I was 'recommended' to install this plugin by my theme, and so I did. I am still using its partial features (easy rooms, to be precise), but merely because I am not aware of any alternatives (at least at this stage). You can say that I am forced to use it.
The first impression of the plugin is impressive, to be honest. It has a plethora of features. But it is somewhat complicated to understand and work with. Not to mention a few bugs here and there. Given that there hasn't been any updates in the past 11 months and the WordPress compatibility being only up to 3.9.2, I am very skeptical of its future. Not a big fan of their UI either.
I strongly feel that the developers have the potential but not the willingness to improve on it.
I will definitely consider retaining it and perhaps buy its premium version if I find significant improvements showing in the future. Otherwise I'll be out as soon as I have something better at hand.
It's is really good from a functionality perspective but they have gone way overboard with css styling - to the point that it is just ugly and painful.
The documentation is pretty cryptic and difficult to understand and they provide no support whatsoever so you're stuck with cryptic help docs!
I give is a 5/5 for functionality but I had to rate it down for it's really ugly and un-user friendly interface and the over abundance of css styling...
The easyReservations plugin worked very nice, it's a good tool with lots of options for bookings and reservations.
But I had to uninstall it and find another one because my Yootheme Widgetkit plugin stopped working after installing easyReservations. After deactivating this plugin, my Widgetkit was functioning ok again. Really sorry about it, would have loved to have this plugin in my site...
A Good plugin but a it is a bit complicated to setup and run for new users
I tried to use the free version for booking a studio at daytime. The free version has more functionality than other free booking plugins I have tested and can handle unlimited number og resources and bookings, but it seems to be designed for over night booking. I found no way to book a day even if the functionality seems to be there. When I book a day, it books the night.
There is also a problem that a room can be booked several times for the same period. The room is shown free until the booking is approved. But the room can be booked again even if the booking is approved.
The free version has no support.
