Is Wix good for vacation rentals?

Wix is a great platform for vacation rentals, hotels, inns and lodges – it can be integrated with third-party booking systems (AirBnB, VRBO, WebRez, etc) or Wix also has it's own built-in Hotels and Booking apps that allow your website to take bookings directly and skip the middle-man and their fees. You can also do both, have direct booking on your site, but also be on AirBnB, VRBO or other vacation rental platforms so that you get the best of both worlds, people will find you on those third-party platforms but they can also find you directly on Google and book with you directly.

Is Wix good for Hotels?

My Wix Hotels Review: Wix is a great platform for hotels, lodges and inns. Wix can have beautiful imagery and galleries to show off your perfect vacation location and also help book your rooms. I find that the Wix Hotels app also works great for many hotels. If you can work within it's framework, it is an easy to use system. While sometimes compromises are needed to make it work for every unique need, but it is a nice simple platform that is easily built on Wix. Of course, if the Wix Hotels or Bookings apps aren't fullfilling the required needs for your hotel, you can still have a beautiful Wix website that can be integrated with third-party booking systems, either by embedding the booking widgets onto your website, or linking out to them. Wix can continue to be the platform for your website to beautifully show off all your amenities, location, faqs, things to do, event rooms, etc – and we can integrate any specialized booking engine for the booking calendar and payments. Here is an example of a Wix website built for the RiverWalk Inn:

Is Wix good for Hotels? It works great on mobile!

Mobile optimization is crucial for vacation rentals and hotels, as people use their phones for researching vacations. Wix websites allow for full customization of the mobile view so the site works perfectly on mobile for easy browsing and booking. Of course, it's also important to look good on laptops and desktops, and Wix can do it all.
