    I don't have much problem with this app. Sometimes it freezes for a second, but this is rare. You cannot add a custom page outside of an existing template

    Reduced time in managing multiple properties. Reduce mistakes (e.g. double bookings, pricing not updated correctly across sites)

    Pros

    Support - first class. Reponsive, knowledgable and helpful.
    Template driven so easy to set up.
    Nice integration with Booking.com and Airbnb so far.
    Good messaging system.
    I'm getting by with only the basic system right now but also know there is still more it can do so happy and not even using all the features.

    Cons

    I would like the same level of integration that it has with HomeAway and Airbnb with other vacation sites. Ideally it would truly be the single place to go to make updates.

    Looks fantastic but Crashes frequently and backend needs improvement

    Ease-of-use
    Functionality
    Quality
    Support
    Value for Money

    I'd really love it, even without the mobile app if they fixed the default search to allow you to set a minimum and if the website did not crash so often.

    Pros

    User friendly. It looks great and, when it's working, the site is intuitive and easy for new site visitors to figure out. Searching the calendar is simple so guests can see overall availability. Having a full photo gallery is great- you are not limited with images.

    Cons

    You can not add custom pages beyond the template that is already there. We connect it to our already existing website so we can lead people to our page that sells gift certificates etc and to our faqs. The website crashes frequently. So far we have been using the website for 8 weeks and in that time we have experienced 4 major crashes (2 on weekends when there is no tech support) that have lasted all day and prevented anyone from being able to book or see our site listings. I'd estimate this has cost us lost revenue from bookings. No small number as our website does. We have reached out to lodgify each time and though nice, they never seem to know what the problem could be and when it works again they just say "well it's working now!"...until the next system fail.

    If you have a two night minimum there is no way to make the search default to two nights- it defaults to one night and if someone clicks search it just looks like you have absolutely no availability. for example if they put in July 6th as the check in date then July 7th is automatically entered as the checkout date (even if you have a two night minimum. There is no way to let the people know they have to enter in two dates on the mobile version (where most of our users come from) so many of our users just give up and think we are completely booked all the time. The only place to write that we require two nights is in the site descriptions and we have to go through a paragraph explaining that guests must search for two nights in order to see availability. This might not sound like a big deal but if it automatically defaulted to two nights then we'd see a 20% increase in bookings as people would not give up before reading the site descriptions. People might want to only pay for one night, but they would book for two if they realized there was a two night minimum.

    They also lied to us when we signed up in order to get our payment and assured us that there would be a mobile app within a week of when we signed up. We let the sales agent know this was very important to us and she guaranteed it. When I contacted someone a month later asking about the status of their mobile app the person I spoke to said he had no knowledge of any mobile app and there were no plans for one and tried to tell me I had misunderstood (nope- had it in writing over an email).

    A one stop holiday rental portal that can offer a channel manager, reservation system, rates setup, booking calendar, reviews and website.

    Rates and promotions can be a little tricky to set up but with assistance from customer support I was able to implement it. They even sent me a personal video to explain how to do it. Best customer service I've ever experience.

    It's a good adjunct for online marketing.

    Pros

    The best part of the product is the design of the website templates. The back end system is good but not great. Syncing the reservation calendar with airbnb and vrbo is great!

    Cons

    Reservations Calendar is not particularly intuitive. The color of the calder on the website is confusing - white is booked and blue is available. Should be opposite a few people have been confused by this thinking we're booked when we're not.

    Very cheap. Does what was promised. Exactly what i was looking for! Guest and other alternatives too it were either chunky or too expensive and leaves little to our bottom line.

    Cons

    Didn't like how i had to get seperate channel manager (outswitch) because iCal sync was too slow in syncing so there were a few cases of double bookings which was the worst.

    Pros

    It integrates the various calendars from different platforms and allows you to see the calender in one single page.

    Cons

    The interface isn't particularty good and have encountered many bugs. On top of the that, many features aren't well integrated. When I added booking.com as a channel, the software for some reason found it necessary to change my minimum number of nights per stay to 1, which is highly unprofitable. In the next 2 days, I received 5 bookings for 1 night, which booking.com won't allow me to cancel. I will now loose hundreds of euro + a lot of time with these bookings.

    Dear Pedro, thanks for your review. We are happy to see that you find our calendar useful! Setting a channel manager connection is a complex process, and requires actions from both our connectivity team and our customers. Our customer support team has tried to provide as much guidance as possible, but the Booking.com connection has not been confirmed from your side. This has consequently caused the issues you describe. To discuss this in further detail and find out the next steps to resolve your issue, please don't hesitate to get in touch with support@lodgify.com. Very best wishes, the Lodgify Team

    More bookings and online presence.

    Pros

    The aspects I like most about using Lodgify is its user friendly interface and website management tools. The overall quality of the website looks very profession and it is easy for our prospective clients to navigate.

    Cons

    The aspect that I least like about this software is the inability to prevent bookings too far in the future. For instance, I would like to prevent instant bookings for more than 1 year in advance.

    Value for Money
    Pros

    The software has choices such as having a calendar that tells consumers if the dates are available they are interested in. This allows them to make their plans and arrange their trip around the availability of our vacation spot. It had templates to use to initially set the site up. It also has prices for extras you may supply at an extra fee like our boat or kayak service. There is a photo gallery that allows you to get the true picture of a thousand words before your perspective clients. You can add discounts and local attractions to let future guests know they will have a full vacation experience including all the bells and whistles. You can also add in discounts that can be automatically figured into their quote. Unlike other sites, it allows you to give your phone number so coustomers can deal directly with you. You have the opportunity to have coustomers book directly or contact you at an email address. This is also something that other sites do not allow until payment and fees have been collected by their company.

    Cons

    The main problem I have is that I am located in Texas. The company is there to walk me through any issues I have but there is a time change difference. This is better now with representation texting messages on the bottom of the screen in real time.
