The suspect was identified as Kanchanaporn Kruakham, 20, from Nakhon Sawan.
She told police that she had only Bt810 left as the rest was spent drinking with friends.
Earlier this week, Albert Ayoubdel filed a complaint with Pattaya police that a Thai woman stole 4,900 Australian dollars and US$700 from his room.
Kanchanaporn said she had exchanged the cash at an automatic machine on the Thep Prasit Road in southern Pattaya.
