Pros

The messages system and the intuitive layout. The mobile version also works wonderfully. We work both with Mac and PC without problems. I have no complaints of the daily function of the software so far.

Cons

If you create 2 rooms of the same type you won't have them outlined in different occupation lines, so you need to create both rooms separately if you really want to see directly which one is busy which dates.

Post the excellent support in starting up, the support function was at first "spotty" with inconsistent and sometimes delayed follow-up, to now, after 5 months of use, it has become "diabolical"! I have been trying to solve a problem with Googoe Analytics for 10 weeks. Today, with no answer to my last plea for help, after 5 weeks. I am beginning to question whether Lodgify is now as bad as VRBO et al in it's attitude towards customers.

Pros

Software is good, if a little slow on Ipad.

Cons

The support function is deteriorating by the week - now diaboilcal!

We decided to rent out our Croatian stone house a little more than two years ago and surveyed the available options for website development and especially those that focused on property owners. It didn't take long for us to sign up with Lodgify. And, importantly, it didn't take long to create and populate our site with text, photos and all the info that a prospective guest wants to know. Useful and attractive templates, web hosting, domain flexibility as well as timely user support. I have interacted with staff a number of times over the past two years and have always been satisfied with the advice and problem-solving. This review is not like those where someone has purchased a product and is reviewing it based on what was received years ago - Lodgify has added great features to their program, including easy to use mobil templates, HTTPS, easy calendar sharing among the top rental sites such as Booking.com, etc. Clients can participate in webinars and read the latest in market promotion tips. We've had two great summers of rentals here thanks to Lodgify.

Pros

Professional , flexible and easy to use at a great price point.

Cons

Hmm, nothing really comes to mind.

Advice to Others

Property owner needs to provide only photos, prices and text to populate the template. No need for website development expense.

I started working on my site a couple of months ago and fair to say that what took me weeks and weeks to do elsewhere, took me 2 days to do on lodgify. Customer support representative, from sales, also super girl customer service extraordinarily really made my dream come true, with customer service and technical support/skills I couldn't have imagined in the best of dreams. She understood and analysed my existing site and graciously explained the differences and benefits that I would have, held me by the hand (metaphorically speaking) and took me step by step when necessary as the tool is very easy to use. She has been right throughout and present every time I've needed her... I feel SUPPORTED every single step of the way. Am so glad to actually get real proper support by a real person who actually cares. I'm also exited that the platform's team is always trying to be better by adding extra bits and pieces and all I could wish for now is that I had found Lodgify 2 months ago, my life would definitely had been a lot easier, but perhaps, I may not have appreciated it so much as I do now after walking through the valleys of complicated web tools, systems and platforms. My life is easier, I have a lot less to learn and manage, i have support I can count on and a lot more time on my hands to work on other areas such as social media, I don't have to worry about a huge list of things, so it's worth paying monthly, I can go to sleep like a baby knowing that my money is well spent on a platform that is constantly improving. 5 stars for the system and 5 stars for her (Customer support representative), badass technical support angel!

Lodgify has been a great experience for us to get a website up and running cheaply and easy to maintain. We have gotten many bookings from the website and are very pleased with the results. Easy to upload pics and information and to take a booking.

Pros

The ease in updating the site and accepting bookings.

Cons

When they change or update it, it takes a bit to figure out the differences and how to work them.

Advice to Others

Wish there was an app that would give me a notice on my phone when we receive a booking request.

Lodgify has been godsend to me in managing my vacation rental. The website was easy to customize and looks very professional. You can't go wrong for the money. The flat fee with no percentage taken is much better than VRBO and others like it in my opinion. They have experienced some growing pains with website updates and the such but the customer service is right on it when I have an issue. The default is European date format but they were able to accommodate the format for the US. Thanks Lodgify team.

Pros

easy to set up and runs flawlessly

Cons

not being able to select the date format like you can select the currency and it is harder to customize pricing and cancellation policy

For the price, there isn't a better online lodging platform. Most platforms similar to lodgify cost up to thousands per year after they take a commission for the sales that I generate. Lodgify's low monthly cost is perfect for business that want an easy to use, customer friendly experience without gimmicks.

Pros

Easy to customize website that fits my customer's needs. The calendar feature has a great interface.

Cons

Company will roll out an update and I feel in the dark for a while until I figure out how it works. I don't like the "create booking with quote" feature.

