It is almost impossible for ransomware to lock you inside the room. Because if one is inside the room, he can always open the door without the key.

But it is possible for the ransomware to lock you outside your room, if the hotel failed to generate a new key for you, and opening the door with a master key (card) is not counted.

No one would build an electronic hotel lock system that could lock you it is a fire hazard.

And clearly this hotel needs to train it staff not to use hotel computers for personal use.
