Pros: You can check pretty much everything and status recode etc. Printable. It has also inventory control provisions.

Cons: Not really. But one thing I should really like say that in the of enter the guest information need to click at least 2 times . If it fixed it will be the best software in the market.

Pros: Ease of use, adaptability to some of our more esoteric problems like two unrelated individuals in one room, each paying for his own accommodations.

Cons: The learning curve is pretty steep, but once you are experienced, the software is intuitive.

Overall: I work for a small 14-room hotel and we use Easy InnKeeping software. It's not exactly geared to our operation, but the GraceSoft staff have been very accommodating about adding enhancements to help lighten our load. Their help by chat is very, very good, with technicians who are committed to improving your experience and knowledge. I would recommend Easy InnKeeping for smaller hotel spaces.

Recommendations to other buyers: Watch the YouTube instructional videos. They're extremely helpful.

Pros: easy to use even with little training

Cons: the extra clicks. any changes made to a reservation have to be made one at a time with time for the change to load before making changes in other fields.

Overall: I am fairly new to this software but find it to be fairly intuitive and user friendly. There are some areas (the calendar function for instance) where it seems like a lot of extra clicking.

Recommendations to other buyers: Add more Third Party companies to the Direct Booking

Pros: Ability to enter reservation via cell phones, iPads, etc. while away from our B and B

Cons: Capturing customer data into excel to perform analysis on my own ... but I have not discussed this
with customer service.

Overall: Uptime is great ... meets all of our needs ... customer support is excellent ... time saver, especially with repeat customers ... love the ability to quickly send a confirmation to our guests. We helped sell your system to another local bed and breakfast!

Recommendations to other buyers: We do not allow customers to see our availability ... the switch is off ... We did not know that we could do this until we had an indepth conversation with a sales person.

Overall: For people who are not computer savvy, this is a good program to start. The challenges: not being able to produce the reports that I need even if I customize it, since you cannot get all categories in the report. Sometimes follow-up have not been the best with the issues I had asked to be assisted.

Pros: Visual view of bookings across units by month.

Cons: Sometimes a bit finicky on my iphone. I use 90% of time on my laptop and use ipad for bookings when I am mobile. The size of the ipad is perfect for the monthly view graphic which is a wonderful way to check availability when away from home.

Overall: I have been using this product for running my vacation rentals and b&b for over 15 years. Although I use a variety of booking services, Easy Innkeeping is my master software for managing reservations, running financial reports and coordinating cleaning services for my properties. Can't live without it!

Recommendations to other buyers: There is lots of flexibility here as we have proven my running very different properties in the same system.

Pros: It is very user friendly.

Cons: Some of the changes that have been made were not made known to the users, so when we tried to make changes in a reservation it wouldn't allow it.

Overall: I moved this little inn from pencil and paper to having software. It has been a great experience getting everything online. The improvements that they continue to make keep making this more and more user friendly. I have recommended it several times and will continue to do so.

Pros: Easy to use. Integrates with our website so customers can book on line.

Cons: When entering data, refresh rate can be slow. For example, when entering a reservation, refreshes after entering data in each field, rather than after the information for the reservation is completed.

Overall: It took some time to set up, but now that it is set up it's an easy software to use. Ties in with our website easily, customers can book directly from our web site.

Pros: I like that multiple users can be in the program at the same time.

Cons: There are some problems that can't be solved without contacting customer support. That's a pain.

Overall: Easy Innkeeping can be a little buggy. That said, I'm not sure our establishment is the right fit for Easy Innkeeping. We have many, many group reservations and they repeat year after year. The program does not seem to be built for groups. We paid for an enhancement for our ease of use that shows the group name when you mouse over a reservation. That improvement really helped. Customer service is good, especially Benjamin. Sometimes it will look like they've answered your chat and a long period goes by before there is any action, or there may be no action at all. One day, I waited over an hour after it said they would be right with me. I gave up and tried to figure the problem out myself. On my wish list: when you mouse over a group, I wish it would show the group #.

Recommendations to other buyers: We have people who stay 2 to a room but pay separately. Definitely use the A&B option if you have that situation.

Pros: Ease of use. Colors and icons are clearly visible.

Cons: Name field won't allow hyphens or any marks.

Overall: I love most of the system. I bought it years ago because of its ease of use and style. I needed something with icons and pictures that would trigger my memory!
2 small issues.
Guest Name field won't accept anything with hyphens or extra marks. So hyphenated names or names with umlauts etc never work. It's very odd.
Secondly the viewing pain for CC done allow one to use when updating a payment or refunding. I have to pull out a paper to write the number down, then retype it into the field. Seems like there should be an easier way.

