If you're interested in knowing whether someone came to your site from a local search, I think it depends on how much local information they looked at. I can run a geo-targeted search at google.com, get a SERP that includes local results (the "7 pack"), and either click through directly to a site that came up in the results or go to more information about that company on its Google Places page. If I do the former, I don't think the owner of that site is going to know anything more than the fact that I clicked through from a Google SERP for a given query. That is, they won't know if I clicked an organic result or a local result from the SERP.

Hi Jill - the referrers just says google organic - I know the hits came from Google Places because when the domain was brand new 4 months ago new and not in the top 20 for " Bed & Breakfast in Aldeburgh " the site was getting 300 + visitors per week so it had to be from the the local places slot which is shown every time for this search phrase . Now the site is position 6 for the phrase trying to find out the breakdown between organic & google places . I can access the clicks stats from Google places though looking for an easier and less time consuming solution - maybe im asking for too much

Go to Traffic Sources > Referring Sites > then type maps into the filter source.
If you've gotten any referrals from google maps you'll see maps.google.com as a referrer.
Hope this helps!
