Self Serve Websites for Finding Local Guides & 2 Star Hotels

Sinotrip.com website was helpful for finding local guides and drivers. Now it seem to be just a tour company. Is there a website for this? Typically do 2 star hotels, small locally owned guesthouses and inns have webistes? Is there a listing of these anywhere?

Google "hotels + place" and you'll find a variety of sites like Agoda, Booking.com, Hotels.com, Expedia, Ctrip. They will include a lot of the guesthouses and when you find one that appeals, look at reviews on tripadvisor.

If you can find a website for your choice (often difficult to find good English websites for hotels/inns in China) you may be able to book direct. It can be useful if you would like the hotel or inn to arrange transport or guides for you in advance although this can be done on arrival.
