— I love All the Rooms because instead of having to check one place for home rentals, another for hotel, another for bed and breakfasts, and yet another for a room rental in a private residence, I can finally see EVERYTHING at one site; saving me considerable time
— 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.
