False advertising gallery 5/5
I noticed that this app and landlords who use it are not really upfront about the price. I saw an apartment building advertising a 1 bedroom apartment for $900, then I speak with the landlord and they say it’s actually $925 + utilities why can’t you just say everything will be $988 altogether?! This app is bogus af.
Realtors and property managers are using the app to make money off application fees!
Don’t download. 1/5
By Noora E.
They require you to register, but refuse to delete your account when you ask them to. Just another company looking to hold onto and sell your info.
App will not apply filters, nor will it show details on properties
I like the app but the filtering does not work very well. When I filter “no pets” this app disregards the filter.
My kids have allergies. Why do I want to look at apartments with pets? It wastes my time
Who ruined the app? 1/5
This app was more user friendly before. Ow you can’t even narrow your searches or navigate the map to see available places. THUMBS DOWN.
Good concept 3/5
I can’t email any contacts and do not know what is the issue.
App doesn’t work! 1/5
The app no longer seems to work. It stalls, freezes, and then automatically closes out. Developers need to fix whatever issue or bug this app is experiencing because it’s actually a nice app to use for apartment hunting.
Very informative App 5/5
By Deb AP
I appreciate the daily updates on new properties; and their maps. This is the second time I’ve used the app; both times i found an affordable property for my father and my son.
Thank you for all the assistance i needed HotPads! Keep up the great work.

Very difficult to find options for owner/landlord. Could be simpler to maneuver
Good App, but How Do You Shut it Off??? 4/5
I found a great rental with HotPads, but now I keep getting emails on more & more & more Rentals that I’m no longer looking for!
There should be a “Thanks, I found a Place” Button!
By happy guide dog owner
I am a voice over user on the iPhone because I’m totally blind and this app looks great but it needs to be more accessible for a blind user. I am able to look at apartments with detail, but I am unable to create an account, registering or logging in or access any other features of the app. I would really appreciate it if this would be fix immediately. I am apartment hunting within the next four months.
Best rental app anywhere.
Nailed it! 5/5
We found our perfect home using HotPads!
Should be negative stars 1/5
Bunch of scammers. The so called landlords are just out to get your personal information. They post out dated pictures and you get to the property and you can smell a funky odor from a mile away coming from the house. The house reeks and the windows are open. They show you a home saying they want to rent ASAP, so you fill out their application and after you fill in your license and social security number all of a sudden they will let you know in 3-4 weeks. Thanks for nothing 👎🤬😡🤬🤯
Hot pads 5/5
Amazing! So many good properties & affordable too !
Can’t use it for the one thing I need 1/5
There’s no way to search for a keyword, IE in my situation I’m trying to find a studio with a private garage. It’s impossible to filter those results.
Missing one feature 3/5
This is a great, easy to use app. Developers: please add the ability to filter amenities, ie in-unit laundry or on-site parking, the same as the website.
Skip the middleman 1/5
Was super excited to use this App, it had everything I was looking for. However I have contacted over a dozen renters requesting applications or information through this App and not one has contacted me back. Can’t close the deal on a rental if my request never get acknowledged. Skip the middleman and go straight to the owners.
Need more filters so you can select non furnished, to not have to waste time on places that are for short term rentals that ruin neighborhoods and culture.
Finding a home! 5/5

