Win $500 towards your next B&B getaway

Bed and breakfast fans, we need your help. No valid nationwide data on inn guests has been collected since 1996. Please take this opportunity to help the industry by completing this survey. The information collected here will help innkeepers find bank loans to restore historic buildings or add guest amenities and services. It will also attract the support of state tourism bureaus, so they will put more of their dollars toward promoting bed and breakfasts. (Currently most states concentrate their efforts on benefiting hotels and motels.) Your privacy will be protected, information collected will only be used in aggregate form. No personal information will be associated with the data collected.

When you fill out this survey, you will be automatically entered into a drawing for a Bed & Breakfast/Country Inn getaway! You choose your favorite inn or our writers will help you find the perfect inn for you. ($500 limit.) Your chance to win is based of the number of completed surveys. Please help the industry with a few minutes of your time.

You must complete all fields for the entry to be valid for the drawing.
