    Date last reviewed:
    Score: 50

Area Covered:
Listing Type/Number:
Estimate about 500 B&Bs in US/Canada (per search results). Detailed have description, amenities, most romantic room & link; basic lack the link & room data.
From home page, select "Search the Romantic Travel Advertising Directory." Can then select "accommodations" plus any combination of city, state, country. Get list with featured first, then basic, in order of joining guide (not much help for customers) - but can search for specific cities/amenities.
Quality Assurance:
Featured listings have option of link to their availability page. Has ezine with a lot of articles, honeymoon info, specific B&B-related info. Guide cooperated in facilitating review and verifying data.
