Zaplox Mobile Guest App

A custom-branded guest app that provides everything your hotel needs to deliver a turnkey mobile guest journey with digital check-in, mobile key, checkout and payment.


Download the app and check in with your phone with no need to stop at the front desk.

The hotel sends a pre-stay message via text or email that prompts the guest to download the hotel’s app via a link, which includes information about the reservation. When the room is available, the app sends a notification and the guest can use the phone to check in with no need to stop by the front desk. The guest validates the information and accepts the terms and conditions as part of the check-in process and is also able to request a late checkout or extra amenities as well as booking other services such as a spa treatment or a round of golf.

Mobile Key

Skip the lines – Unlock the door and gain access to hotel amenities with your phone.

Guests no longer have to handle physical keys or plastic key cards, but can use their own phone to unlock the hotel room door and access other hotel facilities such as the gym or conference rooms. Unlike plastic key cards that are easily misplaced or lost, the mobile key is safely stored inside the app. The mobile key works with BLE locks from the leading manufacturers.

  • The door is unlocked by holding the phone against the lock
  • The key is easily shared with other guests via SMS or email

By providing this information digitally, the hotel can ensure that accurate information is accessible 24/7 and available even if guests are not on the hotel grounds, resulting in fewer phone calls to the front desk.
