This is a feature request.
 
Many businesses are open by appointment only. Please add a option in the hours section that allows businesses that operate in this fashion to indicate so without requiring the user to leave Google.

I also need this "by appointment only" option. Our coworking space is annoyed at us. Please help.

I need this too. I'm encountering lots of small businesses that have opening hours, but only take appointments and no walk ins.

Hi Kent,
It is not a satisfactory workaround, it is all that owners of this type of business can do currently.
Google's idea is that people that find a business that operates by appointment only on Maps would be forced to call the business if the hours are not listed.. A business listing without business hours does not mean that the business is closed, only that the business does not have business hours listed.

If you wish to be heard by Google, please send feedback to them using the feedback mechanism provided through the GMB dashboard, nobody from Google reads this forum on a regular basis.

Is Google calling you to ask you ton include business hours specifically?
Would you mind sharing the phone number from where they are calling you?
