When intuition pays off

5 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Since our property is so unusual, we have had to work out guest misconceptions with OTA travelers and Innkeepers has been right there to help me avoid bad reviews/cancellations - OTA cancellations are down from 50% in the first year to less than 20%. That is good results. Every step from website setup to getting through our first year, Innkeepers was there when I needed them to pull me off the cliff and set me on a good path where our business is growing and we are getting really fabulous reviews, which we know will build business year by year. Their integrity is unquestionable and there is so much value-added support that I am getting more and more independent as time goes by. I completely trust the advice and marketing I get from every person at Innkeepers and the website gets great comments all the time from our guests.

Vorteile:

Unbeatable price Value-added support for my startup BnB to help us avoid marketing that does not bear fruit Accessible when questions arise Well-thought out applications that are intuitive i.e., the calendar Yield management system will make future business management a snap Reports exportable Marketing/SEO knowledge Gorgeous Website, easy to use for guests on all platforms Extremely stable (no downtime)

Nachteile:

- It takes awhile to become fluent in the system since it is so robust. - Some guests struggle with the reservation system - it's maybe not so obvious that they have to start by entering the dates of stay to have the system work fluidly. - Every once in a while a guest will lose the last step in the reservation process - hard to tell if this is operator error or a loss of connection over a mobile phone or what. Typically they call me and a few minutes on the phone works it out - I've never had an instance where the reservation didn't book.

Unrivaled ease of use with fantastic comprehensive tools

5 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Due to circumstances beyond my control when I began managing the Inn there was no one available to teach or train me at the Inn itself. Innkeeper's Advantage answered all the questions I had and allowed me to learn how to manage the business thanks to the fantastic customer support and software itself working so well.
I honestly could not have succeeded without them.

Vorteile:

As the Innkeeper of a small boutique hotel I rely on using this software several times a day. Color codes and symbols help me very quickly keep track of payments, notes from guests and notes from staff to keep everything humming along no matter how chaotic life gets during high tourist season. The customer service at Innkeeper's Advantage is spectacular. Not only are any concerns addressed immediately, the tech support folks are patient and so often the issue was created by my ignorance and I never feel judged. Quite the opposite. Tutorials are offered at my convenience. The software creator listens and improves on the software often adding new features that create greater ease of use and for the little hotel I manage that leads to greater profits. I really am impressed with how well the software addresses the complexity of keeping track of reservations and payments. I love using the reports feature to help with book keeping. I honestly would be lost without this software.

Nachteile:

Not really a con for Innkeeper's Advantage- with advanced features I need to make the time to have a phone tutorial with tech support. It is always more than worth the effort to make the time!

Great for B&B, not great for hotel

4 letztes Jahr

Vorteile:

They built our hotel website for us. I am pretty sure this is built using an opensource Drupal module.

Nachteile:

It is really made for a B&B. Lists every room. Not possible to book a room type. Integration or reconciling cash was not really possible.

Antwort von Impactiv

Jason, Thank you for taking the time to review our product. Since you have not used our system for almost a year, I want to update you on how it currently works. Innkeeper's Advantage is still great for B&Bs, cottages & vacation rentals. as it has been since 2007. We now also have great functionality to support hotels. Now the system supports online booking by room types (King, Queen, Full, etc.). It automatically optimizes the calendar for the best stay configurations. We have also added a complete self-check-in suite comprised of remote lock connections, e-signing, and automated text messaging. Our extensive cash reports were designed to meet generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and support a full nightly reconciliation process and exports for accounting. Our hotel customers are enjoying these new features at a very competitive price. We hope you have a safe and successful 2021 travel season. Take Care! Cindy Bachmann Innkeeper's Advantage

The EXACT system for my needs (and yours)

5 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Ease of use.

Vorteile:

I've had the opportunity to work with the team at Innkeepers Advantage for quite some time. I wanted to find a company that was interested in helping make my B&B's a success story. I/A was exactly what I was looking for. I didn't want a clunky "pop-up" type reservation system that was designed to replicate my website. I wanted something that was integrated in my website by the same design team that developed my website. In the nearly 5 years of doing business with I/A, I have been able to substantially increase my revenue each year. They are keeping my web content current. The team at I/A does an amazing job of using current data to help my properties stay relevant. How you might ask? One example is their incorporation of AMP mobile. Other software companies have been leery of current data and how it applies to mobile users. I/A is one of the only companies successfully using AMP. My results: 42 mobile bookings in one month. As I check with other B&B owners, no one is achieving those results for their business. If you are serious about your B&B and looking to find a company that will help you increase your business, give your website a fresh look and functional presence, and incorporate a user friendly property management system that produces unbelievable results, and personal customer service: then Innkeepers Advantage is truly your total business solution. And guess what? Their services are affordable for your current budget.

