Pros

Love the additions and notifications of them. Price point per property is perfect and best I have seen.
What I like the most about Bookerville, is the ease of use and friendly navigation system. And customer support availability when I need it.
It perfectly suits our needs for booking software AND automated emails. The company is very responsive to questions and are easy to work with.

Pros

We used the product for the trial period and there is a lot to be learned about how it can best be used but the help team ensure everything is clear and work fare for you.
I like that such many features are included in the subscription. Your Porter has provided an opportunity for me to explore several opportunities for growing our hospitality business.
Honestly I love the features. I love that you can have multiple listings and and not have to go on multiple websites.

Cons

Parts of the template for setting limits on stays can be confusing. I will say, when I have had any issues, there is always a prompt response.
Also having trouble getting my calendar on my actual website despite a few email exchanges with the customer rep.
Occasional spam blocking of automated emails from certain email services.

Cons

Paying $100 / year extra for the booking engine to utilise your own domain name is ridiculous in my opinion.
It is sometimes a bit hard to navigate. Occasionally gets stuck in one spot.
Sometimes there is a delay in the automated messaging more than hour. Even that I stop the automated messages, sometimes the software sends it.

A Great Booking Service

Reviewed 10 years ago

I would recommend Bookerville to anyone that wants a most professional website for their customers.

Pros

John Amato and Bookerville are absolutely A#1. He operates his business the way I did operate for 30 years. He has a product that is easy to use, keeps you up to date on any booking you have and he is almost instant in getting back to you if you have any concerns. He is the best ..

Cons

I have no negative cons for this business.

Great software. No regrets.

Reviewed 4 years ago

We have used Bookerville for years for our log cabin rental business. It has been great.

Pros

Support is the best of any software that we've ever owned or bought in to. The support is quick, responsive, and genuinely interested in helping make the software as effective as it can be.

Cons

The integrations with other services aren't totally seamless (but they're really good and Bookerville keeps on top of necessary upgrades). IMO I think that the bigger rental sites benefit from making these integrations difficult.

Bookerville is simple, straightforward software, perfect for the small vacation rental owner

Reviewed a year ago

My highest priorities are that the software: * Has a great design and is straightforward to use * Allows me to automate the end-to-end workflow process for bookings without a lot of fuss * That I have confidence that the software is going to work without a lot of bugs, errors and workarounds * If I get in a bind and need help, I will be able to contact the vendor and get the support I need * Allows me to keep the investment in my existing web site * The subscription and commission prices are not going to eat up all of my profits

Pros

Bookerville is well-designed, intuitive and straightfoward. If you have even a rudimentary exposure to vacation rental software, Bookerville is a snap to learn and set up with an effective wizard to step you through. There is also thorough online user help text. The hands-on training required with other software vendors to set up and learn how to use is not really even needed here. None of the functions...

Cons

No critical issues, but: The guest booking calendar does not automatically switch between desktop and mobile views (one workaround is to have a "change to mobile view" button). Bookerville's flexibility has a price, requiring extra time for data maintenance: * On other vendor software, to change the nightly rate for a range of dates, you simply change the rate on a line in the rate table. Bookerville...

Useful, But Expensive.

Reviewed 6 years ago

I have been using this software for the last four years for a single vacation property I own. Every feature that I needed was in the software plus many features I never used. It does make it possible for a typical owner to manage rentals without going through a rental agency. The annual subscription fee has gone up by 32% over the last 3 years. They should offer a lower price version with less features for those with only one property. Wasn't planning on renewing for the fifth year unless I get a better rate.

Pros

Makes it possible to manage rentals without a rental agency.

Cons

It is expensive and a typical user probably won't need all of the features. Subscription rates has been increasing every year.

Vendor response

This otherwise excellent customer (we love you Stephen!) is unhappy that we were gradually raising prices on older (grandfathered) accounts. But the price we offered him is still less than half the current rate, which is itself well below our competition's pricing, per our research.

Excellent Product!

Reviewed 6 years ago

I have been using Bookerville since 2014 and I cannot say enough good things about the software, my workflow using their software and the customer service I receive. Bookerville allows as much or as little customization as you want for most templates. Automatized e-mails are easy to set up and safe me tons of time. I only have one property and I manage it myself, but I would hate to go back to doing it all without Bookerville! The only issue I have with the software is that setting the rates, length of stay and rules for check in days is always a bit cumbersome but I only do it once a year so it is no big deal. Customer service is fast and personalized and in the USA!

Pros

flexibility to customize it to my exact needs for each booking if needed

Cons

setting up the rates, length of stay and check in date restrictions - I only do it once a year so I have had to write instructions to remind myself of the steps involved - a bit cumbersome

Great software for managing reservations

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Helps to manage our reservations accurately that are listed on multiple sites, makes booking directly a breeze, reports are easy to use and great.

Cons

When running some reports there are glitches when pro-rating the dates. For example if you pro-rate by month and check in date it will not the bookings that were made in the prior month, even though it only counted say one day of the reservation when running that report for the previous month. So report totals are not accurate when using that function.