Great app ! I would recommend it to my friends!
Helped me find an apartment 5/5
By Bani Uppal
I was moving, and stumbled upon this app. Helped me find an apartment with great ease. The notifications are accurate and helpful.
Always asks to enable notifications 3/5
Most apps ask if you want to enable notifications once and then stop. Hotpads asks every single time you open. It’s minor but annoying enough to warrant the rating.
Missing options 3/5
Would be great if the app had all the filter options as the website.
Easy to use. 5/5
Easy interface, well organized. Was able to rent apartment within 2 days of finding on site.
Very useful 4/5
I liked this app the best because you could put in a destination address to see how far away a property was from a desired point, like work. One downside is that often the availability dates where wrong, but I guess that’s more on the agent inputting the information.
App platform is impeccable, the users not so much. Has a ton of listings, but most are unusable. Information is frequently inaccurate or unavailable. You hear back from about 30% of your inquiries.
Only fair (2/9/19) 1/5
1). Can’t fathom where the good to great reviews come from?
2). Limited ability to appropriately narrow searches. Get unusable data.
Above makes this app a non-starter.🙄
It’s a pretty good app 3/5
By Idk what name to put but yeah
It’s a pretty good app, but the reason why I knocked off two stars is because the app frequently brings me all the way back to the top of the list. Like very very frequently. It’s so irritating because I would be scrolling through the properties, then all of a sudden the app brings me back to the beginning and I would have to scroll through all the properties again and again and again. It’s so annoying!! Other than that the app is good, but this one issue is a deal breaker for me.
Great and all but having one issue 4/5
The app is perfect I love how up to date it keeps me with new listings. The only problem that I’m having right now is that it won’t let me press send message when I want to contact the owner of the listing. It’s becoming frustrating because now I can’t get in contact with the owners and have to go different routes to find their information and contact them. Please help!
Deleting this app because it helped me find a home so quickly! I usually don’t write reviews, but I had to leave some feedback about its ease of use. The interface is easy to navigate, the filters actually work, and people actually write back/contact you for the most part (but if you live in a pretty popular area, CALL! It’s always faster). I used Westside rentals, apartments.com, trulia, and radpad simultaneously and I ended up finding a place on this app. Highly recommend!!
Love and hate 3/5
Beat app for viewing apartments, but impossible to change my mind and delete favs and bring back apartments I've trashed.
This app is amazing. I just found a place to live. It just “works” as you would expect it.
Hot Pads 5/5
This is probably the best app for rentals! It has everything you need and so user friendly! Set your search for your needs and it pulls up everything avail in the area you’re looking with descriptions, and maps, street view and contact info. And YES people actual DO respond! I’ve tried about a dozen or more diff apps and this one IS the Best One!
Commute times are a total waste of time, wildly inaccurate. Love that you can trash places you have no interest in
Too many scam listings posted 1/5
Maybe not the fault of the app, but either no reply or scams on every place I have inquired about.
House Hunter 4/5
By T Lane Murray
Very easy to use
It only uses Facebook or gmail to sign in
Hate it 1/5
Most if all don’t have studios but other Apartment apps do. Also finding a roommate here is nearly impossible. Don’t recommend at all. Look for other apps
BEST APP EVER ! 4/5
By Milly this
I normally do not write reviews but I must say HotPads is a GOD SENT app ! Not only does it help you find your dream apartment but it also has a great network between landlords and potential tenants. Before I discovered HotPads, i had a job relocation to Seattle and I was stuck between a rock and a hard place trying to look for an apartment. I also had went to housing court due to my former apartment complex failing to fix many maintenance issues & having a judgement on your record can be stressful but nonetheless, TRUST me when I tell you, THERE IS HOPE. THIS APP GIVES YOU HOPE. It’s very detailed, landlords let you know what they are looking for and as long as you find something you can work with, they’ll work with you. Long behold, I found a condo in Seattle that was SUPER CONVENIENT to everything including stores and public transportation. I wish I could’ve stayed longer but my job relocated my to California so I’m on the search for my next apartment on this app. I recommend this app to all my friends & they can’t stop thanking me for telling them. To the creators of hotpads, thank you very much for giving people like me a second chance to live comfortably and find a place I can call home. ❤️😊
The little things 4/5
Thank you for making a different icon symbol for people offering bedrooms. It sucked seeing a good place then finding out it was just a room for rent
Not happy 1/5

Huge help in finding what I wanted in the area I wanted during breaks in my work day. Huge help!
Doesn’t navigate easily. Better photos though.
