  • Very good solution for guest house owners 5/ 5stars

    We bought AlpenHouse theme with built-in Hotel booking plugin. We use it for our villa and it is great. The setup was easy, good documentation, and the support was quick and helpful. The whole process of building website for our villa took a couple of days and we were ready to accept even payments! So now we’re enjoying selling reservations without commissions from booking platforms and we also are flexible here – we can sell special packages, discount coupons and additional services.

  • ...a very flexible booking plugin! 5/ 5stars

    ….and a perfect customer service too, bravo!

  • Well Built Plugin with Great Support 5/ 5stars

    We had a variety of different rates, seasonal and weekend, weekday with discounting on longer periods. Tried several different solutions but many left a lot to be desired. Happily Motopress plugin happily took care of all needs in a well built interface. Looks like the Motopress team have really listened to users. They’re support is also great. Very happy to recommend this plugin to anyone with an accommodation booking site.

  • Very Helpful 4/ 5stars

    Very fast response to my questions and very helpful. Stacy was friendly and explained things to me. Have had a very good experience so far using this plugin, only wish there is a payment gateway for BACS option.

  • Great hotel booking plugin! 5/ 5stars

    The plugin has so many options for booking management and support is also very helpful 🙂

  • Great Service! 5/ 5stars

    The customer service is superb! They are super attentive to help you in any way possible. Above & beyond!!! Thank you motopress our business has been simplified by this app!

  • Every plugin failed us till we found MotoPress Hotel Booking 5/ 5stars

    Having tried a half dozen plugins — everything from Booking Calendar to Easy WP Hotelier — I’d just about given up hope on finding a well fitting solution for our new Hostel. Just before hitting purchase on a less than perfect solution, I ran one more search and found MotoPress Hotel Booking Plugin.
    This plugin was exactly what we needed: easy to use, aesthetically lovely, excellent customer service, great price, and suits our needs exactly. Well done MotoPress team!

  • Good Plugin! 5/ 5stars

    I purchased this plugin and installed it for a single villa accommodation. Plugin works like a charm with a very good support 🙂 Thank you!


  • Function packed booking plugin (Hotel Booking) 5/ 5stars

    Great plugin, everything we needed from it. Support is great (whether forums or email) for a few questions we needed answers to. And for a small bespoke extra we used their contact on Fiverr who completed it flawlessly on time and within budget.

    Great plugin all around!

  • Disappointed 3/ 5stars

    The plugin looked great. Building a multi-property, vacation rental site for a client. They don’t want to take direct bookings through the site. Their key requirement was to be able to add bookings and manage them manually in the back end – admin area. The information on Motopress site before buying indicated this was possible – but it’s not.
    So after installing and a couple of day’s work – I’ve wasted time and money and I’m now investigating alternative options.
    It’s a shame as it looked so good.

    1. It seems that when I block date on airbnb/booking then sync in motopress it import and blocks that date. But if I then open in OTAs and sync again in motopress stays blocked. If I then put cancel for that booking in motopress and blok again that same date in OTAs it wont block again (Skipped. Event with such UID already exists in booking) even if I put it in trash. it blocks again only if I delete it from trash.
      I hope I tested OK and I am not sure am I doing something wrong but this could be a problem if there is canceled booking and then booking again for the same date. Can you check this please?
      Also, it would be great that you could block dates directly in booking calendar section rather than in booking rules section. I know it is complicated but it is only a suggestion.

      1. Hi Ante,
        Thank you for describing your situation. We have submitted a request for you to check synchronization. Please check you email and reply us back. Thank you also for your feedback and suggestions.

    2. Hi,
      My client is migrating from an old custom booking system to WordPress. Is there a way to move the reservations from one system to the other since I can’t create a new reservation in the WordPress control panel?

      1. Hi Liudas,
        If your old system supports export option in iCal format you can export bookings and import it to our plugin. Also it is possible to block accommodations for certain dates if your old system does not support iCal import/export.

    3. Hi there,
      I have some questions..
      Our client supposed to crate Word press website based on avaibook service, using this theme:
      He needs to sync it with airbnb and booking.com

      When we looked closely at the theme and avaibook, we figure out, that theme doesn’t manage booking flow and avaibook doesn’t work well for his needs. So we need to find other solution.

      We have found your plugin, and it looks like exactly what we want. But we still have doubts.
      Looks like we need to change the theme to be able to manage booking ( for example this one can work: https://listify-demos.astoundify.com/rentals/ ) or we can still use your plugin on the CasaMia (the theme we have) and with your plugin, there is a possibility to manage booking? If we will use CasaMia, is it possible to create other user/admin, who will manage his properties (This option is provided by Listify but not in CasaMia)..

