Cloudbeds Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Cloudbeds's features:

Baris Gencoglu

Easy to use PMS with great booking channel manager

2020-11-21

Cloudbeds is a great solution for us to provide multiple booking channel management with its multiple language and multiple currency integrations however still needs improvement in terms of number of languages and currencies it supports and integration with physical pos which leads to slow operations like in our case.

Pros

Really saves our time with its automised multiple booking channel management system especially its automatic rate management helps us to optimize our revenue by providing the optimal price for rooms over time.

Cons

Acomos doe not have integration with the physical pos that we are using which costs us time in operations to manually input the credit card details.

Good once all set up

2019-01-24

Pros

Nice all in one hospitality management software that distributes room availability, sales inventory, and collects payments.

Cons

No real complaints. Once everything's set up in MyAllocator, which is a challenge, things go pretty smoothly.

Start up/ switch from Rezovation

2019-09-07

The girls from support in Ukraine try very hard and are easy to communicate with.

Pros

The introduction sounded promising and easy, channel management is good.

Cons

No direct phone consultation to help with start up problems, and to set up transfer. Credit card data was not transferred from Rezovation, misrepresentation from the start.

Laura Shioli

Nice features and pricing, but needs better support.

2020-01-01

Managing the channel reservations has become much easier, and managing reservations from our website has become easier.

Pros

Our customers like the Booking Engine, and we like the integration with the sites like Booking.com and Expedia.

Cons

We really dislike the arrangement for Technical Support. There is NO option for immediate, live support. We cannot get a live person immediately for any support issue. We always have to submit an email request. We can request an urgent call back and sometimes it happens within a few hours and sometimes it is several hours later. We often have to go back and forth with multiple emails just to have the support rep or "coach" understand what we are talking about. We worried about this arrangement but took a chance.

A great program for the money

2019-07-21

While I am not yet utilizing its entire potential, it has made my reservations and guest management far easier to manage.

Pros

This program is easy to learn, easy to use.

Cons

There are a few system reservation management menus that the user should be able to customize.

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.

Great at some things, missing many

2018-08-12

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.

Cons

NO integration with a credit card swiping device.

Lot of problems

2021-01-21

It's really a shame that a great software is weaken by pushy sales strategy, that make the software less efficient and create a lot of friction using it.

Pros

Automated payment processing work great.

Cons

Also they block all integration that could potentially compete with they own module, meaning you cannot chose for example your own yield management software, as no integrations with third party software is possible.

Cloudbeds Review

2019-10-19

Overall I am very pleased with my experience. The support team is very helpful and the system works for what I need.

Pros

The option to add additional services and costs to the room. The Dashboard to view bookings due to come in on the day.

Cons

If a booking was made after the reception closes but before midnight the reservation won't appear and we need to search for it to assign room and action booking.

The training period could be shortened since it is easy to understand.

It does not connect with Jaran, Rakuten or other OTAs in Japan.

Not all its cracked up to be

2019-05-15

This means that all discounts/specials need to be managed separately within each channel - very time consuming.

Pros

Stripe integration. Custom email templates.

Reports lack functionality/customisation. Booking engine has a poor layout for the customer.

Pros

- East to learn - Very intuitive - Quick on boarding - Great Channel Manager - Excellent support

Cons

- Not available in German Language - No Accounting integration - Invoicing format is not customizable

Great features & functionality

2018-04-19

Overall great product, but in my opinion, it is difficult to get it up and running smoothly unless you have your own tech personnel to devote to it.

Pros

Its an almost all inclusive package to manage our units, reservations, check in/check outs, customer information, etc.

Cons

The rates and availability (to me) are very complex and difficult to work through setting up so that it works for your own bookings and the booking channels.

2019-10-18

I really like that I have one product that can manage my bookings across multiple interfaces and booking platforms.

Pros

It is easy to make bookings and create reports. We've not had any issues with this system in the year we have been using it.

Cons

I can't see all of my room inventory on one screen.

Only suitable for very small businesses without revenue management goals

2019-08-08

Very frustrating, frequent issues and glitches, would not recommend for fast paced environment as the system is not reliable.

Pros

Easy to use, some features like the search function where you can search for a name or any reservation number, both direct and 3rd party, are good.

Cons

There is no revenue management functionality, you can only have 1 rate mapped to channels and they work on product level, not rate level - so you can't even close out a rate type, only the entire room type. No possibility of setting up any policies - you can only add text.