18 yrs as a B&B - using many hosts/systems - 10 years ago we found I/A - been an amazing experience!

5 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: It has everything I have ever wanted or needed to run our Bed and Breakfast.

Vorteile:

I can do absolutely anything I want to tweak my website and everything works the way it's supposed to work. Incredible people to work with - personal attention - always available - immediately take care of anything I have managed to mess up - their rates are well beyond reasonable - the software enables me to edit anything I want to edit - like seasonal date changes, rate changes, policies, whatever. I would be happy to chat with anyone considering Innkeepers Advantage as their web-host - web-designer - and online reservation system - it all works - never miss a booking - they have platforms available for all the Online Travel Agencies like Booking.com, Trip-Adviser, Expedia, Hotels.com, and makes a special Trivago connection available as well. Never a "double booking" by trying to find other ways to get reservations. It can all be channeled directly thru the software from Innkeepers Advantage. Rooms are immediately taken out of our online inventory. I can block rooms out, change rates, charge different rates for the weekend, apply multi-night discounts automatically, and their software computes all the math. They even have "coupons" I can set up to be applied in checkout for all the discounts that prospective guests feel they are entitled to. No more phone calls - they have everything they need to know right in front of them and book right online. Like I said - amazing!!

Truly an AMAZING product

5 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

Pretty much everything. The rate\yield management piece is incredible, as well as the interface to connected systems to allow you to make keep all your rates in synch with 3rd party systems. The graphical front end is a blessing and ease of use, so simple to utilize all the cool features in this software. It changes minimum nights for you automatically if it detects a gap in the availability calendar which is so cool. It allows you to create coupons to discount rooms, provides online gift certificates, a gift shop, and so many features which sets this software apart from all the rest. I've been in the B&B business for 14 years and have changed booking software so many times. So many products out there dont live up to all the hype they initially sell you to get you on board. IA without a doubt fulfills all the needs you could possibly want in a booking engine. They also built my front end website, which was superior to what i had previously built by a website design company. I cant say enough good things about the product. It truly is a total business solution for the Bed & Breakfast industry. Lastly, the support you get is top of the line. Many other products I've used get you started and then you're kind of on your own to figure it out. Cindy and the support staff ALWAYS make time for their customers. She has spent countless hours with me going over existing functionality as well as teaching me new features. Always there when you need their help. Great job guys.

Gold Standard

5 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Our overall experience with InnKeeper's Advantage was akin to a family, never like a business. We've grown and with our growth, so have they, and their product features just get better every year.

Vorteile:

Ease of use, professional appearance, prompt call back for service concerns, secure banking platform and easy to operate and pull reports from. We started with Innkeeper's Advantage back in 2011 and never looked back. From the day they rolled out their systems, their one-on-one training got us operational in 24 hours. They've adapted over the years by continually updating their back-of-house menus and reports. They've increased our cash flow and have us using a virtual collection system that has helped stay very liquid. Their support is second to none and take ownership of your concern the moment they are contacted. This service is the gold standard of Bed and Breakfast websites. We could not have been as successful as we were without our InnKeeper's Advantage!

Nachteile:

At first, blocking rooms or making mass updates was clunky but since last year, they've make that task very easy...so by now, I can't think of any dislikes.

Great product that they keep evolving and awesome customer support.

5 vor 4 Jahren

Vorteile:

I love that the reservation system and the website are seamless, meaning the user never leaves my website. Innkeepers Advantage is constantly adding new functionality to the product while keeping the cost very reasonable. Their customer support is awesome and timely. Being a Software Engineer myself, I did quite a lot of due diligence when looking to replace my reservation system back in 2013. When I found Innkeepers Advantage, it was a no brainer! The other reservations systems cost more and did less. Yes, you can get cheaper reservation systems. But I guarantee none will have the functionality of Innkeepers Advantage or the level of Customer Support of Innkeepers Advantage. As with most software, you get what you pay for. Innkeepers Advantage is perfectly priced. And, with all the new features added, you can tell they are serious about making it the best product on the market. I highly recommend any accommodation looking for a new reservation system to give Innkeepers Advantage a serious look.