      If we will use CasaMia, how we will implement calendars, and will it looks nice, like a theme?

      Do you provide your theme in the pack with the plugin? Can we check these themes?
      Thank you

      1. Hi Nat,
        Hotel Booking plugin is compatible with all WordPress themes as it inherits theme design. You can try using Hotel Booking plugin with current theme you have in order to check how it will look like. As for the user so you will be able to create a new user role and set up its permissions using third party plugin (our support team will assist you with this).
        Hotel Booking plugin is used at 2 themes at them moment: Oceanica and Villagio. You can test both templates at our Live Demo.

        1. Hi, thank you for the reply. There is one more question, that i have =)
          Is it possible to manage prices for channels differently? I mean, if the price shown on the website is 40€, on the booking.com it will be 45€ (because of there fee from the booking.com). So, the property will have a different price because of that. Is it possible to manage? or maybe saving all prices equal, booking.com can add their fee to the price of the appartment… Did you meet this kind of issue?

          thank you

          1. Hi Nat,
            We sync with external booking platform through the ical system. This system only synchronizes the availability of properties. It does not transfer any rates or payment data. So there won’t be a problem if the prices on booking com differ from the ones on your website.

    4. Hi
      Few queries before consider buying it
      1. Can it be used for multiple hotels under the same website?
      2. How many number of rooms can be added and iCal synchronized?
      3. Is SMS possible similar to email notification?
      4. Is it possible to change the word Category , Tag, etc.
      5. What is the difference between Accommodation Types and Accommodations from a hotel website perspective.
      Thanks and Regards

      1. 1. It is possible just to use Categories as different Hotels to filter the accommodation types. But category is not available as search parameter yet so all accommodation types will be shown in search results page.
        2. There is no limit for accommodations to be synchronized.
        3. You can send notifications by email only.
        4. Plugin translations are editable.
        5. Accommodation type is a type of room like ‘Double Room’ and accommodations are real number of room of this type. Accommodations defines availability of accommodation type.

        1. Thank you for responding;
          3. Can we use any third party plugin for SMS notification? or do you undertake any custom development/features
          4. We fear you have misunderstood our query. Please refer answer of question No. 1. Our query was can we change the word Category to Hotel?

          and another question is;
          6. Is report generation available? On your website, we didn’t find any.

          1. – Unfortunately we did not have a chance to test it with plugin that allows to send SMS instead of email. However the plugin is ready for development and for integration with other services so feel free to extend its functionality. Thank you.
            – If you simply need to change ‘Category’ into ‘Hotel’ then it is possible by editing plugin translation. We’ll assist you with it if you need our help.
            – There is not option for reports yet. However we collect feedback on this so you can share your thoughts with us – what information you need in report. Maybe you have some example.

            1. Hi
              Apologies for the delay as we were working with some other plugin and now almost decided to go with Motopress. Please answer the following;

              1. Reporting means provision to export booking details (booking orders) in excel format or so (Guest details, from and to dates, other booking details, etc.)

              2. From a single room page, is it possible to book/reserve/check availability by using the search form (check availability form on right side)? While we were checking the demo frontend, it displays the whole search results.

              3. We found that on email, Price Breakdown option is unavailable and hope it can be incorporated by some means.

              4. Is it possible to print the bill/receipt of booking from the dashboard so that the hotel management need not to depend on another billing software?

              5. We wish to have a custom WordPress dashboard for our client and came across few plugins to change the look and feel of admin dashboard, what’s your opinion about this?

              Thanks and Regards


            2. Hi,
              1. At the moment there is no option to import Bookings within Hotel Booking plugin. We’ve added your request to our features list.
              2. You can enable ‘Skip Search Results’ option in plugin settings to check availability of current room without living its page.
              3. We have this feature in our to-do list so I guess it will be available in one of the next updates.
              4. Currently you can print the booking while editing it on the back-end only. We have added your request to our list of features. Thank you.
              5. It is up to you to modify dashboard styles for website owner. We followed WordPress standards while developing Hotel Booking plugin so I guess its back-end sections will work properly with third party plugin that modifies the look of WordPress dashboard.

            3. 6. Please tell us if we purchase Single Site license, is it required to pay $49 every year for updates or it is a onetime payment?

              7. Where we can find the difference between Single Site and Unlimited Site differences?

            4. 6. The license of Hotel Booking plugin is annual for plugin updates and technical support. Its renewal is 50% of the license plan.
              7. The only difference between Single and Unlimited licenses is the amount of sites where this license can be used. If you select Unlimited license you can use plugin on unlimited amount of sites and Single – 1 website only.

