A game changer for vacation rentals

Reviewed on 2018/01/04

Pros

Relatively simple to use. I was able to set up my site and reservation system in less than a week. Site works extremely well on mobile devices (which is huge). I am starting to get a lot of direct online bookings which is amazing. The customer service is very good - I have asked several detailed how-to questions. In one case, I wanted to do something that is not part of the Lodgify product. The service rep researched other ways to accomplish the task and integrate into my site. She sent me detailed instructions and even links to assist me. Not many companies will take the time to do that!

Finally, the workflow aspect of the reservation system is a huge time saver. It is so nice to be able to set up automatic payment reminders, send rental agreements and canned emails automatically! Gives me time to worry about running my business and expanding the website instead of doing all the manual processes associated with bookings.

Cons

Some of the widgets are a little restrictive. I have managed to work around most of them.

My only other complaint is that if you respond to an inquiry with a quote, the system automatically blocks the dates with a tentative booking. I sync my HomeAway, VRBO etc calendars with my Lodgify calendar, so the tentative block causes those calendars to show unavailable. In this business, the conversion rate on inquiries is not high enough to block dates simply because someone sent an inquiry.

Response from Lodgify

Hi Deanna, thank you for reviewing your Lodgify experience. We're happy to hear how quickly and easily you were able to get your website up and running.

It's a very positive sign you are already achieving direct bookings on your website, we hope this continues to make up an even larger portion of your reservations this year!

We're glad our agents were able to go above and beyond to help you find the solution to your query. We look forward to seeing you expand your website throughout 2018!

Regarding the tentative booking on inquiries, we have recently updated our system and now, inside your policy settings, you can decide the quote expiry time. The default is one week, but you can change this to suit your properties. If the guest does not accept the quote within this time frame, your calendar will automatically be re-opened. For further details on this matter, please get in touch with your support agent.

Have a great booking-filled year! The Lodgify Team

Super Allround-Lösung zur Selbstvermarktung unseres Ferienhauses

Der Support hat mich bislang positiv überrascht. Dieser ist zwar an der Hotline nur auf Englisch aber dafür sehr ausdauernd und geduldig. Schriftliche Anfragen werden gerne auch in Deutsch beantwortet.
Insgesamt bin ich bislang sehr zufrieden.

Pros

Lodgify umfasst (fast) alles, was ich mir für die Vermarktung gewünscht habe. Es vereint den Website-Baukasten, es administriert die Website-Domain, es bietet umfassende Möglichkeiten zur Verwaltung und Abrechnung von Ferienimmobilien. Ich selbst verwalte damit nur 1 Haus, allerdings lassen sich auch problemlos mehrere Immobilien anbinden.
Super einfach ist auch das Erstellen mehrsprachiger Webseiten. Auch hier gibt es noch etwas Luft nach oben, indem man z.B. die Inhalte der Webseiten auch per Auswahl übersetzen ließe. Habe ich über die STandard-Objektseien hinaus eigene Webseiten entworfen, so muß ich diese derzeit mit einem externen Übersetzungsprogramm übersetzen und in der Zielsprache per drag & drop einfügen. Die Seitenstruktur wird aber in allen Sprachen übernommen und auch die Seitentitel werden automatisch übersetzt. Das Übersetzen im Programm geht bislang nur bei den Standard-Seiten, die die unmittelbare Objektverwaltung administrieren.

Cons

Insgesamt bin ich sehr zufrieden mit meiner Entscheidung für Lodgify! Ich sehe in wenigen Punkten Verbesserungsmöglichkeiten, z.B.:
- die Seite zur Emailkommunikation mit den Gästen könnte übersichtlicher sein
- ich würde mir wünschen, dass der Professional-Zugang schon die Gäste-App enthält. Ich bin mir noch unsicher, ob sich der Aufpreis für die Ultimate-Version für mich lohnt
- die Kalender-Darstellung könnte farbiger oder prägnanter schwarz-weiß-grau sein, insgesamt ist Webseite "Verfügbarkeit" ausbaubar. So wäre es schick, wenn man gleich von dort ausgehend einen Zeitraum markieren und für eine Buchungsanfrage aussuchen könnte
- die Cookie-Policy im Webseite-Baukasten bedürfte eines Updates, so daß man zwischen notwendigen Cookies und Komfort-Cookies wählen kann.
Wishlist:
- 360°-Rundgänge in Verbindung mit Grundrissen anwenderfreundlich als widget im Baukasten integrieren (ich weiß es gibt schon Möglichkeiten z.B. über google)

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).

When I was searching for the software for our business, just like you are doing now, I did the same research and read some reviews here on this platform, and gave it a try, and to be honest, made the best decision by doing that. Because not only I got my self a great deal( subscribed for 50 properties) cost wise, at the same time I got the product that I am extremely happy about, very functional, and gives me all the tools my business needs. Within a month we had a bookable website, and channel management( airbnb, vrbo, expedia booking). It also gives you a feature of i-cal, where you can integrate your listings with the rest of the booking platforms. Wish they open USA support center for quicker replies.

Pros

For starters it comes with free bookable website, with all the basic functions in order to be able to run rentals and business overall is a great feature they provide. Easy and detailed instructions and very quick implementation process. Also the CRM, multi channel management, owner portal, integrated SEO options to name the few, are very helpful and essential and they provide that all plus much more.

Cons

We are within our 3rd month of working with this software and highly recommend to starters or anyone who runs properties on multiple channels. So far so good, and can't really find anything that I am not happy about, except for, our business is located in USA and dates are in Euro mode, but its manageable. Customer service is reachable only via email, and because of the time difference might take few hours for them to respond. They always do respond and fix everything and addressed all the issues we had so far. It is probably due to he fact that they do not have representation in USA which I recommend them to do. But has not been a huge factor for us at all.

Response from Lodgify

Lodgify is our first hotel management system and we are VERY satisfied by our choice. We quickly saw a big increase in direct booking and our custommers love it. As a new business, we decided to use Lodgify website functionalities. It is basic but powerful enough for small hotel or vacation rentals operators. It contains everything you need to bring your business into online booking world and quickly optimize your sales. Sync with Airbnb is very efficient. Thanks to the very responsive and skilled support team !
Unfortunately as our business continue to grows, lack of reporting functionalities will be more and more constraining and it could force our company to change in 2-3 years if no improovement happens on that side.

Pros

- For small operators, this software contains all you need for a first jump into online hotel management system.
- Very good and responsive support team. Employees are skilled not puppets like.
- Fair prices. No hack here !
- Good support in french for french speeking owner like I am.
- Clean interface for both customers and administrators
- Quick learning curve.

Cons

- Lack of professional reporting functionalities.
They propose you to use Zapier automation without saying that It will cost you a Zapier suscription to use reporting and accounting functions with accuracy and proper booking updates when changes occurs.
- No transparency over upcomming features and software version.
