MotoPress Hotel Booking at a Glance
A property management system, a booking engine, a channel manager, online payments, finance, and more. All in one plugin for your independent property booking WordPress website.
- Several years of progress, thousands of hours of development, and design.
- Supported by industry experts in the short-term rental business.
- Used and loved by property owners.
iCal Channel Management to Sync with OTAs
Grow your hotel or vacation rental business with more channels yet avoid overbooking! The plugin can synchronize the availability and bookings submitted through your website with those from online travel platforms like Airbnb, Booking, TripAdvisor, HomeAway, or any other that supports iCal.
The plugin generates unique calendars to export to external online channels and provides a way to import them from OTAs. Enjoy an automatic, near real-time synchronization (sync it as frequently as every half hour).
Streamlined Guest Experience
Property Presentation: Amenities, Image Gallery, Rates
Rent out unlimited categorized properties (holiday homes, hotel rooms) or just a single accommodation (a villa, a cabin, etc.) – the plugin works for both scenarios! Each accommodation type is fully customizable: add its description, sleep, amenities, bed size, comments, price, the booking system straight on the property page, and more.
You may also display extra services and packages available for a specific accommodation type.
Mobile-friendly Property Search Form
Simplify the search for your guests through all accommodations with a dedicated search form. The arrival/departure dates are compulsory fields, but the number of adults and children are optional so feel free to adjust and customize the default form (e.g. use the uniformed “Guests” field instead).
Guests will find a property that meets their needs and place a reservation using the booking widget regardless of the device they use.
Custom Fields for Advanced Property Search
Manage multiple properties and want to give guests better sorting options to find the most appropriate offers on the spot?
Just add any number of custom search fields (filters) to the search availability form (location, accommodation types, price range, etc.) in the booking widget and make the search a lot more convenient to the guest.
Real-time Availability Calendars
Enable guests to check the availability of individual properties right on the website. The Hotel Booking plugin retrieves availability data in real-time for the common search form as well as for the individual property availability calendars.
The status colors will show available and unavailable days.
Multiple Properties Bookable at One Go
One guest can reserve multiple accommodations during one booking placement. You may also turn on the WP hotel booking plugin to recommend the best set of accommodations according to the number of guests.
This quick and smart automation will help you serve your guests faster in their dynamic journey!
Flexible Rate & Inventory Management
Dynamic Seasonal Pricing
Regulate your property rates within any custom period: low and high seasons, holiday periods, etc. Set any prices in the preferable currency depending on a season or specific days/dates. “Season” is a general term and you can label it anyhow to reflect your pricing changes, for example, increase the pricing during any busy period.
The difference in price can be applied for both long and short periods (e.g. 2 days).
Compex Rates Based on Property Facilities
Properties of the same type are equipped differently? Maintain fenced rates for the same accommodation types with different options: nonrefundable and non-cancelable reservations, advanced amenities, breakfast, private bathroom, and more.
Your guests will choose the preferable one on the checkout page.
Per-person Property Rates
The accommodation rate can be changed automatically depending on the number of guests. You simply need to add the needed number of per-guest price variables that will be different from the base accommodation price.
The price rate will change dynamically based on the search parameters of your guests. You can choose to prioritize the maximum capacity number so that the number of adults and children will become flexible for each property.
Property Rates Based on the Length of Stay
Discounts for a longer stay? No problem! Create different price points based on the length of stay – add weekly, monthly or other rates for any custom duration.
The system will automatically discount the properties according to your rate rules. The longer the stay, the better per-night rate!
Discount Coupons in WordPress Hotel Booking Plugin
Easily create percentage, per-stay, or per-day personalized discount coupons via the admin dashboard. You’ll be able to set a discount amount, an expiration date, set check-in and check-out dates, min/max days to stay and more to customize your coupons for individual accommodations.
Sell the dreams cheaper and make each guest a loyal client!
Compulsory Taxes & Fees
Complete and correct tax, fee and pricing information of all accommodation charges. Add mandatory fees, accommodation taxes, service taxes and fee taxes – customize their types and charges to fit your needs.
Keep track on pricing information of all bookings in the admin dashboard and provide your guests with the pricing details.
Bookable Extras or Free Services
Offer additional guest services such as spa, airport-to-hotel delivery, a swimming pool, childcare, etc. that guests can add to their reservation on the checkout page.
