Hotel Booking Highlights
Mobile-friendly Property Search Form
Travelers can find accommodation for the needed dates and the number of people in a matter of clicks. Fine-tune the form in different ways: optionally add labels to the “Children” field, leave the “Adults” field only, add custom fields and filters (e.g. location) and more.
Availability Calendars in Real-Time
Guests can see the available and booked dates of individual properties in real time. This timecalendar plugin retrieves availability data for the common search form as well as for the individual accommodation calendars. You can also place these calendars on any page.
iCal Support to Sync Bookings Across OTAs Automatically
Automatic synchronization of bookings submitted through your WordPress property rental website with those from online travel agents like Airbnb or Booking.com. Avoid overbooking!
Unlimited Number of Accommodations
Add and display unlimited number of rentals. For hotels with lots of rooms of the same type, you can generate accommodations automatically. You can add and display a property rental description, an image gallery, unlimited in-room amenities, rates, extra services and more for all individual accommodations.
Set any prices depending on a season or specific days / dates. “Season” is a general term and you can label it anyhow to reflect your pricing changes.
Set different rates based on the accommodation benefits (e.g. breakfast included / no breakfast). Your guests will choose the most suitable one while placing a booking.
Rates Based on the Length of Stay
Make the property prices change dynamically depending on the number of guests specified in the property search form. Add price variables based on the number of travelers easily through the timecalendar plugin.

Taxes and Fees
Complete and correct pricing information on all accommodation charges: add mandatory fees, accommodation taxes, service taxes and fee taxes. The guests will be able to see the summary of charges before making a booking. All this info on each booking is stored in the admin dashboard as well.
Confirm bookings automatically or manually, with or without a payment.
- by guest via email
- by admin manually
- by payment
Pending bookings that were not confirmed are getting updated with the “Abandoned” status, therefore, the accommodation becomes available for reservation. The website administrator can view the Abandoned bookings and get in touch with the prospective tenants via email.
Record Reservations by Hand & Edit Bookings
If you use several methods for accepting bookings on your site, including traditional ones like phone calls or emails, you can still record all of them through the MotoPress calendar system, keeping your business paperless.
It’s also a breeze to switch a property, update arrival/departure dates, or change other information in already recorded bookings with our WordPress booking plugin.
Hotel Bookings Calendar
All received bookings and booking requests are stored in one place in a color-coded calendar view. You can sort all of them by statuses in a few clicks, view details of individual customer bookings of the past and future bookings, and manage all reservations in a centralized dashboard.
Attributes – Advanced Form Filters
In addition to the default arrival/departure and the number of guests form fields, you can also add your own ones that relate to your business or property type. For example, add location, accommodation types, bed size, price range and other possible filters that will help travelers to narrow down their search in clicks.
Flexible Booking Rules
Set min / max days to stay and available check-in and check-out dates for the entire hotel establishment, accommodations individually or seasons. You may also disable booking option for all accommodations or any one individually for a certain period of time.
Booking Buffer Rules
You can customize the minimum number of days allowed before booking and the maximum number of days available for future bookings by setting booking buffer times. This will help you get the needed amount of time to prepare the property for the next guest.
Weekly and Monthly Rates
You can set any property rate depending on a season (any term). To create different price points based on the length of stay, you can add weekly, monthly or other customizable rates. The system will automatically discount the accommodations according to your rate rules.
Packages and Services
Offer bookable extra services or packages (free or paid) along with the accommodation reservation. Charge per room or per person.
You’ll be able to set a discount amount, an expiration date, select accommodation types, set check-in and check-out dates, minimum and maximum days to stay and apply other settings to customize your coupons.

The scheduling calendar plugin gives you many tools to change the colors of your email, upload your logo, change tags, and apply even more branding tweaks.

Internal Booking Notes & Logs
To take your collaborative work further, the plugin allows you to leave informative internal booking notes for individual reservations so that other team members can be up to date on every customer.
Booking Multiple Accommodations
One guest can reserve multiple accommodations for many people during one booking process. You may optionally turn on the plugin to recommend the best set of accommodations based on a number of guests.
