Ratings and Reviews
Forced to download for Airbnb rental. Although the app showed the location was accessible 24/7, it was accessible only when the business it was in was actually open. Couldn’t drop the keys off on the way to the airport, had to take with me and mail to owner. The technology for the app is minimal; if they can’t provide correct information, why bother!
This is a good service to have. User interface needs a lot of work.
The interface needs A LOT of work. Quite confusing how to actually set up your key and find a location but once you get past all that, the service works. They give you your first two key drop offs free and the call center is 24/7. Make sure the location you drop off your key is going to be open at the time you plan on picking them up. A 24 hour location (like 7-11) is your safest bet if you think delays are possible. Overall satisfied with the service.
You must try it!
This is the coolest app I've ever seen. I don't write many reviews, but I can't believe how well this app and the associated services work. When this started in Canada, I used it a few times and have been hooked ever since. I hope they continue to spread--I use it whenever I travel and have properties I will connect though KeyCafe in the future.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
