Reviews - What do customers think about There Is Room at the Inn: Inns and B&Bs for Wheelers and Slow Walkers?
Good information Jan 5, 2007
We haven't used this one yet, but looking it over shows how much is out there that we didn't know about. It is helpful that the book differentiates between "slow walkers" and "wheelers", as this is something that a lot of B&B hosts don't get. Too many think "accessible" is accessible to everyone & those of us who live with "wheelers" are often frustrated to find "it ain't so". This book will help us plan our vacations more carefully and yet not be stuck with typical look-alike chain hotel rooms.
