On our first night our key cards quit working, so they offered us actual old fashioned metal keys. It wasn’t until our last day that I realized that they had actually given us multiple MASTER KEYS to every room in the hotel! Instead of either offering us a new room with a working key card reader, or fixing the key card reader.
I accidently got off the elevator on the wrong floor – and walked to the what I thought was my room and walked right in – but it wasn’t my room! Luckily it was empty at the time…but then I checked another vacant room, and another, and yes I had keys for everyone’s room.
I was horrified to know that the hotel gave me a key to every other guests’ rooms – no questions asked. My first thought was that if they gave me a key so easily, how many other master keys are out there? Who else had keys to my room? My second thought was – what if there had been a burglary, robbery, or assault at the hotel that weekend – the police would ask – Who had access to this room? and now I am a potential suspect.
Then I thought that I am pretty sure that most other guests would be upset to know that I had access to them, and their room while they were sleeping, or away.
