In 2010 we had massive publicity for the Industry with B & Bs For Vets. Web designers AND Directories were telling their clients to list because the site was getting MORE hits than ALL the Directories combined. We are trying to do that again this year, but can only achieve it with the help of the B & B owners. It is legal B & Bs that will be listed (do not care if you list on AIR, as long as you are legal), as in registered, licensed...... PLEASE sign up.


Innkeeper Information:
All innkeepers/legal lodging property owners are invited to participate in the B&Bs for Vets program by offering a minimum of one room for one night and totally free to veterans and active military. Innkeepers/Lodging Professionals do not need to be members of ALP to participate as the program is open to all legal lodging operations whose property has commercial insurance, the required licenses/permits, and pays the applicable taxes. Many innkeepers will offer more than one room which is appreciated.

Additional information:
1. If you wish to offer more than one free room for one night, we encourage that! If you’d like to offer one free room and then a few more at a BOGO or specially discounted rate, that’s fine, as long as the one free room is honored.

2. Let us know when your rooms are booked and we will indicate this on your listing.

3. Strongly suggest you require a credit card when the veteran reserves and then inform them that all cancellation policies apply to free rooms and their card will be charged if they don’t abide by the policy.

4. Keep a waiting list.

5. Contact the veteran a few weeks in advance and confirm the reservation.

6. Acceptable Forms of identification are:
– Valid Military ID
– Veterans Administration ID
– Form DD-214 reflecting an honorable discharge
