“I would recommend working with Cloudbeds Websites to any independent hotelier.

According to a 2017 Iowa State University dissertation, “Hotel websites have become a critical marketing tool as they present the hotel directly to consumers. A hotel-branded website is reported to have the lowest cost a hotel pays to acquire a new customer among all the online booking channels. Direct booking saves intermediaries’ fees including commissions (5% - 10%) levied by travel agencies and $3 to $5 per transaction fees charged by a global distribution system (GDS).”
