Pick a place and explore!

This site is for travelers who enjoy the unique experience of visiting one-of-a-kind inns, B&Bs, boutique hotels, guesthouses and similar independent lodging establishments. Since 1995 we have maintained a web presence for small hotels and travelers who seek them out.

Selecting a small hotel or similar property is not the same as booking a room in a chain hotel or resort. Each property is unique and reflects the personality of the owner or manager who runs it. Working directly with a hotel makes it possible to not only select the perfect hotel but also, in many cases, the perfect room within the hotel.

SmallHotel.com member listings offer expanded property descriptions and include website and email addresses for each hotel making it possible to contact these hotels directly for more information or to check and book last minute deals. Look for the SH symbol in our directory listings or use the menu on the left to browse only their properties.

Interactive Google maps

Our state and country listings and locator maps make it easy to pinpoint the perfect location for any vacation or occasion. Map markers pinpoint small hotels in towns and neighborhoods around larger destination cities to make it easier to discover intriguing hotels that are off the beaten path. Toggle to the satellite map to view coastal beaches, ski resort terrain and other physical features of an area.

Google Streetview, where available, offers a glimpse of the neighborhood around a hotel. Find video instructions for its use here. Our site makes it possible to zoom in and out and all around the world to find a small hotel in the center of where you want to be.
