    How should I monetize a site with Hotel reviews of my state apart from adsense(Because the CPC is damn low here)...

    I have also seen some of my competitors are placing some kind of reservation chart where the visitors can fill it and book the rooms..

    How much do Hotels pay for that?

    I would recommend using the Hotels Combined affiliate program. They've got amazing pay, I've been using them personally for the past year and a bit and they've been brilliant. Just google them.

    I guess you could go and offer them an ad space on your site, but unless they're a small motel then they'll probably have someone advertising for them - like hotelscombined maybe. It would be a difficult sale, but if its what you want it could work.

    Sell to hotels page with full presentation and contact for reservation. Sell them banners if they have a site. Make a good presentation about ur site, ur trafic....then get in touch with ur local hotels and tell them how much customers they are missing by not having an ad/big exposur/ or a complete page about them on your site. U can even go to the biggest hotel and ask them to buy ur site if it's ranked well so that they dominate the web trafic in your area.