Comments: These people are very nice on the phone. I paid for a year in advance and months after I paid for it the software was still so full of bugs it was unusable. We tried to get it fixed over and over again. I tried to get my money back after 6 months but ended up with nothing. They are hard (impossible sometimes) to reach on the phone. They are big on promises but short on delivery. Don't waste your time or money here. There are plenty of reputable software companies. These guys are thieves.

Comments: But it seems to be in its infancy. Not sure if this is a startup company with a great future or an ancient technology on its way out. Parts of this software seems to have some great features but the implementation is sloppy and buggy. We have been evaluating this company for quite a few months now and needless to say we are concerned about its future. Sometimes they miss the mark with some of the most basic features but then excel in other areas. Our confidence has been tested several times and unfortunately we feel it is not ready for prime time for larger companies. Might be ok for a mom and pop with a couple of customers a months but larger hotels and resorts will most likely find it falls short on speed, accuracy and customer service. The most troubling aspect we ran into was having customer service, who is the same guy over and over, eventually just ignore us over bugs that they could not figure out.

Vendor Response

by GraceSoft on November 23, 2016

We are pleased to receive feedback. We have always valued client feedback in the continued improvement of Easy InnKeeping software services. Our core product, Easy InnKeeping has been in the market since 1999, and the features you are referring to as `excelling┬┐ I would guess refer to some of those features. According to our records, you did have some challenges with implementation of a newer interface called `Direct Connect┬┐ which connects our Easy InnKeeping service with OTAs like Expedia and Booking.com . We certainly apologize for the frustration that you and a few other clients experienced during implementation of this interface end of 2015. We have since been able to address these issues and our implementations of the Direct Connect interface since the 2nd quarter of 2016 have proven stable and smooth.

As a standalone it's pretty good BUT if you connect to Expedia, beware!

Comments: I've been on this for about 5 months now and it was a toss up between WebRezPro, and I'm wondering if I should have gone with the latter. Neither company could convert my data from Rezovation besides the customer table, so I lost a decade of history. I went with Easy Innkeeping because they had the ability to set up a different child/adult extra person rate. It's amazing how many software packages don't. The Easy Innkeeping refresh rate is annoyingly slow, I just expect it to be less than a second. I also don't like that they maintain their own hardware, I would rather they put it on Amazon or Google's server farm, like Clock PMS. They don't charge for bookings over their own system, but $3 for reservations which come through Expedia. The main problem is that data doesn't come over right. The entire amount shows up in the daily rate, no tax or other items, so I have to re-enter it. And I've asked numerous times. And, get this, if you want to set up a minimum stay on weekends, you have to create a separate seasonal rate for every weekend! if you have a Bnb like me, this is not the software you want. They were able to update it via a script on the back end, but it's such an easy thing to code for since they already have a way to apply a rate to the days of the week, it should be just a matter of checking off a box where you want to apply the minimum nights. Tech support is mostly by chat, their little window will pop up saying 'approximate wait time is one minute'....I've gotten that message and waited 20 minutes without result.
They are constantly improving the software, and uptime has been very good. They run on top of some other software so that when an employee logs in, their password displays in the open in the URL for a second or two. WTF, you may ask? Well, yes, so if you're worried about your employees hacking into another person's account, this software isn't for you either.
Oh, I paid a year in advance, and for 2 months haven't had time to verify the expedia bookings were correct, so they cut off my access to the software even though I paid for a year, over a $30 past due bill. And they cut it off at night, when they don't have anyone available to take a payment. So yeah, I'm going to start looking around.

Comments: We are so happy with the service and attention we have received from Easy Inn Keeping since we purchased the software. We have a very unique product that required a lot of time, custom changes and care. The associates at Easy Inn Keeping always went above and beyond to help create a solution that would work well for our business. They were very patient, knowledgeable and kind.

The actual software is very easy to use. Although there is a learning curve, once it's implemented, it can completely change the efficiency of your business. They offered all the services we needed to successfully set up a new reservation software, online booking engine and exposure to the GDS.

We will always recommend Easy Inn Keeping, not just for a good product, but for the excellent care and attention you are sure to receive.

Thanks for the support

Pros: We recently shopped the internet and interviewed countless lodge owners in an effort to find the perfect application for us to convert to. We found it with Gracesoft and Easy Innkeeping. The entire staff knows us and never is too busy to stop and help.
The owner actually came to see us one day, just to help understand what we were all about. Thanks Gideon. Yall are doing a great job and thanks for all the help.

Cons: Point of sale integration, which Gideon is working on and we want to be a test site for it.

Overall: Highly recommend Gracesoft for your property management, booking and all your resort related software.
