We've reduced our management and time spent handling bookings and manual payments. Previously we had a fair amount of bookings through our old booking system which did not handle credit card payments, so we had to stay on top of those bookings and collect the payments manually.

Pros

Automated responses to bookings, enables credit card payments via Stripe, easy overview of bookings and connecting multiple booking websites easily, as well as keeping information uniform on all booking websites automatically. Also generates a booking website for our own website.
Absolutely love their Multicalendar. Gives a great overview of current bookings.

Guesty is a tool that intent to be a complete solution to properties managers, and it correspond a lot of items, such as the management of listings in some channels directly, the huge data volume it can manage, easy way of reservations and communication management. But it can be way better in some features, like payments and revenue rules. The best part is that the support is always available and the company seems to hear the clients issues and they are always implementing problems solvings according to our experience, so it is a real joining construction.

Pros

The facility of add or remove properties and rooms, the view of all properties in one calendar, the management of different channels chat and mainly the publish of listings trhough some channels directly by Guesty is awesome! Also the possibiity of search a booking using any key information, a name, phone number, channel code is really impressive.

Cons

Some important features does not look developed enough to be implemented, like the triggers for charges, the revenue management rules, simple management reports. All they seems like a good idea that was released before the complete edition, so it is a little frustrating when you try to use it and it does not work.

Alternatives Considered

Rentals United, Cloudbeds and MyVR

Reasons for Choosing Guesty

Because Guesty offered more safety managing the huge volume of data that Cloudbeds were not supporting anymore, and a best views of properties and reports.

I didn't like the customer experience with Guesty.
I didn't like the purchase experience either. I believe software should be priced equally to everyone especially when it's based on a percentual commission.

Pros

I believe Guesty is an incredibly expensive product. They do not display their prices online and it's not a flat rate for every customer. Their rate varies according to what type of meeting you have with their sales team.
I had 3 different meetings with 3 different quotes. There are other PMS systems out there doing what these guys do but much cheaper.

Cons

The price is incredibly high for what they have to offer.

Awesome. Love their responsiveness to feature requests, bugs, etc. The software has made things SO much easier in my day to day management of 80 properties. While there is a bit of a learning curve, that's to be expected with software THIS powerful. Once you get familiar with it, you'll absolutely LOVE it.

Pros

Tons of features in 1 interface to keep me from having to bounce between platforms. The in house damage protection plans are amazing.

Cons

Tedious onboarding process. While they provide you with a TON of support and weekly calls, it's a big deal to unhook 80 properties and get them all plugged in. That will likely be the case with ANY system though, and their guidance thru the process was great
