    Sorry. Too long ago. It was about February 2013 when I was looking for room in Washington, D.C., USA, when I encountered those hotels. I'm not going to try to go back and find them (we ended up just using Hotels.com).

    In the UK and Europe we have Booking.com: 532,790 hotels worldwide. 35+ million hotel reviews. which covers pretty well all hotels, guest houses and bed-and-breakfast places. It covers the USA and other foreign countries as well. Another version of www.hotels.com. No-one has any cause or incentive to purchase a different system.

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.

    Book

    Their websites are not responsive 80 % people book over mobile phone(they have apps but you have to pay for it) first thing,second thing some good hotel can be on the second or fourth page usually customers take book room on the first page even not looking in fourth page.

    And how does your code solve this?

    My booking system is responsive first,second each website have to have their own booking system my is cheap so every hotel can afford it.And they will have owns website with booking system and calendars color availability and the customers can look only that hotel no another hotels.Booking.com and Hotel.com is for reach hotels they paid to be on the first page another hotels, they are on the third or fourth page. What you think about my "smart" date picker take look sz datepicker .

    But I think perhaps you don't have the perspective of most of the world: VERY VERY FEW people will go directly to a hotel's website to arrange bookings.

    Most people will go to a site such as Hotels.com or Priceline.com or Expedia.com to search for hotel rooms.

    Or, in the case of a large chain, they might go to Marriott.com or Hilton.com because they prefer a certain hotel or because they participate in that chain's "rewards" system (e.g., get a free night after two stays of two days or more, or something like that).

    Perhaps it is different in the country where you live, but what I just said is the reality in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, most if not all of Europe, Japan, Australia, even China for the most part. And probably large parts of the rest of the world. So your only sales are going to be to small hotels. And since I know that I could duplicate your system in a couple of weeks of work (and I think I could do a better job), I still feel that the price would be $20 to $40. If nothing else, more than that will be too much for such small hotels. It's not my fault that you took months of work to do something that is basically so simple.

    If nothing else, the question you asked in your first post in this thread tells me of your inexperience with JavaScript and your demonstration page tells me of you inexperience with human interface design. Just for example: What do you do about people who want to know the availability of rooms for a week that extends from one month into the next. Your calendar should show at least a week before and a week after the month in question.

    My calendar can work for next week and week after that even next year,i am not good in with java script i know little, but Php and my sql is my thing i am very good.What about color and design i am here to avoid those problems ,that you can tell me what i have to fix it.I protected my code,plus is php and mix java script(friend of mine help me out) works like one ,it is something new i call this programs japh language.But anyway 40$ for 10 hotels is 400$,good for coffee. Any way can i see your projects if it is this basic simple or give to me something what i can sell and it is hard to make it.
