Pros

Bookster was very easy to setup and include into our own web site content. Their online help was very good and very responsive.
Great customer support, very responsive and friendly. Extensive booking analytics (Including Google Analytics).
Great tool for bulk addition of promo codes, discounts, extras and more. Suitable for different kind of accommodation.

Pros

I love the price of Smartbnb as it's very affordable for anyone doing short term rentals. And the support has always been quick and amazing.
Good feature mix that add value to a property management business. Automated messaging with a good level of sophistication & ease of use.
No other messaging tool compares to this and it's automated 95% of my communication, and given me over 800 reviews on OTA's praising how good our communication is.

Cons

I am impatient for some more tools to be developed to assist with multiple property management.
Frankly, that's a bit arrogant - in this game, Bookster is not the Daddy.
I think us renters all have the same feelings toward Booking.com I hate their system. Well, good news, Bookster removes that PAIN.

Cons

Only issue I had was the scheduling of a 'bad review. I had it all ready to go, but it failed to submit to Airbnb for some reason.
Lack of partner integrations. Should further stride to becoming a one stop shop for short term rentals.
I don't like that there are two dashboards. It is frustrating to click on metrics or other features and be toggled to an entirely different page where I have to login again.
