B&B Guidebook Review
|| || |
Date last reviewed:
- Area Covered:
- USA; currently 33 states (best in Alaska, CA, ME). Most of remaining have some basic listings.
- Listing Type/Number:
- Currently about 185 [by my count] detailed listings, of which 33 are hosted with 2 or more pictures, logo, 500 or more words description; remainder are links to independent pages, some with a thumbnail picture on this site. Basic contact for about 6000 inns.
- From home page, select 'locate a B&B', then select state from US map or state list; on state page select region from map or text, then use an alpha list of cities with number of listings and featured inns in each (or from a detailed state/sub-state map click on the city). Within city, list gives detailed listings, then links, then basic contact info. Also has list of 'featured' inns, alpha by state (region in some)/city/inn name.
- Quality Assurance:
- 'Mail' page allows comments by guests. No indication whether listed inns are inspected.
- No way to tell which states have expanded listings before selecting the state (does have a list of 'featured inns'). Has list of some local associations. Has inns-4-sale, has newsletter, has specials.
- Innkeeper Info:
- Promotion: Publicizes both guide and detailed pages with localized keywords.
- Rates: Link package only is $30; 500-1000 word/2 photo is $60 (expanded pages available).
