About innkeeper

Next-gen software stack for running a hotel

Tejas (CEO/founder) lived in a motel his parents ran for 18 years.

Innkeeper builds software that helps small to medium-sized hotels operate more effectively. Our tools give hotel owners the capabilities that previously only large hotel chains had, but our software is simpler to use and costs less.

We make it easy for these hotels to be online. Create their own websites, manage bookings from major platforms in one place, and understand their competitors' pricing. We also offer features like automated guest communication and dynamic pricing, all aimed at making the day-to-day operations smoother and more profitable.

Our team believes in using technology not just for its own sake but to solve real problems that hotel owners face. By focusing on what hotel owners really need, we're building a suite of tools that are practical and directly contribute to the success of their businesses.
