If you’re ever on the cheap end when it comes to finding lodging for your vacation, you should reconsider your approach. Not every good deal leaves you as secure as you’d like and one motel in New Mexico proved the point.
After having a random guest open their room with a key card assigned to him, two friends went to the front desk of the Rodeway Inn that they were staying at and asked how something like that could happen.
“We asked the hotel lady why this might have happened and she said, well, they gave the other people the master key,” one of the men said in their video.
That prompted the men to find out if it was a fluke or if they, too, had access to other rooms. As I’m sure you’ve guessed, it wasn’t a fluke.
Sure enough, their room key opened up two more rooms adjacent to their own.
Choice Hotels, the parent company, saw the video and wrote in the comments, “Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We have contacted the hotel and determined that there was a malfunction in their key system.
‘They have taken immediate action to address this.”
