    Pros

    We use Cloudbeds for two of our hotels. It is one of the best property management softwares for small hotels. They keep adding new features and functionalities. They have also came a long way with their PIE add-on, making the revenue management process that much easier.

    Cons

    There are certain functionalities that are missing, especially a mobile app. Being constantly on the move, i strongly believe users need a Mobile App of Cloudbeds ASAP.

    Cloudbeds is the best of an embarrassingly bad market. Their support is cheery and relatively quick to respond, which is all the more frustrating when they consistently cannot help you nor provide you insight into whether your issues will ever be fixed. They provide an "ideas" site for their customers to use (so their employees aren't required to actually talk to customers), and they have gone as far as to REMOVE the ability to comment on ideas in order to add more detail/use cases/etc. If screaming into the void wasn't bad enough, now they've closed the door in front of your face.

    Pros

    Seamless integration with third party channels. Would be nice to have less manual work in between each, but that is not something Cloudbeds could change easily, since it's also up to the 3rd party.

    Online booking widget/site is very good. Customer friendly, haven't received nearly any calls for people unable to figure out how to book. Calendar is relatively simple to use and provides ~80%+ of the info I need on a daily basis.

    Cons

    NO integration with a credit card swiping device. Instead, any walk ins or changes to credit cards for existing reservations require you to manually input the credit card, which is both time consuming AND costs us thousands of dollars extra a year in fees (keyed in cards are 1% higher than swiped for us).

    No mobile app, meaning you need to use their site which is not mobile friendly.

    Poor item entry to a reservation. Adding items to the system is a breeze, but adding them to a reservation takes 7 clicks IF you're already on the reservation folio, otherwise it can take 10 from the calendar! Total waste of time, especially when we sell numerous small items from our on premise store.

    Pros

    Allows inputting of many different channels and calendars while still allowing for flexibility of "back end" work- editing folios and reporting.

    Cons

    There was a pretty big learning curve with imputing reservations in- that might have just been me trying to realize how accounting works! Got it after a while but there are definitely a lot of voids where a simple undo would have been probably better...

    Cons

    Not sure yet. Only completed trial and hoping there are not cons. If there are I know I will have customer service to rectify problem

    Cloudbeds seems to be constantly improving. They welcome feedback and seem to actually listen. In the one month that I've been researching and using them they've already announced new integrations with other software and services.

    Pros

    Cloudbeds is an incredibly jam-packed PMS, booking engine, and channel manager all wrapped into one. The user experience on both the front and back end is intuitive and comprehensive. Zero commissions, literally hundreds of support articles, a steady feed of new blogs and ebooks, and a hip and forward-thinking team make this *hands down* the best SaaS for the small hoterlier.

    Cons

    I wish Cloudbeds offered group codes so private parties could have exclusive access to rooms on certain dates (like if we rent out our property for a wedding).

    Maybe the financial reports could be more precise. Monthly revenues separated per customer in total of room revenue, city tax, vat charge.

    Cloudbeds has the best Calendar-View for Hotel owners. Apart from that the features are really great - the drag and drop interface for moving bookings, cash-drawer, house-accounts and the channel manager itself. Not to be forgotten, their support is world-class as there team responds within an hour

    Cons

    At present they don't offer a mobile app for the Hotel owners. Although one could login into the PMS on the mobile browser.

    Pros

    We're managing some villas, hostels and hotels across Bali, Lombok and Flores, Indonesia. We always encourage our clients to use CloudBeds because it's easy for them to learn how to use and we're fully supported by their support team and their sales rep like 24/7h. Additional features like price intelligence, helps us as revenue management, to maximize the properties revenue growth.

    Cons

    As user and developer, we like more and more innovative features. I, personally am waiting for a mobile app whenever it's available!

    Accurate bookings, automation of tasks (e-mails, booking confirmations, amendments, no more typing reservations into the PMS from external sources...). Staff productivity is high, loss of transactions/cash is low (easy to investigate where mistakes happened in case numbers are not matching). New employees are ready to work in a matter of minutes, while an "admin" user might take only as much as 7 days to get (self) trained into advanced features.

    Pros

    Cloudbeds is one of the easiest software out there. Forget about the hours of training, complicated setup... it's intuitive, and mostly automatic. It helped us reduce considerably the amount of hours needed to handle reservations and no more overbookings. It comes at a great value, extremely competitive to any other option and can replace multiple other systems: channel manager, revenue manager, e-mailing automation... it does it all! The customer support is excellent and very quick to respond - always with a "can do" attitude.

    Cons

    This software was built for small/medium independent hotels. It fulfils its purpose beautifully. However, if you deal with a large volume of groups for example, it will be a bit inconvenient. Here's the good news: there are hundreds of new functions being developed and the software gets big updates almost every month. Group functions are coming by the end of 2018, and this software just keeps getting better.

    It is a good product that allows you to manage all areas and not having to rely on lots of different systems. The calendar function is neat and good to understand and generally, it is easy to use the platform.

