— When I plan a trip, I no longer waste time visiting multiple websites in search of the best accommodations. Now, I just go to AllTheRooms and immediately find everything from luxury villas to pet-friendly rentals! All in one place
— Like the buttons on the calendar which say today, tomorrow - that will make it easy for booking on the road. Website looks great - clean and easy to understand.
— I love AllTheRooms because it is not only local homes for renting, and not only hotels, but everything combined. When I am about to book a place to stay, I usually spend a couple of hours looking through both hotel sites and local home sites, comparing the prices and places.
