The Google Maps Review features covers all types of services and establishments that are indexed by Google.  From finding good doctors and dentists, hotels, bakeries, hardware stores, salons, pet spas, auto mechanics, plumbers, and more. For as long as these services and places are listed on Google, you can write a review. But then of course, some user responsibility is required of reviewers. Don’t just go on a reviewing spree even of places that you have not visited before.
