Good for scouting locations, bad for scouting actual apartments 3/5
No matter what format are use for this website, what was most frustrating is that the majority of the site is taken up by a map of the area while only a fraction of the site is devoted to information regarding available apartments. Obtaining that information is rather cumbersome as there is a lot of clicking and scrolling down. And then if you want to actually print information regarding the availability of apartments you’re interested in, that’s an entirely new nightmare as you have to create new ways of capturing the screen so that you capture as much information as possible. It seems to be a cake a good site for scouting properties, but just not a useful site for actually finding one in closing a deal.
Great App, but could use a few features 4/5
I love this app and have been using it for years to find places! However, it could use a few features similar to other apps.
- When looking at a listing, it would be nice to swipe from the left to get back to the map.
- A notes feature could be good. If you go somewhere and want to leave a private note to yourself, you have to use another app.
- Sometimes the price slider disappears and you have to force quit the app to get it back.
Very effective and easy 5/5
Excellent app and easy to use. Really helped me find a place.
Horribly designed app 1/5
If you leave the app even for a second of checking a map or email, you lose the page you’re working on. Piece of crap.
PLEASE FIX THIS! 2/5
By The J Man 999
Whenever I am looking at pictures of a listing, if I accidentally swipe away the picture, I can’t get large pictures back AT ALL without restarting the app. A minor inconvenience, but one that could be fixed easily.
Parking NOT included in rent! 2/5
By Bushy Bastard
Users of this site should be aware that some of the information in the description and amenities sections, as well as the price, are frequently wrong. I won't list all the the inaccuracies I have personally been made aware of, but 2 recent ones were particularly irritating. Both listed the price as gross when they were actually net effective. Fine for a one year lease, but alters the math on a 2 year or longer. The most irritating thing was that both listed parking as included in the rent. This was stated explicitly in both listings. Yet, one broker said that was information that was no longer accurate and updated on the feeder site weeks ago. The other broker says that was never accurate and that parking wasn't ever available. She added that, if it ever became available, it would be a rental space from another deeded spot and the apartment that HotPads claimed included parking did not have a deeded spot. Where did HotPads get that info?
I love the map function of HotPads, but you must confirm all of the information about the apartment you're looking at with the broker before you waste your time looking at an apartment that will cost hundreds of additional dollars a month on parking.
Often don't hear anything from owner/broker 3/5
I've looked at 1 place that I found on HotPads. Most contacts go dead. I don't hear anything from anyone about the particular rental. It's kind of a bummer. I see a nice place, but I can't access it
Location! location! location! Frustrating!!! 1/5
By Me and me :)
UPDATE: Thank you to the developer for the helpful response.
This app does not have a place to where I can change my current location in order to do a search somewhere other than where I happen to be sitting at presently. Also the filter when I select different beds and other options it does not find any properties. I DO NOT like this iphone app. I’d rather just use it online
Not good !!!!!!!! 1/5
I could not find any 1 bedroom apartment on this all for me & my daughter & it don’t even say if they accept section 8 or vouchers
Photo Swipe Bug 2/5
On both iPhone and iPad there is a fatal error when swiping through photos. Super annoying.
Sort by Distance??? 1/5
It’s frustrating when you’re in the list view to not be able to sort by the distance of the city you’re searching by. I put in a city and the first 10 listings were cities 30-40 miles away!
Thank you 5/5
You guys make moving fun and extremely convenient!

Easy app! 5/5
By Niecey Kat
I love how easy this app is! And there’s so many homes to view!
Location, location, location 3/5
What could be more important when looking for some place to live, and yet no way to sort by school district. Just get notification after notification for places I would never consider. Very disappointing.
Website is better, sad 2/5
Photos are stuck in little window. Right hand panel won't expand. You tube.com app also had weird and stupid limitations that the website never has. Why even pay someone to build an app?
Doesn’t work well with iPad 1/5
App keep freezing some portions of the search area.
Pretty good 4/5
By La Fiera
Good app, I would like one that allows you filter out schools in particular though
Pretty Good 4/5
Great app, but the alert isn’t working for me.
This app will work awesomely and then after 10 mins it starts to lag and freeze. When I tap the pictures section, it doesn’t comply and I can only swipe to the left from the profile. I move to share the apartment link to my fiancé, and it works if I close and reopen the app. Very disappointing, as I need it to work flawlessly for my apartment hunt. More of an inconvenience.
Stupid loading process 1/5
Loads really poorly. Only shows some options not all so you are likely to miss something you may have been looking for. Not a hard app to do well, get better developers or project managers, dunno which, just fix it so I don’t have to re search an area 70 times to make sure I didn’t miss half the listings. Stupider than heck.
Great service 5/5
By The Whites nite time
Very easy to search exactly what you’re looking for!
Pretty good 4/5
It’s a good app. Clear on area and well discretion
Really Is a good app, BUT.. 2/5
...I'll see how much it Really helps in finding me a home. Properties are snatched up ridiculously fast, before you have any real time to properly research them. They're usually rented by the time you figure out exactly who to call.
