The Mobil Travel Guide star ratings are a 45-year-old consumer advocacy concept originally developed following the introduction of the interstate highway system. The goal of the Guide is not to identify and rate every property in the country, but to recommend only the best in each category, ones that we would send our customers to. We look at the stars from a consumer's point of view, rating lodgings and restaurants across North America from the perspective of the "average traveler."The Guides feature new enhanced descriptions for 2004. Listings include lodgings, restaurants, attractions, and events in established travel destinations, as well as cities and towns on the way to established travel destinations. Our new easy-to-use format makes the Guides even more indispensable to travelers. Each regional guide is organized alphabetically by state, with introductory information about the state followed by city listings in alphabetical order. For each city, the guide lists sites and attractions, lodgings, and then restaurants. One of the features that sets the Mobil Travel Guide apart from its competitors is its proprietary Mobil star rating system. Forty-five plus years of publishing experience and the oldest non-biased rating system in North America make the Mobil Travel Guide series a must-have for travelers wanting up-to-date ratings of hotels and restaurants.

From the Back Cover:

The Mobil Travel Guide travel planners are designed for ease of use. This book begins with a general introduction that provides a geographical and historical orientation to the state and gives basic statewide tourist information, from climate to calendar highlights to seatbelt laws. The remainder of the book is devoted to travel destinations within the state - mainly cities and towns, but also national parks and tourist areas - which are arranged in alphabetical order.
The following sections explain the wealth of information you'll find about those travel destinations: information about the area, things to see and do there, and where to stay and eat. Sections include maps and map coordinates; destination information; driving and walking tours; what to see and do; special events; side trips; lodging and restaurant listings. Take a journey across state borders and expand your horizons.

The South Mobil Travel Guide includes coverage of Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee

The Mobil Star ratings (what the Wall Street Journal calls the "gold standard of ratings") let you plan your trip with confidence, thanks to our stringent inspection process

Easier-to-read design and more concise listings have been updated for 2005, to help you get on the road faster

A new America's Byways section directs you to family-friendly historic and scenic attractions off the interstate

A new icon points out Mobil One- to Three-Star hotels and restaurants that are worth a closer look for their unique nature and extra-special amenities.