Nachteile:

That I didn't develop it myself. When I am done with innkeeping, I hope they will consider allowing me to work for them! Yes, I'm serious about that!

Great software for the price and support!

5 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: We love it!

Vorteile:

Integration was seamless, the interface is super easy to use once you get a training on it- not exactly intuitive but the customer support is quick and attentive and helps resolve issues promptly. Its visually very appealing and the graphic design team has a great eye. Very affordable and there's even an option for a monthly marketing package where the team writes blogs and posts on your behalf to keep the website at the top of the google search bars!

Nachteile:

My only complaint is that I would like to have more access to updating header images/ text but I think that might open up a can of worms so perhaps it's best to let the professionals make the bigger changes to the website so I don't mess it up. An App to use Innkeepers on a smart phone would be stellar !

Antwort von Impactiv

vor 2 Jahren

Thanks so much for your comments Elsa, and you are right that the header of any website is a little more challenging to work on and keep it looking good. We are always happy to help you with that. Also, we do have a mobile administrative interface that is great for handling reservations when you are not in your office. You just need to log into your system from your phone to get started. We appreciate your business! Cindy Bachmann Innkeepers Advantage

An amazing experience for the inexperienced

5 letztes Jahr

Vorteile:

When I started, I knew nothing and was totally intimidated by the mountain of learning I needed to get started in this business. The training was so thorough, that I was armed with the basics and ready to go very quickly. This is so complete and user friendly. Everything I knew I needed plus everything I didn't know I needed that has made my job smooth, and efficient. I love that everything is monitored for me and kept safe. I love that the details of tracking the details, of reports such as sales, occupancies of each room and house , taxes, gift shop and gift certificates etc. are there at a click of a button. My favorite is the reservation process and calendar that never lets me down.

Nachteile:

There are times that I couldn't figure out how to reverse mistakes of my own user errors, but the support is fabulous and always gets me up and going

We've found this to be our favorite overall reservation calendar for doing our B&B business.

5 vor 4 Jahren

Vorteile:

It's taken us several years to find a property management system as efficient and cost effective as Innkeepers Advantage. It allows both us as property owners and the managers behind the screen so to speak the ability to control every aspect of their property. We can manage reservations, rate plans, reporting, emails, even taxes and more all from one place. Most recently we've been able to easily check-in and check-out guests with texting and by using our intuitive dashboard. We can even manage reservations with our drag-and-drop calendar. This kind of reporting allows us to get an overview of our property while also giving us the ability to dive into the details.

Nachteile:

Living in Hawaii the 6 hours time difference is sometimes frustrating but other than that most problems are cheerfully resolved by the next day.

Top notch company to work with!

5 vor 4 Jahren

Vorteile:

It is easy for our guests to make their reservation online. The availibilty is shown in real time and there is no chance of double booking a room. Guests may add on many packages to their reservation. The system sends out customized confirmation, reminder and thank you emails, with the ability to send more if needed. Our site and booking engine link directly with OTA's, seamlessly. There is an option to create coupon codes for special discounts. Customer service is incredible! Our mobile AMP site is the bomb! Team are on the cutting edge of technology and are always striving to impliment new features that are of the utmost importance to their clients.

Nachteile:

I can find no cons to using this software. Always addresses any concerns I have immediately.

Kommentare: We are so fortunate to have found Innkeeper's Advantage as we were setting up a new B&B business. [SENSITIVE CONTENT] and her team bring together the right array of skills with in-depth knowledge of the field. Not only were they able to create our system as well as our website, they offered advice gained through their vast experience. Any questions or user error are met with immediate solutions, not matter when we call on them for help. Our business success is directly related to the work of Innkeeper's Advantage.

Vorteile:

The reservation system is intuitive, easy to use, accurate. Everything I need from reservations, guest info, reports and payment to the website created for us is quickly and easily accessible.

The Innkeepers Advantage team is amazing. With their help the reservation software was put to use in no time. The software has gone beyond my expectations on what it provides. OTA's can be channeled through the software. Fantastic!!

What a time saver this software has been. Thank you for making this transition easier than I could have imagined.