If - and only IF - HotPads really does have Any, and I mean ANY, influence in aiding to put a roof over my head in the forseeable future, I'll make sure to personally change my rating to 5-stars.
Guess we'll have to see soon. 😊

It used to be my go-to, but it’s slacked off lately 3/5
Zillow is more up to date. I still browse though.
Great App 5/5
By Miss Blondie Lo
Is helping me to find my next place to rent. Easy to use.
Works great in Jacksonville Fl 5/5
Central, Westside, Northside and Downtown Jacksonville offers good variety of prices and locations.
I want an app just like this for commercial property. It would be nice to find businesses locals this easy.
Top-Notch Apartment Hunting App 5/5
By Bert Sierra
There are a few user interface functions I would like to see done differently, but overall the HotPads app and associated website are indispensable tools for house/apartment hunters.
From landlord's perspective 2/5
Too hard to use. Difficult to modify. Too slanted towards the renters POV.
Felt hijacked as I posted on Zillow and cannot seem to opt out of this ...hot pads
Tomato, Tomahto 5/5
A good app. For the person who criticized the app for ‘Property Manager’ dislikes; beggars can’t be choosers. The app is to locate “rentals”, not Property Managers🤔🤪. The app does its job.
Easy to use with multiple search features 5/5
This is our second move & using Hotpads again. I found it offers more places & the information I actually want about those places. Contacting the owner/managers is done within the program. You are able to factor needs for pets, pricing, size and timing to places from the pad. Great app.
Lord of dance 4/5
So far pretty good gonna list a few rental ads to see if these people qualify well but seems easy to search on
Not good for specific areas 1/5
I was searching for a house in a particular school district. This app did not allow a school district search so I had to enter a town search. It only gave me houses in the surrounding town, never in the actual town I had set up. Don’t bother with hot pads, stick to Redfin. Much better app.
Not useful 2/5
In theory, it should have worked but it didn’t. Very nice clean interface which is why I gave it two stars. I like the function where the apartments turn to different shades (i.e. greys out after viewing it one time). The other cool function I liked was being able to shoot a quick email to the landlord or management company, but, rarely do they actually reply. When they do, they don’t answer your questions and sometimes it’s automated or it’s add you to a listserve. Not cool. I was looking for an apartment Long Beach, CA and I was not successful at all. I wish HotPads required landlords to fill out a clear description of the place and provide all amenities and utilities included. And photos! (You can’t filter by amenities and utilities included either). I didn’t have time to call all listings and figure these details out. They don’t reply to emails and they post the information on the post either. They almost force you to show up to every viewing and no one has time for that especially when you know what you’re looking for. Oh well. Another one bites the dust. Trying Truvia and Apartments.com next.
Only Housing App I use 5/5
So efficient and reliable, I can't imagine using another app. Also, very user friendly
Very convenient 5/5
Most user friendly renting app to use. Especially with the commuting feature and easy to use filters for finding a place.
Many listings; works in select areas 2/5
I had good luck with this app in Michigan. Right now I'm in Tucson, Arizona. It's not a good app here. In Tucson, many people have turned over their rental homes to P.M.'s
(Aka-property managers). The property managers never (OK, 1 out of 30) get back to you. I found it's a waste of time here. But it's fantastic in other areas. Just depends on where you are doing your search. Definitely made me have very little respect for property managers here in Tucson. It pains me to think of all the people that have a house for rent and listed it with a property manager. As their house is just sit vacant. I've seen the same places on the websites over and over. Property managers are NOT 'movers and shakers' by any means- where I'm searching for a home. Going back to CraigsList.. as well as driving around looking for 'For Sale By Owner' signs.
Great app 5/5
I really like this app. There is one thing I wish could be changed and that is...not showing me rooms for rent unless I specifically choose to look for rooms. I’ve been looking for 1-2 bedroom apartments and when I click into some of them they end up being rooms which is a bit frustrating. Otherwise the app is great.
Finally a lightweight app that works smoothly and actually works when it comes to finding AFFORDABLE homes.
Used to be my favorite 1/5
I used to love hot pads. I finally deleted after weeks of the app not allowing me to enlarge the posted pictures for easier viewing. I could scroll through just fine with the thumbnail. It became too frustrating to close the app, remove it from my history, reopen, view one Home only to have the same thing happen
Loving this 5/5
By Travis Brooks
Great app. Lots of properties actually in here. Design and functionality of the site are exceptional, and the best I've seen of any of these rental sites. LOVING THIS APP !!
Can’t type in desired location 1/5
I live in Cambridge and everything is expensive so of course I would like to look elsewhere but this app just searches in your exact location there is an option to type by location but that feature does not work so all these reviews are fake as a suspected
LOVE this app! 5/5
It's easy to see what I liked and what I've seen vs not seen. The app lets you easily contact the owner/realtor. I think a lot of homes use it to rent out or it sources the info from somewhere. Idk but it works well.
Buggy at times 4/5
Overall a great app. At times, when viewing a pic on my iPad Pro, the pic won’t expand and requires to force quit the app and restart
Easy to use. 5/5
I love it.
