Why Should All Hotels Have Safes Available to Their Customers?

Staying in a hotel is like staying in a home away from home. It’s where you sleep, wash up, relax, get ready for the day, and sometimes eat. So, when you stay at a hotel, you want all of the amenities that your home offers: coziness, cleanliness, and safety. Out of the three, the main component of your stay that is difficult to change yourself is the safety of you, your family, and your belongings. Is the hotel in a safe location? Do your doors have a reliable lock? Is there a safe for all of your valuable belongings?


Most hotels provide their customers with the things they need to stay safe: peep holes in the doors, at least one lock for the door, and sometimes even a safe for the customer’s belongings. Depending on the occasion, customers may bring expensive items along with them on their travels. For example, if a family is traveling to watch another family member or friends get married, they may be carrying expensive gifts, jewelry, or clothing with them. Or, if a couple is on vacation, they may have a lot of money traveling with them. Hotel rooms that are equipped with safes help customers to feel safer and at ease knowing that their treasured belongings are safe as well.

Creative & Clever Ways to Hide Your Safe

how to hide a safeEveryone knows what a safe is for.  You don’t put just anything in a safe, you store your most valuable items. These valuable items might not only be of monetary value, rather items of great importance. This can include, titles, deeds, birth certificates, passports, and Social Security cards. Stuff you don’t want to land in the wrong hands.
Even though you own a safe which greatly increases the safety of these items doesn’t mean that your safe can’t be stolen or broken into. For this reason is why it’s smart to place your safe in a smart and concealed area.  Here are some helpful hints and ideas that will hopefully help you decide where to place yours.


  1. Inside a closet is a great spot to put a safe.  Typically a closet in the master bedroom or office. It’s most important that it’s not in an area of high foot traffic or visibility. You want to make sure the safe stays out of sight, which is why if you can hide it in a walk in closest behind some hanging clothes this will ensure it’s not easily found or transported.

  3. Under the stairs. Most homes have that awkward half room, half closet space under the stairs. This is another secluded spot which can easily be concealed and forgotten. Sometimes these rooms can be setup with flush doors that look like a wall panel and are discernable to the naked eye.

  5. Have an old fridge? Fridges can pretty easily be converted into a handy hiding spot. This can be used if you don’t have a super-secret room under the stairs and all you have a corner in your garage. Again, you don’t want the garage door being open and someone to drive by and spot your safe. This makes your house an easy target. Hiding your safe in the Fridge can disguise it in plain sight.

  7. Building the safe into a wall can be a great option if you have the means to make it happen. This is ideal because the safe can be concealed completely behind the wall. If someone does happen to find where it’s at removing it becomes far more difficult and will require more tools and time by the thieves.

  9. The easiest and least expensive route to hiding your safe is to use a cardboard moving box. This will help conceal it but doesn’t require too much protection outside of disguise.

Hopefully these tips will give you a better idea where to place your safe and what may or may not be a good idea.