I wish I could just create a booking and select what emails to send to my customer through a drop-down box or something similar. Probably 75% of my bookings are over the phone so the only emails I need to send are receipts and the automated 3 days before arrival email. I want to dismiss the "Guest Agrees" email while still creating a quote.

We have used Lodgify for 2.5 years and there is no comparable vacation rental software. It presents the most beautiful website with greatest design flexibility, the most features with many currencies and language options, the lowest fees, the easiest for guests, and the greatest support by far.

Pros

Ease of use, flexibility and results.

Cons

With the continual positive improvements, there is nothing to add here.

Advice to Others

Keep up the great work.

For my simple purposes (simply a website- no online booking etc.) I am not interested in the product at the new cost. Synced calendars is really the only function that is nice but I could even do without any calendar- just an ad.

We run a fire and chambre d'hotes business in France and were looking for software to create a website. Lodgify provided everything we wanted and indeed many additional elements that we hadn't thought of. It was simple to use and the when we had a question the support was fast and efficient. Over the year we have been using the software there have been regular updates and improvements. We would recommend this software¿ to anyone with a holiday property rental business

I have not had any problems with Lodgify. I enjoy the services they provide. Syncing the calendars is probably the most important feature that I didn't expect to get when researching applications.

I have had a wonderful experience with Lodgify. The template choice was great and I selected an awesome template that is very fitting for my Vacation Rental Home. I enjoyed building the site from the template and the periodic tweaks and updates I am able to do myself. I have had few issues or roadblocks, but every time I have had a question or needed assistance a Lodgify Rep has replied within 24 hours (depending on time change between their/your location and mine in the US). I get lots of compliments on my website and my husband and I are very grateful for Lodgify for the experience and assisting us on our website for our Maine, USA Vacation Home website.

Pros

Lovely user friendly Template Choice; Great Reservation System; Ability to adjust, update and alter site appearance and content on my own

Cons

The only issue I had was with the subheadings which we choose to appear on the home page for easy view/access to our "less than computer savvy" users who are not familiar with the drop down icon. Every time the program was updated, the view returned to the drop down bar icon. (We received a few complaints that users could not find how to access info)! We understood program design was altered to accommodate use of phones, tablets and small devices. However, after voicing my concern, our site was adjusted, file noted and now viewers can see the sub-headings on laptops and desktop computers and the drop down icon on small devices. We are very happy with the Tech support and assistance in resolving this one small issue.

Advice to Others

Do not hesitate to choose Lodgify for your Vacation Rental Property website. We are extremely happy. Tech Support Reps are friendly, professional, very prompt in response and extremely helpful and the website Templates are beautiful.

This is my very first experience with creating a web site. Lodgify people have been very helpful since the beginning, spending a lot of time for a not so young lady, who approached them for the first time. They followed me step by step and Giovanna, my first assistant, was very patient and helfpul. She gave me great ideas on how to create my web site for my new BnB in Sicily. I have appreciated all their help. Thank you guys.

The Lodgify websites are very easy to build and maintain with no technical expertise required. I am also very happy with the service and support. I chose lodgify as they have a flat rate without commissions. I also like the integration with other booking engines and OTA's. This has really simplified the booking process. Over the last year I have taken on a few more properties and they each have their own lodgify website too...but it is all centrally managed by me. I am pleased to say have seem improvements made over the 12 months I have been using Lodgify so it feels like the company is doing well and will continue to grow and improve which is vital in this industry. My biggest comment is that I find the software very intuitive and simple. I look forward to further features to help manage more properties.

Pros

Intuitive, simple to use. Excellent websites that are mobile friendly and guests find easy to book my houses on.

Cons

I can only see 5 houses at a time...I wish I could see them all by default.

Advice to Others

Excellent solution, delivered at a reasonable price, for someone wanting a great website and booking software which easily integrates with OTA's such as AirBNB and Trip Advisor.

I was a sceptic!
How could one product after so many I've had on trial with disappointing results be any better?
I made an appointment for a phone call from Lodgify to discuss my requirements then signed up right after I put down the phone.
Another Surprise!
My next incoming booking received a message direct from Lodgify advising them of their arrival details - a manual task I don't ever have to worry about again.
There are so many tools and features to Lodgify I'm having a great time finding new "surprises" to make my workflow even better and my guests experience much more rich and personalised.
Airbnb is my top booking referral which also interfaces seamlessly with Lodgify,
This is a dream product for a busy management business with multiple properties, the website is clear, concise and professional.
I'm very satisfied that after a lot of fails I came to my greatest success.