    Cons

    The system has limitations on customization, if this could be looked at this would be very helpful. More reports should be added as the current reports are not very detailed.

    Adjusting bookings can be tedious at times. For us there are so many features that we don't need so that can just make bookings look more complex than they need to be.

    Hi Pamela, We completely agree that an oversell is never good for anyone. In this case, we do offer the connection with the channel so this wasn't misrepresented. The connection we have now works, but exactly the way you wanted it to work isn't supported right now. We are always striving to improve, so we passed your feedback about this particular channel to our connectivity manager and we will be trying to find ways to improve it. Our support team members are located in 28 countries including the United States and provide 24/7 support to our customers around the world in over 120 countries. We do hope that you are able to find a system that works for you and we wish you the best.

    WHEN it works it's a great system. But daily downtime and the worst customer support i've ever dealt with make it an easy choice for us to move to another system

    Activally working on updating their system, just not the problems that few hotels deal with.

    Cons

    I pray for your soul if you ever have to deal with their customer support. I've never been through such a frustrating process for 12 weeks and still don't have a mayor problem fixed.

    Contract was renewed even though we had written confirmation it wouldn't be before we discussed common issues.

    Hey Felix, It was great to chat with you on the phone. As we discussed, we are sorry that you did not have a great experience with our support team. Our team should have done a better job of communicating the timeline of the issue and also made more of an effort to reach out regarding your billing questions. We are now working on this issue and definitely took your feedback on how we could improve the communication process in the future. We hope you stay with us and we can can earn back your trust, but as we discussed on the phone, we are also more than happy to help you move to another system if you would like.

    Connectivity to OTA's. Online bookings. Lots of benefits actually- as many as ANY channel manager... but the problem was service when the product didn't work... then it really hurt us. Noone to call (no phone number listed) only online help- which was not helpful. They always made the problem mine... not ours as they are hired to be the experts. Like I really can solve the problems of their product not connecting!!

    Pros

    The software works wonders when it works. It's when there's a connectivity issue or bug in the system this firm fails. Online support does exist and they do offer quick feedback (not necessarily helpful, but it is fast feedback).

    Cons

    No phone number to call. No personal assistance. Lots of volumnes of help pages, but when your connectivity with an OTA goes faulty- guaranteed to get an email from customer service quickly saying you'll need to contact the OTA provider (who'll tell you to contact your channel manager). These guys sell them selves as the "professionals", but don't want to take care of the real immediate issues (any connection issue is an immediate issue when needing to sell rooms online).

    Hi Amy, we don't have a call-in number because we would rather get back to you in a few minutes with a solution than put you on hold. We replied to most of your tickets within 10 to 30 minutes with a resolution. We have some of the best rated support in the industry and 99.9%+ system up-time. We hope we've been able to earn back your trust in our support team over time.

    It is easy too use.
    it is easy to manage the reservation.
    The report is helpful for us to do some forecast in the future.

    Cons

    Add some more useful data on the pop up screen in order to get more easlier while we click on each reservation. For example, show the type of payment instead of the estimated arrival. Due to not that much of the guest who left the time for an information. But there are 2 ways of the type of payment which is we have to click on the reservation details in order to get this information.

    API is not reliable, don't build your third party app on top of it.
    We got bugs or timeout with almost all of their API call.
    Then they told us fixing the API bugs are not their priority.
    So why do they sell the API access and make advertising on internet to say they are the only one to have an API

    Thanks for your feedback. The API is a priority for us (we have a dedicated team working on it) and we are constantly improving our API so that it's more user friendly and has a wider-range of features. A critical part of that product vision is definitely stability and infrastructure and it's something we are heavily investing in. It looks like our integrations team is actively troubleshooting through a few support tickets with you right now. You've provided some great recommendations in there for ways to expand our API documentation that we're going to be implementing over the coming weeks. We're currently investigating where the particular timeout errors you're encountering are coming from since our logging metrics aren't registering it on our end. We'll absolutely keep working with you to find a solution here and appreciate your business.

    Ease of use, accurate rates and availability, great tech support, great customer service, very cost effective, and overall great all around product.

    Pros

    Cloudbeds is so user friendly and the fact that you have every function and administration features available with a simple click of the mouse is the icing on the cake. Every function along with any changes that need to be made are real time and always correct. The staff is amazing and the fact that I was able to build this PMS in less than four weeks was amazing.

    The export and import of my reservation history of over 9 years was flawless from my old PMS to Cloudbeds. The accounting features and overall digital capabilities is fantastic. No more servers or software needed to run our systems let alone the need of virtual servers which cost money each month.

    Cloudbeds has hit a home run with their My Allocator channel direct system. We have had zero issues with over bookings or discrepancies with rates since we have used Cloudbeds. My staff loves how easy it is to use compared to our old system. Keep up the great work CLOUDBEDS!!!!

    Cons

    I have yet to find anything that I don't like about Cloudbeds. However, as we continue to use Cloudbeds we will probably find items or issues that may come up. I am confident that Cloudbeds will address said items or issues if the arise.
