In the past, travelers went from town to town in the hopes of finding a good inn to stay at. Back then they relied on luck of the draw. Sometimes they found an inn worth staying at, and others they begrudgingly stayed at because they had little choice. These days, however, there are many ways to go about finding the very best inns to stay at. You don’t have to play your vacation by ear, and you can be as choosy as you can afford to be. The best way to search the best inns is via the internet. By simply searching for the best inns in the towns you’ll be visiting, you’ll find an enormous amount of information that will allow you to make the best choice for your needs.

Your Needs

Everyone’s needs are different. One person may think one inn is superior while another may have a horrible experience at that same establishment. It all depends on what you’re looking for. Keep this in mind when you’re searching for the best inns. What are you looking for when it comes to a good inn? Do you require a comfortable bed? Cable television? A coffee maker? Or do you want something a little fancier, like butler service? You may want to include your needs in your internet search. This will allow you to find the absolute best inns for your needs so that you don’t waste your time with inns that don’t pass muster.


What you really want to search for are internet reviews. These are testimonials from people who have actually stayed at the inns you’re looking at online. When searching through reviews, you’ll likely find more bad reviews than good ones. Keep in mind that few people go online and rant and rave when they have a good experience. When they pay good money, they expect to have a good experience. It’s not something they hope for. But when someone pays good money to have a good experience, and they fail to have that experience, they typically can’t wait to find a forum that will allow them to spread the news to others to avoid that inn so they don’t make the same mistake.

However, even though there may be more bad reviews, really study the reviews. It will soon become clear who had a bad experience because of something the inn employees did, or something the inn didn’t provide. Unfortunately, you’ll likely have to skim through many reviews of people complaining because of something beyond the inn’s control.

Study both the good and the bad reviews carefully and keep an open mind. You should be able to ascertain which inns you’ll prefer and which ones you’ll probably want to stay clear of. Just remember that when you do find the best inns, you’ll want to call and make reservations in advance. It’s likely there are others doing the same searches you are. If that’s the case, and the inns are as good as you think they are, you might have a hard time finding vacancies. So plan well in advance so that your vacation goes as smoothly as possible.
