Great tool to manage guest booking and more

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: Great product & great support staff

Pros:

- fantastic support team behind. - solid, trustworthy company behind the software. - software that fullfills my booking need and more: -- coordinate who has booked on Airbnb and booking.com to avoid doublebooking -- make webpage free via Your Porter App system (they also offer to use own domain for a fee) --Automation of day to day actions, like sending welcome email -possible to test it out before buying (also good because one has not started to earn money yet, so the tool helps one make money first before asking for money). - I only have one listing and the company support me having many questions even though I am very small w/only 1 listing.

Cons:

Have nothing negative to say. It is just a very good tool with extremely good and helpful support staff.

Alternatives Considered: Hostaway, Guesty and Lodgify

Reasons for Switching to Guesty For Hosts: 1/ Open regarding pricing. 2/ Easy to just start and not having to wait after the weekend to have an interview or demo and maybe hopefully then getting the price of the product. 3/ Free test period 4/ Seemed serious and not an extremely big cooperation that would not take me who has just one listing seriously. 5/ The research I did indicated this is a up and comping company.

Excellent Host Platform

5.0 5 months ago

Comments: Excellent. We have recommended Guesty to several friends who have just recently gotten in to vacation rentals.

Pros:

We love that everything is in one place for managing properties

Cons:

that the guest isn't required to include their email address as well as phone number. We like to send our guestbook our via email ahead of time so that they can see what's in the area, places to eat, and requirements before they arrive.

Transitioning from Jurny to Guesty

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: So far so very good, the technology is top of the line and the team behind it even more.

Pros:

A full suite of services with great support staff, not only the technology is top of the line but the ease of configuration as well. Also, Guesty is one of the very few companies offering a complete solution that includes guest communications

Cons:

Nothing so far. As we move forward I am sure there will be things that will need to be addressed, specially as they continue integrating AI into the tool, but so far everything I have requested I have been satisfied

Broken Vrbo Integration

3.0 12 months ago

Comments: As of this review (June 12th, 2023), I would recommend using a different platform if planning to list on sites outside of AirBnb. The bugs I experienced in my 2 weeks were too severe, slow, and difficult to resolve. I don't have a problem using buggy software until it starts affecting the basic task at hand; unfortunately, I believe Guesty For Hosts is a software that was rolled out too early and could cause more harm than good to a customer.Overall: 3/5 starsUser Interface: 3/5 stars (Mobile Included)AirBnb Integration: 4.5/5 starsVrbo Integration: 2/5 starsCustomer Support Speed/Reliability: 1/5 stars

Pros:

Syncing calendars between AirBnb and Vrbo. This worked most of the time, but I did have multiple issues with Vrbo reservations lagging to show on customer-facing calendars. This led to an instance of a double booking. Ultimately, I "resolved" this issue by disabling Instant Bookings-- therefore, all reservations are filtered manually.

Cons:

Guesty's integration into Vrbo is broken to put it simply. To start, it was slow to integrate as it took ~3 days of downtime before my Vrbo posting was manageable again (if you integrate before your rental season, this shouldn't be a problem). Once integrated, Guesty attempted to deploy my AirBnb listing to the Vrbo platform but botched the job as it modified the Vrbo listing to have 13 bedrooms opposed to the 2 bedrooms my AirBnb displays (AirBnb has a feature to assign pictures to each room, and somehow the 13 rooms in my house each were listed as bedrooms on Vrbo).Another issue I continue to see is that Vrbo reservation lag to update in Guesty's database (and one time not populating in the database at all). If Instant Booking is enabled and you're in a popular area, you will observe scheduling conflicts.Lastly and potentially the biggest issue of Guesty, is the limited Customer Support. There's no phone number to call and it operates on an "email ticket" basis-- so a day or two can go by before hearing back from them. This can be detrimental when mixing the previously mentioned bugs into time-sensitive scenarios. With that being said, once I was able to schedule a video call with their Customer Support, I was matched with someone who was helpful-- you can just tell they're heavily outmatched with all the issues they're receiving.

Guesty for Hosts has made my life easier

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: So far so good. I like the synced calendar.

Pros:

it keeps my rental reservations on one calendar and syncs my 3 platforms.

Cons:

It is not as user friendly as I need at times.

Alternatives Considered: Hostaway

Reasons for Switching to Guesty For Hosts: I only had 1 listing and other channel managers had a minimum number of listings in order to be able to be used. Guesty had a free trial.
