INNS.COM OPENS THE DOOR TO A WORLD OF DELIGHTFULLY DIFFERENT LODGING, BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE OWNERS OF BEDANDBREAKFAST.COM

 

Love to discover the distinct charms of independently owned lodgings? From historic hotels to waterside resorts and mountain cabins, from knowledgeable innkeepers to uniquely decorated rooms, you’ll find it all at Inns.com. Newly launched, Inns.com listings include B&Bs, inns, hotels, motels, boats, cottages, cabins, condos, resorts, ranches, spas, and vacation rentals.

 

For the first time, consumers will find a lodging search engine that combines extensive property information with direct links to the properties themselves.  Unlike such search engines as Google or Yahoo, destination-based searches on Inns.com lead to listings with photos, descriptions, and icons for amenities, facilities, and rates. Advanced search tools make it easy to find places ideal for families, business travelers, and romantic getaways.  You won’t waste time clicking through to the websites of lodgings that don’t meet your needs.

 

Inns.com is your direct portal to a wide variety of independent lodgings. If you are one of the many travelers who want to talk to the innkeepers first, you’ll see their phone numbers as soon as you click through to their websites.  Prefer the convenience of online reservations?  Click the “Book Online” links.   You are never forced to book through a third-party mega-travel site.

 

Inns.com also offers extensive geographic search functions, making it easy to locate a property by state, city or region.  Additionally, the site is supplemented by tourism information, with links to state and regional lodging organizations.  For example, your search for a Florida property will also include links to the Florida Bed and Breakfast Inns Association, as well as the Florida Superior Small Lodgings Association.

 

Inns.com offers a wide variety of lodging types, but one thing you won’t find on this website is a chain motel or hotel.  Only independent properties can be listed on Inns.com. Since Inns.com is brand-new, many properties are not yet listed; if you don’t find what you want, check back soon.

 

Visit www.Inns.com and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at its easy-to-read format.  Inns.com is a breath of fresh technology, offering a search engine where there’s finally enough information for consumers to make an educated choice before clicking through to the site.  Be sure to check out the Inns.com Travel Library, with great advice from noted travel editor Sandy Soule.

 

Inns.com is an ELG Hospitality company; sister companies include BedandBreakfast.com, the leading online B&B directory, and RezOvation, offering state-of-the-art property management software and booking engine.
