You could probably get away with classifying almost all of those as
check_in, or maybe reception? For most of those venues, though,"reception"
would be immediately inside the front door, so there wouldn't really be a
need to show where it is.

An exception to that would be airports, where your ticket desk/s can be
located almost anywhere, & you'd then also have to specify that this is the
check-in for Airline A, that one is Airline B & so on

Such merging may cause problems for (some) editors.  If you can guarantee

Yes, we see this with some of the camping grounds we regularly go to. Some
have offices / kiosks, where you check in on arrival; some have no check in
requirements at all - you just arrive, pick a (unmarked) spot & set up;
while others have to be booked online before you go.

These could probably all be covered by check_in=yes / no / online_only,
possibly together with a bookings=(url)?
