— 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
— When I first opened up the AllTheRooms.com site, I was impressed right away... When I’m traveling, I don’t like to waste time searching multiple engines for accommodations, it gets overwhelming and frustrating fast. I want a unique, comfortable stay for the best deal
— 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!
