I don't know if this is entirely new, but I thought I would share these screenshots. I have yet to see local results display like this.
iPhone 5S in Google Chrome

The first photo is the initial results, picture 2 is swiping to toggle more local results. Pictures 3 and 4 are when you click on "See all" in a list format.

If you do a few local searches that are camping related, this seems standard. i.e. Camping Joshua Tree returns the same type of results with availability options by sortable by date.

I personally think these are better than traditional local results. Less scrolling.

Thoughts?

Whoa, nice screen shots Blake. Thanks for sharing.

I don't have an iPhone so not sure if different or when changed.
Maybe others can weigh in with their thoughts?

I found it very compelling and a huge hog of screen space. All in all I think that creates 3 winners among the top 3 ranking for a phrase.

I was looking at some search phrases in my metro region with lots of competitors for restaurants and hotels in certain metro submarkets.

It snatches up a lot of screen space for the top 3. I think it creates real winners and losers. It makes high maps rankings far more critical, IMHO.

For restaurants, hey...so many restaurant choices are made on the go and via mobiles. In the hotel business the massive change in same day reservations is more and more via mobile.

So these changes are significant.
