B&B Guidebook Review
National Lodging Directory

Date last reviewed:
- Area Covered:
- USA, covers all states but some may have few B&Bs. Strongest on coasts.
- Listing Type/Number:
- About 425 total [estimate based on actual count], of which most are hyperlinks to independent or other-service pages. Has some enhanced listings with picture and 3-line description plus outside link, but most of these are hotels. Remainder are links only.
- Uses Frames without text option. Select state directly from left frame, then scroll: enhanced listings shown first, then other types with B&Bs listed first, other categories in alpha order (country inns, hotels, inns, resorts, etc.); within category, listed alpha by city/inn name - in some cases shows lesser-known places in destination area under the destination, with approximate real location.
- Quality Assurance:
- Inspection/affiliation generally shown only if inn shows it on linked page.
- Has "useful links" page. States with many enhanced listings can be slow to load pictures (this is dues to number of pictures, not picture size), but text & links available quickly.
- Innkeeper Info:
- Promotion: Promotes main site only.
- Rates: Link $30, 'enhanced listing' as described above $70. Sign-up on line (but not payment).
- Contact (617)264-4837 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Comments: In enhanced listings, difficult to pick out B&B listings from all the hotels.
