Cracking the Hotel Safe



For the most part, I really like the little safe stashed away in the hotel room closet. Now that the TSA insists on breaking every single lock I put on my suitcase, hiding my valuables in the luggage doesn't seem so secure. (Yes, I realize that it was not all that secure an option in the first place.) I don't bring expensive jewelry on vacation, but the safe is a good place for locking up passports and credit cards.

When my daughter was young, she also thought it was a great place to keep her shoes. We were all ready to head out for day of sightseeing, but I couldn't find my girl's sandals. She had locked them up up the hotel room safe. Luckily for me, I was able to crack her code. "1234"

TIP: Even if you plan on keeping nothing in your safe, go ahead and lock it before your kids decide to store something in it. Their code may not be as easy to crack.

  1. Good advice. I can only imagine what my children would hide in the safe.

    Interestingly, though, my dad designs safes and vaults. I've asked him before how to break into them. Just a hypothetical question, mind you. But he always answers, "You can't. That's the whole purpose."

    1. Do you think that the hotel management must have a default code? That's my backup if I can't crack the kids' code.

  2. That is really funny! I find it amazing that my kids have never done that, really.

  4. My daughter loved the last safe in our hotel room. Thankfully, I got to it first and she used my code.

  5. So funny!
    Those safes are definitely tricky. We needed hotel security to crack ours open after we got our laptop stuck inside. :/

    1. That safe must have been huge. Or your laptop is conveniently small for traveling.

  7. Yes, you can get the hotel people to come and open it for you should you forget the code or your kids go and meddle with the buttons and get it locked...accidentally.
