    Score: 63

Area Covered:
USA & Canada
Listing Type/Number:
About 830 [by my count] in USA & Canada with picture, contact info, short description, policies and amenities. Also have map link. Vast majority have link to Inn's page.
Description:
From home page, select state from map or list to get list of inns in random order by listing level (but may re-sort by city or inn name - also provides some geographical narrowing-down for city). Each inn on list has option of viewing listing, direct link to home page, Google® map, or email.
Also has text search block at top of state page, allowing keywords of any sort, such as amenities, location, name, etc. (but to limit search to state, must include state name).
Quality Assurance:
Some inns may include affiliations in listing.
Other:
Has availability using several systems for many inns. Has additional travel links, some state association links, inns for sale, subscription list. Guide cooperated in facilitating review and verifying data.
