Pros

We love the constant features that are being added regularly. The ability for owners and tenants having their own portal is great.
Appfolio is a great software where we can keep track of all of the properties we manage. It has great functionality and features to keep track of all of the important information we need.
This software is just amazing. I work in the property management industry, and this software makes it so simple to manage all of our client's portfolios effectively and easily.

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

With everything being automated the lack of a quick response from a human can be frustrating. The vacancy advertising link is also very frustrating.
The transition was the worst experience we have had transitioning software and it's creating a lot of operating difficulties.
Would prefer if the tenants had pop up warnings and info when they are report in maintenance.

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.

Lodgify partner since 2016 and growing with it

Reviewed 4 years ago

I have grown our company Mondosol scaling from 10 to 100 properties allowing more direct bookings and control overall

Pros

I like the website builder, channel manager, reservation system. I also like that I can receive payments on the percentage I decide and I can communicate with the guest with automatic messages.

Cons

Improving customer service is a must and they are working on with new agents. Making it easier to work with sub users as a property manager or simply giving access to staff or others. I would live a better integration with other channel manager

Vendor response

Excellent tool

Reviewed 4 years ago

Property management and property website.

Pros

Full integration with Airbnb and easy configuration of rates and availability. One of my favorite things is you can configure a new rate for dates that used to be oart of a different rate plan before first having to remove those dates from said rate plan. Support is great, they respond quickly to all inquiries.

Cons

Overall its a great tool, my biggeat pain point, if you could call it that, is that it imports reservations from ical for sutes such as HomeWay as unavailable only instead of notating this as a reservation along with the name and ical source even if detailed information (i.e prices) are not available.

Vendor response

Hi Andrea, thanks for leaving us such a wonderful five-star review! It's fantastic to hear you are so pleased with our smooth Airbnb integration and our support team. Thank you for the feedback regarding calendar import from HomeAway. We will share this with the wider team to keep in mind for future updates to our software. Thanks for supporting Lodgify! All the best, the Lodgify Team

Loving Lodgify

Reviewed 5 months ago

I love Lodgify. I recently moved over my 2nd property and an 99% sure I'll onboard our 3rd property in the summer. [SENSITIVE CONTENT] was a fabulous onboarding specialist.

Pros

Lodgify is very user friendly and I love that you can do a lot yourself.

Cons

Customizing the checkout page and think improving the website builder would be helpful. You can really only change things if you know how to write code.

Vendor response

Hello Valerie, Thank you so much for your wonderful review about our software and our team. We are glad that you found an easy and integrative solution for your vacation rental business. Can't wait for you to onboard your third property! Best Wishes, the Lodgify Team

Great!

Reviewed a year ago

It’s a good experience to deal with Lodgify, someone is always at the end of the phone which is something I know I need. My property is on booking.com also and in comparison booking.com are useless, no support whatsoever. I’m glad I made Lodgify my channel manager, makes life a lot easier.

Pros

I really like everything about using Lodgify. I must admit, I didn’t to start with as I’m not even remotely technologically minded. I didn’t even know what a widget was and I found trying to build a website all a bit confusing, but the customer service team guided me through the process and are there at the end of the phone every time I get a bit stuck when I want to make changes, so I feel very supported. I will definitely continue to use Lodgify while I run a BnB x

Cons

Right now I struggling to think of anything I don’t like about Lodgify.

Vendor response

Intuitively finding features. Needs a chat function.

Easy to use website design

Reviewed 6 years ago

As a property owner and vacation rental manager, I was looking to get a bit more control over my property than that which is currently offered through many booking websites. At the same time, I regularly field phone calls from website design companies. In researching the best plan for my business, I found Lodgify and have been happy with the ease of use and customer service. I still rely on booking websites for about 75% of my bookings, but love that I can point potential guests to my own website.
