— As a mom of 5 kids who enjoy traveling, I love AllTheRooms! It is quick and easy to find the best deal on lodging that fits our family, in the area we'd like. AllTheRooms really does save you time, money, and hassle.
— 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
— My favorite thing about AllTheRooms is that it combines both rentals and hotels available so you can see an entire view of what is available in a certain area. I was able to see listings on AllTheRooms that I never even saw on other travel sites!
