Barefoot Beach Hotel installs OpenKey technology

Barefoot Beach Hotel

Barefoot Beach Hotel in Madeira Beach, Fla., near Tampa Bay, has selected OpenKey to provide mobile key access for guests directly from their smartphones. In addition to keyless entry, OpenKey will enable Barefoot Beach Hotel guests the ability to check-in before they arrive, so they can go straight to their unit and start their vacation without visiting the office and standing in a long registration line. They can also notify the hotel of an early or late arrival, book hotel amenities and call the front desk through the OpenKey app.

“Barefoot Beach Hotel is excited to bring OpenKey to Madeira Beach and provide our guests the convenience of a mobile key to their room,” said Aaron Huffman, GM of the Barefoot Beach Hotel. “This is one of the many ways we help our guests relax and enjoy a memorable stay with us. We chose OpenKey based on the easy interface and simple access from any smartphone with bluetooth. We know our guests are going to love the convenience and experience of remote check-in and keyless access.”

Guests in search of a more personalized hotel experience are drawn to the Barefoot Beach Hotel and request rooms overlooking the Gulf Of Mexico. With plenty of activities within two blocks of the hotel at Johns Pass Village, there is something for everyone to enjoy while at the property. The property has studios with kitchenettes and two-bedroom suites that provide a cozy stay.
