These videos show how easy it is to open hotel room safes with a simple paper clip. While not all room safes are this easy to open, it does show the fault of some. Your best option is to consider keeping valuable stuff elsewhere in the room, but you'll need a very well planned hiding place to thwart would-be thieves. One of the most interesting ways to help protect your valuables left in a hotel safe is by using a special hotel safe lock called the Milockie. This device consists of a special lock and strap, and allows you to secure the safe with your own lock, preventing anyone else from gaining access.
