Area Covered:
Listing Type/Number:
About 6600, but estimate only about 1/3 have links. Site appears to allow for a picture, but none noted in sample.
From home page, select country to get an "advanced search" page. Select "bed and breakfast" & state from drop down menus and enter city or zip code. Result is a table, alpha by city/inn, 10 to a page. May also go to a city and the selct type or enter a city in "quick search" on home page.
Quality Assurance:
Guide cooperated in facilitating review and verifying data.

  • Comments: Guide states: "I want to inform you of some of the benefits we offer which I don't see on other B&B sites. First of all, we strive to offer a complete list of all hotels and B&B's with direct links. Paid listings would come up first from a search. We constantly are searching CVB sites for new listings from each city. Properties also have the option to list as a place for meetings and/or conferences since we focus on "Suites for Lease by the hour, day, week, month or year". We have over 75,000 listings from the United States, Canada, Caribbean, Mexico, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, England, Ireland and Switzerland (and growing). Searches can be done from using the advanced search and entering one of the following criteria: city, state or zip code. You can also do a quick search from the homepage by city/destination or property name. We also list all CVB's and local property associations for any additional assistance. As far as your estimate of 1/3 having links, I believe the percentage is closer to 75% for B&B's since most do have websites. Our site gives B&B's the opportunity to compete with Hotels because we list both types of properties. Our low pricing makes a listing very affordable."
