Serious Security Violation @ Hotel Check In?? in Consumer Services & Disputes Posted Monday at 03:16 PM · Report reply On 7/6/2019 at 6:55 PM, TkoPk3 said: I know I wasn't injured but surely there must be some regulations in place to prevent this right? No, and regulations don't prevent things from happening. Unless you were damaged as a result of what happened, your post raises no legal issue.

This is on your "friend". I could not disagree more. Unless the OP has an androgynous name (e.g., Pat or Terry) and the OP's friend claimed to be the OP, then it absolutely is the hotel's fault. While the hotel may have had no reason to believe that the OP didn't know this woman, the hotel also had no reason to believe the OP knew the woman. Simply walking up to the front desk and saying, "hi, I'm with Terry," should not result in Terry being checked in and the person being handed room keys. No decent hotel would allow that. I can't remember the last time I checked into a hotel without having to show a photo ID and credit card. But, that doesn't change the fact that, unless the OP suffered damages, there's no legal issue here. The hotel employee who allowed this to happen, however, ought to be in fear of losing his/her job.
