In spite of the 2020 global slowdown, both tourism and the entire travel industry have long and firmly secured their place online. The variety of accommodation offerings goes far beyond such aggregator giants as Booking or Airbnb. Local hotel owners choose to invest in their own websites (and some of them can be easily built with the next free Elementor themes) for these substantial reasons:
- An own website gives much more design flexibility than any channel manager: you can display any content in whatever way you need;
- Many guests take advantage of the fact that OTAs allow free cancellation at the last minute (especially these days). Having your own booking website allows you to decide on the necessity of the first fee and its amount.
- Customer’s trust is likely to grow as they see a professionally-built website page with the proper booking system (for instance, the WordPress Hotel Booking plugin);
With the popularity of ready-to-go solutions (in particular, based on the WordPress CMS), building websites became even easier.
No special skills are required to customize a good WordPress theme – even when it comes to options free of cost…
Top 7 Free Elementor Themes in 2021
Apparently, high-quality freebies do exist. Not going to lie, some of them might leave a feeling as if they are “unfinished” or lacking a few extra options. But thinking that all free WordPress themes are “bad” is unfair – simply because you can’t test each single free WordPress theme on the market.
For this reason, you are reading this “7 Best Elementor Themes for Hotel Websites” post. I wouldn’t lie, the market is very limited on good Elementor hotel templates that come at no cost. Although my list is not too large, you should likely find the best free Elementor solution for your hotel business.
I am starting my list with Albatross – one of the best MotoPress Elementor templates free examples. One has everything to look for: clean and neat design, a hotel booking engine, and the layout universality. The multipurposeness of this theme allows you to create websites for all types and directions, starting from local hotels and finishing with guest houses or holiday inns.
Albatross is the only one among Elementor themes free to feature the functionality of the Hotel Booking plugin. Even with the LITE version of the booking engine (already built-in in the template) you will access many handy features. In particular, those are 1) booking & availability calendars; 2) seasonal pricing & custom rates options; 3) secure payment gateways (PayPal, direct card transfer, or cash on arrival); 4) automated or manually approved bookings; 5) bookable extras; 6) admin calendar… and more.
The good news is, you may easily upgrade to Hotel Booking PRO in case you feel like having a few more extras. The upgrade unlocks such advanced functionality as property search form with custom filters, synchronized booking with OTAs (Airbnb or Booking), etc.
