Toolbar Is Missing Something

TripAdvisor's toolbar list: Hotels-Flights-Vacation Rentals-Restaurants. Where is the Bed & Breakfast category? B&B's are very different than Hotels therefore should be treated as such and have its own heading on the toolbar. People looking for this type of lodging may pass up using TripAdvisor thinking they do not list or review B&B's. Having a B&B category in the toolbar will draw the eyes of travelers who are set on finding the best Bed & Breakfast they can for their stay.

Thank you,

When you click on Hotels the page it takes you to does have B&B and Inns listed as a separate category

Hi Flip, did as you said, I clicked on Hotels. It brought me to a page that says "Hotels and Motels-Find hotels travelers trust-Find hotels". Had pictures of hotels from all over the country. I understand when you put in a destination city it list B&B. What I'm trying to say is, TripAdvisor should list B&B, now come to think of it Inns, separately. Not lump them under Hotels. In my humble opinion, a traveler looking for a specific type of lodging should be able to click on that particular category, be brought to a page that shows pictures of those establishments from all over the country. At that time the traveler can put in their destination city and choose accordingly. Just a suggestion.

You're not looking on this forum are you? You need to be in a specific Destination Forum for the accommodation (Hotels) listings there. A country forum isn't set up to work this way. And the US doesn't have a Country Forum.


The above link opens to the page for Vancouver hotels. I clicked on the Hotels button in the green menu bar and the page opens to the view you see. There are tabs for many types of accommodation.

If the city you are looking at is too small, the B&Bs may be listed below the hotels.

"be brought to a page that shows pictures of those establishments from all over the country"

Why? How many people travel to every city in a country or dont know where they are going and pick a city from a countrywide hotel or B&B list? Listing by cities makes a lot more sense to me.

But you are right. The search box n this forum reads "hotels and motels". It must be very old. Hotels is the labe used almost everywhere on TripAdvisor to indicate Accommodations.