          2. Hi,

            We are glad to inform you that now it is possible to export all the booking info in the CSV format for reporting. Make sure to update the MotoPress Hotel Booking plugin to its latest version (3.5.0) to use this and other new features.

          3. We are happy to announce about release of new Hotel Booking 3.6.1 version where we have added new tags for email templates: Price Breakdown, Country, State, City, Postcode, Address, Full Guest Name. We notify you as you requested this feature.
            Thank you for collaboration. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further question

    5. hi, is it possible to see a summary of guests arriving today, tommorow etc? and to search for availability on any given date or dates in the future?

      many thanks

      1. Hi,
        It is possible to filter bookings per month and count guests on your own. However there is no tool yet to count all visitors for certain date.
        As for search availability so you can check it at single page of accommodation type using it form.

    6. This plugin appreas to be well designed and programmed.

      Can you tell me whether it is possible to check in a guest on the same day that the previous guest checks out? Example guest 1 arrives may 12 departs may 13, guest 2 checks in may 13th. this is critical.

      Thanks for for your assitance.

      1. Hi Lizzy,
        Thank you for your question. If guest #2 checks availability of accommodation that is booked till May 13 he will see this room in search results page. So he can book this room from May 13.

    7. Hi there, I am considering getting this plugin for a client. It´ s a tourist center with camping site, cabins/lodges, and a hotel. Besides the booking calendar view I don´ t see much in the way of administrative functionality, like lists of rooms checking in, checking out, rooms with staying guests, etc. And what about maintenance administration? A system to register missing/broken items pr room, etc. Please tell me these things are in place already….

      1. Hi,
        Thank you for your question. The booking can be made by searching for available accommodation by filling parameters like amount of guests, check-in and check-out dates. Could you specify what you mean under Booking Calendar view and how it works for multiple accommodation types you named?
        As for administration so there is single booking calendar that shows all available bookings/reservations in a calendar view. Could you specify the tool you need to register missing/broken items pr room, etc. Can you provide some example of solution for this?
        I’d recommend to view live demo and register the type that meets your requirements.

    8. Hello!

      Hi, before buying, I want to know if I can achieve this configuration

      Room X:
      Minimum: 1
      Maximum 4

      1 Guest = 80
      2 Guests = 100
      3-4 Guests = 45 each guest

      Monday to Thursday: 30% discount

      I appreciate your feedback

      1. Hi Ed,
        The first option you described is not available at the moment. However we have it in our to-do list and we’ll notify you here once it is available. Thank you for your suggestion.
        The second option with 30% discount is possible by creating special Season with dates from Monday to Thursday. Then go to edit the rate and add new season price applying your special season with different price (-30%). Don’t forget to drag it above your main season price and save the changes. Thus special season price 2ith 30% discount will be applied on days from Monday to Thursday and your basic rate will be applied on other days.

      2. Hi Ed,
        We are happy to announce about 2.6.1 version release where it is possible to indicate price per guests amount. Thank you for your feedback.

    9. can this be used for like a vrbo type site? I nsee you add accomadation types so not sure. can you add actual listings that are all different?

      1. Hi Todd,
        Thank you for the question.
        You can create an unlimited number of accommodation types and sync them with VRBO and other booking platforms that use iCal. Note that this plugin may not fit your needs if you want to let multiple rental owners manage their own accommodations, bookings and payments, because the payment and booking systems of the plugin are shared.

    10. Sorry for maybe asking stupid question, but where does the money the guest pay go ? If they choose to pay , for example, by credit card ?
      I didn’t find any information where is my bank account settings available ?

      Thank you for the answer, and sorry for lack of knowledge .

      1. Hi Matija,
        Thank you for the question. WordPress plugins do not process payments, we only offer payment gateways that can process payments online safely. Our plugin has the following in-built payment gateways: PayPal, 2Checkout, Braintree, Stripe, Beanstream/Bambora. You enable them in the plugin settings (Accommodation > Settings > Payment Gateways) and fill in your seller account details there. These payment gateways appear on the checkout page and when a customer chooses one of them, they are redirected to a safe payment page of the chosen gateway. Upon payment the customer returns to your website and the money go to your seller account on PayPal, 2Checkout, Braintree, Stripe or Beanstream/Bambora.
        Some of these payment gateways allow buyers pay with a credit card without registering an account on the platform. You can connect more payment gateways with this addon.
