATING: Special Guide, no rating assigned
    Date last reviewed:
    1/17/2004
    Score: NA

Area Covered:
North America (& worldwide)
Listing Type/Number:
About 750 (based on previous year response), all hotlinks to other sites with very short description of why they're in a specific category. Directories linked to have thousands.
Description:
This is not a traditional site - Inns are listed by various types of locales, amenities, etc. (24 on review date). For example, lists include Inns near wineries, literary related, children or pets welcome, caves or fishing nearby, walk to the golf course, haunted, have mystery weekends, etc.
  • From the home page, scroll down the link categories on the left side of the page, which might be a bit confusing to those who are used to traditional layouts. Within a category, Inns are listed by region, then by state, in alphabetical order by Inn name. I'd suggest starting with the 'Recommended Inns' links, then try a specific style if desired.
  • Also has an option to find B&B by region. If select US, get a list of states, state list gives a long list of directories that cover that state.
    Quality Assurance:
    Has Inns 'Recommended' which includes guest comments. Forum also allows comments. Inns listed are selected by page 'guide.'
    Other:
    Has forum, events calendar, associations list, recipes, special offers and e-mail newsletter, along with interesting articles. A good place to find a special need.

  • Innkeeper Info:
  • Promotes guide only, reasonable for an all-links guide.
  • Rates: Free hotlink listing, if you fit one of their categories & they select your site. Also has sponsored links.
