Pros

The support has an amazing actitud and vibe. They are on top of things to help the user.
After years of use, my favorite thing about Checkfront is the helpful support team. They always provide detailed, competent and helpful answers.
Ease of use, very intuitive. I was nervous about the quality of the support after our free trial expired, but have found Checkfront staff to be very helpful and responsive to all of my questions.

Pros

I am super impressed with Lodgify. I purchased it to start managing our vacation rental home ourselves and it has been so impressive from the start.
The software is pretty easy to use, once you get the hang of it. My favorite thing about this company is the amazing and awesome support team.
I liked the Website Builder the most as it was easy to use and allowed me to quickly create a great looking website with good landing pages.

Cons

Extremely disenchanted with the service. TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE TO BLOW CUSTOMERS OFF--how UNPROFESSIONAL.
Monthly cost is quite high- we are a very small business and no discounts available and packages unable to be tailored to our needs so we are paying for things we do not require.
During covid, the hibernation plan means that your website goes offline.

Cons

I have had dozens of guests message me about dates that were unavailable and were confused and frustrated.
The text editor for the section “direction” is disastrous which lead to an unpleasant guest experience when they receive "directions" in their automatic emails.
It has a few errors, especially once you make an accounting statement. Then the notifications you can synchronized it but you don’t receive what the system it is sending to the clients.

Checkfront

I have being using Checkfront for almots 5 years, and overall it answers my needs

Reviewed 5 years ago

I can manage remotly my short term rental buisness

Pros

Checkfront is helping me to manage a small holiday resort and it's like a minivan, not really attractive but efficient. You can include some add ons that makes it even more performant. Good support and friendly communication

Cons

A bit clunky and the front side, better than others but not up to date compare to Lodgify. Rate management can be a pain and not yet compatible with Zappier.
