RATING: 2 INNSTARS
    Date last reviewed:

    Score: 41

Area Covered:
International, with multiple lodging types.
Listing Type/Number:
Last contact several years ago stated has 4000 paid listings (pages or links) throughout site, but has not provided number of B&Bs in US & Canada; I estimate 400-500. Has moderate list of basic contact info, and has cleaned out much (but not all) of duplicated or closed inns. Cannot easily verify number of listings because of layout.
Description:
Choose type of accommodations, then choose a Canadian province or U.S. state. Can then select region from map that shows main cities. Region shows cities with listings within region. Select city gives all lodging in that city. Or, from state page, scroll or jump through a long list of cities (now identifies those with expanded listings). Click on the city to see the list of inns. No matter what type of lodging you choose, list will include all types of accommodations that offer on-line reservations.
Quality Assurance:
Other:
Has on-line reservations via Inntopia & Driving Force. Site also has hotels, motels, campgrounds. Has newsletter. Has weather link. Has affiliated pet-friendly site.

Innkeeper Info:
  • Promotion: Promotes main site only - but does have state-related keyword on state page.
  • Rates: $10 basic contact listing, $20 for description plus link, more detailed for $50 ($30 renewal). Has on-line sign-up. Note: rates vary depending on which page one views.
