    Score: 47

Area Covered:
Listing Type/Number:
About 800, with up to 4 pictures, 5 statements. Most have info request form, rates but no contact info; a few have links & contact as well.
Search options are state, keyword and advanced.
  • For state search, select state from list or click on US outline, then state or region name (intermediate step). State gives list of inns, alpha by city, with some info and link to more detailed page. May also access regions from home page left toolbar.
  • Search via town, state or B&B name gives a list of all meeting the criteria
    • For town, scroll long drop-down list of all town names in database - selecting Springfield will give all inns in Springfield MO, IL & KY listed on same page.
    • If select state, will get inns with that state's name in their listing, for example, a MT inn on the Missouri River when select for Missouri.
    • Keyword or B&B name allows a single word entry, so all inns with "jacuzzi" in description will show up regardless of state.
