Who has the best hotel rewards program? One of the biggest surprises in the area of travel rewards is the Buy-One-Night-Get-the-Second-Night Free program known by many in the bed and breakfast and country inn travel scene. Developed by American Historic Inns and, 1,200 inns offer the program. For every dollar you spend, you get a dollar for the next night. A room for $155 will get you the second night free, so that you wind up spending $155 for 2 nights, plus any taxes. In addition, breakfast is included and often afternoon snacks, coffee and tea all day, etc.  Another plus of this program is the sense of place that small properties offer with their locations in historic neighborhoods or in beautiful natural settings. That, combined with the knowledge that your travel dollars often go to toward maintaining architectural treasures is often a bonus.
