Still waiting for better filters 4/5
I would love to be able to filter by the year the home was built or the number of floors. I want to search for a ranch style home built before 1950. No way to do that. Or if the land already has utilities. So few filters, I have to go thru hundreds of listings to read the specifics.
No calls returned 1/5
I sent several emails to different apartments and called two and not one email or return call. Is this a scam?
GREAT APP HELPED US GET OUR NEW HOME.!
App Needs updating 4/5
This is a good app for the most part, however the one thing I don’t like about it is it doesn’t update very often with new listings. If this was fixed the app would get a 5 star
App great 5/5
Love the new update
I really like this app... but 2/5
I really like this app but wished they had better filters for people who are trying to pass a room in their house as a “studio” or an “apartment” if I’m looking for a bedroom in a persons home then I wish I could put that in the options not just get someone trying to rent out their bedroom at an exorbitant price and call it an apartment :/ please fix so landlords can’t correctly put their rooms/apartments/ sublets for rent instead of having to read for this info and the place being “shared”
I guess it’s not HotPads fault but these brokers either never respond to me or respond after a week when apartments are no longer available.
Awesome app! 5/5
Notifies me whenever there’s a dope cool new spot available nearby!!! Love it! Ohh and did I mention that these are actually affordable too!?!?
No reply 1/5

No reply’s when you send a email. And if you have any programs you can forget about finding a apartment on this site.

Can’t return to your listing 1/5
By Game anator
This app is very hard to maneuver and you cannot get back to your listing to delete it or edit it
By What the what?!
Good app, very helpful.
What’s the point 1/5
No one ever gets in contact with you. What’s the point of this app again????
Needs work but hits a broad audience 3/5
Not user friendly if you are offering a room for rent rather than looking for a place to live.
Good Job 5/5

Easy to search room and apartment.
User Friendly App 5/5
Excellent design and usability of App. The best I’ve used! Thankful for ease of use in stressful times!
Very user friendly! 5/5
Through my apartment searching process, I’ve been unable to find apps that are as efficient and user friendly as this one. Love that once you’ve tapped on a listing on the map that the “house” icon will change color so you don’t waste time accidentally tapping on listings you’ve already seen! Also love that the listings you favorite within in the app change color, too. Hoping to find an awesome place using PadMaps!
Nobody gets back to you 2/5
I’ve been using this for awhile, and STILL have yet to hear back from a property owner or broker. One listing had been taken, I only found that out because I called the broker myself.
Also, when using the saved searches feature, it is quite inaccurate. When I put in a saved search for Fairfield, it began giving me alerts, “we found a listing in Fairfield”, yet it lists the towns quite out of range, like Irvington, East Orange, Orange...not what I specified.
The only reason I didn’t give it one star is because I am able to reach out to the broker/owners myself. Ugh.
Love this site, always updated. Just need Correct exact info and is a must please 3/5

Absolutely money app 5/5
I move a lot for business and hate the process. The app is very easy to use and allows you to take a look at the market without that feeling of having to dive into the process each time. Love the visual map and filters as well...Well done guys!
There is no check on the outrageous prices for substandard housing.
I’m am overwhelmingly disgusted.

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!

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.
