    Score: 40

Area Covered:
National (US),
Listing Type/Number:
246 [actual count], including about 15% 'featured' and the rest external links. Featured generally have 1 or more photo and detailed text. Around 8000 basic contact info listings, some of which are long-closed.
Description:
Select state from display, then alpha list by city (scroll or jump) which lists all towns and number of Inns, featured inns and external links at each. Select city, with "featured" shown first. If click on question mark (?) next to city name, get 'towns in vicinity' feature, which gives all towns within selected distance (preset at 25 miles but can change up to 125) and indicates which have listed Inns - this also lists NPS sites and other geographical features. For some states, has option to choose special destination areas, as well.
Quality Assurance:
Does not indicate affiliations or inspected status.
Other:
Also allows a short description of the town, a good feature where data is provided by innkeepers. Has other travel links.
