Sounds like a neat idea
But not well implemented because it lacks a Watch App.
It's like with Apple Pay. Still a drag if you have to get your iPhone out, which negates much of the advantage that makes it really convenient.
I'd certainly would go to a hotel where I could use the watch to open the room door over one where that's not supported!
Sure was to get locked out
Using this app disabled the physical key cards we were given. Didn’t realize that and left our phones in the room when we went to the pool. We couldn’t get back into the room using the key cards. After we get that straightened out we decide to only use the app and not the key cards. All was well until housekeeping used a key card to get into the room to clean it. When we returned the app now didn’t work. But apparently since we tried the app, that disabled our key cards. Maintenance had to come with a laptop and reprogram the door and let us in. We then used only the physical key cards and never had a problem again. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Slept in car
Locked out of my room and the front desk closed at 11pm not to return until morning.
Downloaded the OpenKey app to get back in the room and received the following message when prompted to input my phone number: “Alert! Sorry! Looks like you haven’t been checked into the hotel yet.”
I checked into the hotel at 2:40pm and have been in and out of the room multiple times. My belongings are in the room.
I don’t know why the app doesn’t think I’m not checked into the hotel. It seems that something with the OpenKey system concerning my stay has been lost in translation.
I called OpenKey support at 11:48pm PST and was informed that a “technician/agent” who may/or may not be equipped to resolve my issue won’t be in until 9am, the following business day. At which point I will have spent the night in my car, where I wrote this review, prior to my slumber.
As it stands, the lack of functionality and/or systematic communication concerning this app has rendered my money for this hotel stay a complete loss.

Hello Infinite One!
Thank you for sharing your experience! We are sorry to hear you had that experience. OpenKey is the provider of the service of mobile key, but we aren't able to issue keys. That is something that must be handled by the hotel in order to ensure they are issuing keys to the appropriate device.
Your review did help us to update our knowledge base to ensure that future guests understand this process as well, so we really appreciate your review! Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you would like to discuss this further.
