Popular Bed and Breakfast
A number of people are fond of making advance bookings in hotels before travelling, this seems like the ideal thing to do. This will work for a number of countries around the world, but there are a few exceptions. One of the exceptions to that rule is new England; a hotel will not quite cut the bill for you. This is not because of the state of your bank account, it is more of the cultural significance that you are more likely to gain from a bed and breakfast rather than a hotel.
