Date last reviewed:
- Area Covered:
- Listing Type/Number:
- 392 listings (per search results) in US & Canada. Some have up to 10 expandable pictures; all have link, contact info, amenities, map link, short description.
- Home page offers several options; result of all is list, alpha order by inn name, with thumbnail photo (if available) and short description, links to inn's full listing and home page:
- List of states give inns in state alpha by inn name.
- Search block allows entry of city name & state, along with policy on children, smoking and pets.
- Popular B&B Destinations- similar results
- "Find a B&B" on top toolbar provides dropdown list of multiple options, including location, inn name, nearby city, by amenity list, innkeeper name, zip code. This takes you to a page that allows you to choose from any of these options.
Note - searching on St. Louis did not bring up inn located there that shows on the state list. Also, St.Louis and Saint Louis give different results on "nearby city" search.
- Quality Assurance:
- Inns list "inspected by" and memberships on websites.
- Allows links to outside availability sites (but didn't find any in my sample) or has directed email inquiry. Has email newsletter, inns for sale.
- Innkeeper Info:
- Promotion: Some individualization on inn pages.
- Rates: $99 plus $35 set-up fee (may have specials), sign up/pay on-line
- Contact: use form at site (but it didn't work on 1/12)
- Web Presence Evaluation:
- Reviewed but not ranked among the 78 guides evaluated by Inntelligent.com (0 star).
- Composite of INNSTAR/Inntelligent ratings: 3/10.
