Myrtle Beach Seaside Resorts, an operator of oceanfront condo-hotel and vacation rental properties, has selected OpenKey to provide universal mobile key entry and check-in capabilities, starting at the Avista Resort.

The OpenKey app works in concert with the Assa Abloy Bluetooth locks at the property. With their own smartphone, guests will have secure access to their hotel room and be able to take advantage of amenities offered onsite. Additionally, the OpenKey app provides conveniences such as driving directions to the resort, virtual check-in, direct call to the front desk, or alerting hotel staff of early or late arrival.

“We opted to use OpenKey mobile technology based on the ease of use and convenience it provides our guests and our staff,” said Jim Eggen, corporate general manager of MBSR. “It was an easy choice because we wanted to select the solution we believe provides the industry standard for universal mobile key technology and OpenKey fits the bill. We are excited to provide our guests an incredible experience that begins before they reach the resort.”
