Dear Gulf Coast Innkeepers,

As a business owner operating along the Gulf, you are no doubt concerned about what will become of the beaches following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. And you are not the only one, millions of travelers are wondering the same thing. On top of everything else, now you also have to worry about how it will potentially affect near future bookings. Here at we would like to reach out and offer a helping hand to those in our Gulf Coast regions. We are very excited to announce a brand new way for Innkeepers in these areas promote their properties during the coming months.

Announcing: “ Gives Back”…to the Gulf Coast Bed and Breakfasts that have been or will be directly affected by the 2010 Oil Spill. We want to personally come stay at your Bed and Breakfast, and help directly promote your Inn! In exchange for a one night stay by a member of our “On Location” staff, properties involved will receive the following:

  • An In-Depth “ On Location” Feature on our Homepage: complete with photos of our stay, detailed listing of your amenities, Innkeeper interview, and a spotlight on your area and the attractions that have not been affected by the oil. In total, each property will receive THREE blogs featuring their property.
  • 3 Months Free With 2010/2011 Renewal
  • Free Photo Gallery to promote up to date photos of your “Inn and Surrounding Area”
  • Links to your Property and Blog on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Please email us at or call us at the number below to set up a date for us to come visit your Inn. If there is more then one Inn that applies in your city, we will be choosing one or two to visit, however all applicants will be featured. Our main focus is to keep as much positive attention and publicity focused on the Gulf Coast during this trying time, and we look forward to working with you directly in making sure your property continues to receive the Spotlight it deserves.

Most Sincerely,

Denee MacDonald
