The Beach House Resort, a coastal retreat along the shoreline of Hilton Head Island, S.C., installed OpenKey’s mobile key access. Guests staying at the Beach House Resort are able to access their rooms via the OpenKey smartphone app that seamlessly integrates with the Kaba Bluetooth-enabled locks. The digital key eliminates issues of demagnetized key cards and provides a convenient on-screen reminder of the guest room number.
“We’re excited to add OpenKey technology to our hotel and provide our guests with an easier way to check-in and access their room,” said Jeff Elseser, general manager at Beach House Resort. “We strive to find new ways to provide our guests with the simplest and most relaxing experience when staying at the Beach House Resort and OpenKey is helping us do that. We feel our guests deserve the best, so OpenKey was the obvious choice.”

The universal technology allows guests easy access to their hotel room, gives them more time to enjoy their vacation by being able to manage their check-in, and allows them to call the front desk and send their arrival time to the hotel directly from the app.
Built in 2012, the Beach House Resort embraces the island culture, incorporating it in all 202 rooms. The resort is within walking distance of over 100 shops, restaurants and activities at Coligny Plaza as well as championship golf courses, bike paths, and the sandy beach.

The OpenKey app is available to download in the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.
