Your team is now a part of an exclusive group of small businesses that have achieved this selection.

    The US Commerce Association provides several ways for you to leverage your company's accomplishment. First, you may use the digital award image from this email in any of your online marketing.

  • Kick the Gas Promotion

    We are participating!!!! yeah!!! you can between Apr 1st and May 31st get up to $50 OFF your reservation by bringing in a gas receipt dated within the past 3 days of check-in. See our Specials Page or make your reservation now.

    B&Bs Kick Gas! Gas prices are rising and innkeepers are coming to the rescue with a “kick gas” promotion. To help relieve pain at the pump for travelers, inns and B&Bs throughout the U.S. and Canada are going the extra mile offering gas saving of all kinds. Kick high hotel parking fees, cookie cutter room designs, toaster-waffles breakfasts and exorbitant hotel fees to the curb. This year travelers will enjoy a welcome with a smile, warm hospitality and plenty of extra value at North America’s inns and B&Bs offering complimentary breakfasts, refreshments, beverages, wi-fi and much more, plus packages designed to help drivers save at the pumps.
    Look for special offers from inns and B&Bs coast-to-coast extending gas deals, gas rebates, car tune ups, rewards for eco-friendly drivers, and fuel-efficient driving tips. And while you refuel the body, mind and soul at a country inn or B&B, your car will benefit and so will your wallet.
    No need to stay sidelined this year. Search through the B&Bs Kick Gas! promotions by city and state then join innkeepers in getting pumped for travel this spring and summer.

  • Get cheap flights

    How To Find Cheap Airfare.
    By Mike Barus

    Air travel to Bed and Breakfast in San Antonio is no longer considered a luxury only available for the wealthy and is now almost essential to our way of life. Instead of driving hundreds of miles to visit friends and family, attend a business meeting, or enjoy a vacation hotspot, a flight can whittle your travel time to a couple of hours instead of a couple of days. Also, more and more individuals are seeking to explore all corners of the world where car travel is prohibited. Although air travel is a great deal less expensive today than in days past, everyone is always looking the best deals available. If you are in the market to find cheap airfare, consider your options before you buy the first ticket available.