Set the service price to be charged per stay, daily or let the guest choose. Per-accommodation and per-guest prices can also be configured.
Handling Bookings & Payment Gateways
Accept Payments Online or After Arrival
Confirm booking requests in the dashboard or instantly via email / upon payment. Charge a full price or deposit (fixed/percentage). Accept booking payments via built-in PayPal, 2Checkout, Braintree, Stripe, or Beanstream/Bambora gateways. Stripe additionally allows you to receive payments through Bancontact, iDEAL, Giropay, SEPA Direct Debit and SOFORT. Let guests pay after arrival or via a direct bank transfer.
Local Payment Gateways with WooCommerce
Need to integrate more region-specific payment gateways on your website? We have a dedicated WooCommerce Payment extension that allows you to do that in clicks. Extend the number of payment gateways needed to handle online reservation of accommodations, without tech experts.
Note: Hotel Booking WooCommerce Payments is a premium extension that is not included in the price of the Hotel Booking plugin.
Instant or Manual Booking Confirmation
Confirm booking requests in a preferable way – give control over booking approval to either your guest (by clicking on a confirmation link in the email), to yourself (you approve it manually via the admin panel) or a booking will be confirmed automatically upon payment.
For the payments, you can set the system to charge a full price or deposit (a fixed price or percentage).
Record Reservations Manually & Edit Original Bookings
Accepting booking by phone? Using other traditional methods? Let your staff add bookings manually via the backend dashboard to keep the processes paperless. The guest can pay later after arrival or using a direct bank transfer.
You can also edit original booking details, e.g. switch a room or change arrival/departure dates for guests.
Allow customers to create personal accounts to easier view current bookings and speed up the process with all future ones.
You are free to enable automatic account creation at checkout for everyone or let guests choose whether they want to have an account on your website.

Visualize Your Sales

I have Booking.com, TripAdvisor and AirBnB. I would like to sync the calendars there with this plugin automatically. Is that possible with this?
The Hotel Booking plugin support the import and export of bookings in ical format. You need to check your accounts of BookingCom, TripAdvisor, and Airbnb to make sure your accounts support the same type of synchronization.
Just minutes away from choosing this plugin for our upcoming villa rental site in Bali. One question pre-purchase: We have 3 rooms for individual rental. Can I add the whole place as a 4th option? Or would I need to make this a reservation on all 3 individual room?
Hi Jorn, You can add the 4th option as whole property but you will need to block all 3 properties manually when the whole property is booked and vice versa you will need to block the whole property (4th option) manually when any of 3 single properties are booked. There is no configuration yet to block them automatically.
Ok, thank you. But the plugin will keep control on available dates for choosing option #4? It will know what future dates #1-3 are booked, before allowing a booking on #4 to be entered?
Hi, If you block the dates of options 1-3 or 4 manually it will show the dates as unavailable ones. Feel free to register live demo to test it
Before purchasing, I would like to understand if this plugin has the features that are right for me. I have a portal where I created tabs of various hotels.
I would like to be able to give users the ability to book rooms through my portal. So the plugin should interface with hotel booking engines (for availability, prices etc…).
Also I should be able to offer two solutions: pay me or just make the reservation and then pay at the hotel. And it should also handle any no-shows, credit card guarantee, early cancellation, etc..
Is it possible?
Our plugin can be used to show room types as search results and not hotels. It is possible to enable online payment gateways and some offline like pay on arrival or direct bank transfer. You may also register live demo trial to test the plugin before purchase at https://hbdemo.getmotopress.com
Using the last two versions of the plugin, booking rules previously set and applied to a specific room/apartment e.g Sea view apartment, apt nr1, now apply to all apartments of the specified apartment type. It behaves like I chose All instead of only the desired.
Hi, Feel free to contact our support team to describe the steps to replicate the behavior you have described.
Hi, I have a problem with the image displays on the camera page and with the loading of all content (including the sidebar). If I try to update the plugin, the whole website crashes and nothing works anymore. How can I solve this? My website is: https://www.home52.it/ … sample camera page url: https://www.home52.it/accommodation/purple-room/
You need to update Campterra Theme Engine and Hotel Booking plugin after you update the theme. Feel free to contact our support team to get assistance with the purchased products.
