not a good deal?.
The PAII part of it is OK - for me the 800 lb gorilla is blech! They will not be happy until they control every aspect of an innkeepers business and therefore can charge whatever they want to expecting you to be happy as they do it. Yes, it is business and they can do whatever they want. I opted to tell them goodbye because what they wanted to charge me for what I was getting in return was nowhere near what they claimed the ROI would be as I paid for 3 rooms that same as a 20 room inn paid. Sad thing is - they then upped the ante on the 20 room inns with their Diamond classification! It is "such a deal" this year and then the hammer comes down at renewal time. Just my personal feelings.......

It is a great deal if you are planning to join either! I joined PAii when they were doing a special promotion with Tripadvisor business listing. So far, I have not felt any obvious benefits of either but I decided to give it a try. PAii is an organization I feel will benefit my business as long as I take the initiative to listen.
Bed and Breakfast directory has had many 'reviews' of sorts on this forum....some praise them and some ....well, don't. I for one have been on both sides of this issue and while I do not care for a lot of their business decisions, they are currently providing me a good bit of traffic to my site, so I will stay with them until the day where the cost out ways the results. At this point, they are #2 referrer, with bbonline #1 - as directory listings go.
If you currently do not have a listing with this directory and you have all the business you care to have, I say do not bite with this offer and just sign up with PAii alone. Now with the levels of membership, it makes it a no brainer to be a member.

Sorry but BLECH..
I am less and less happy with Band B. I am still a member, but not sure for how long. Will move down to the cheapest listing if I stay.
