See if you can get a suite or adjoining rooms! Most rooms have a maximum of 4. You could probably sneak them up there but ya'll won't be very comfortable with 6 of you. You could also try renting a house or similar at VRBO.com or Homeaway.com.
Hope that helps!

Be careful some of the hotels are now charging for “extras” without telling you before booking. Examples are: newspapers, parking even if you don’t have a car, etc. ask them before reserving the room what all the charges will be including tax.

Which are these sneaky hotels? I travel quite a lot and have never seen such charges. From the big chains, I stay at Conrad, Hyatt and Hilton.

It was a friend of ours at a resort in Oahu Hawaii but I don’t remember the name of it. They had been charged for parking when they didn’t have a car and the resort would not remove the fee from the bill. Originally I was thinking it was a hotel in Vegas by mistake.

Many hotels will allow 6 in a room, most resorts will not. You could find a hotel that has a mini-suite or a pull out couch with 2 queen beds or something like that and sleep 6. Country Inn and Suites or similar would have plenty of options. If you are just staying one night on the way to somewhere, pack a couple air mattresses and a couple kids can sleep on the floor. If you are going to a resort, however, that might have a water park or food included, etc., you have to pay for each family member and that is when you find more restrictions on how many people you can have in a room.

6 people in one room is a fire hazard in a lot of places. Get a suite if two rooms isn't an option for whatever reason.

Personally, I would not tell them. Some hotels charge for additional occupants, even the miniature kind. You might just have to call down for additional towels.

You could also find a hotel with two bedroom suites like the Residence Inn (Marriott) or Embassy Suites (Hilton) brands.

That was my first thought. Also Homewood Suites has two BR units that easily sleep six.
