The use of iPads by hotels–or by guests bringing their own iPad–is part of the reason GuestComment added a non-kiosk version of our hotel review management platform. Now, hotels can install the GuestComment app on their own devices–or provide a unique web URL to hotel guests that BYOD–so that guests can leave feedback, reviews, praise and critiques from any device!

If your hotel has started offering iPads to its guests, please drop us a note and we’ll show you how you can use GuestComment to improve your hotel reviews.
