You still have not told me what business the night manager (not maids, not repairmen, etc) would have coming into my room at 1 in the morning! Pretty sure any motel business would be handled during the day, right?! And isn't it standard practice to knock first?! Are you going to answer the question I am asking?!

I'm sorry but using seedy and clean in the same sentence when describing a motel is just wrong on so many levels.

Your mistake was staying there after they entered your room at 1am. I would've packed and left that night. There's nothing, and I mean nothing in your room that needs to be tended to at 1 am. And, if there was, I'm sure you'd know about it.

THANK YOU. That's the point PacificFlights keeps missing (perhaps on purpose). There is no busness I can think of that is tended to at 1 in the morning, by a night manager who comes into your room, without even knocking first!

I did answer the question, you dont want answers, you want agreement.
Hotels do lots iof things at night from room check to making sure the a/c is tuned low to save energy. Night mnanagers do inventories of occupancy, check to make sure someone who checked out is out of the room (people do check out but stay longer). They may be seeing if a room they put a extra cot in had that cot removed. For all you know the night manager may have been going to room 101 but eneterd 107 by mistake thinking it was empty. I say this again, there is nothing illegal about hotel employees entering a room for legitimate business purposes even if it turns out the room was occupied. It's called a Mistake! If you have something to say it was not a mistake, tell us, but from what you said, it sounds like a mistake. It happen to me a few times over the years. It happens in flea bag motels and up scale resorts. That is the answer and i;m sorry if its not the answer you wanted.

Thanks, PacificFlights, you answered my question. Up and until your 7:42 post you had not.

No, I honestly don't want agreement, I simply want answers and to gauge others' reactons to my experience. I know my bf and I (25 and 37 yrs of age) had never experienced anything like that before, staying at hotels, and were shocked that those things actually occur. You say they occur often, so I guess I had just been lucky up to that point.

It is my hotel's policy to get the names of all parties staying in the room...so if you paid for the room but your boyfriend was still registered, there would not be any issue about him getting a key.

Plenty of stores sell security locks. Buy one and use it. No 1:00am "accidental" entries to our room when we travel.

Travel Safety Products. Walkabout Travel Gear LLC.

Is one example.

If you registered as one person, your friend was not entitled to occupy the room, and repeated and habitual occupancy would entitle the motel to charge the two-person rate. If you registered as two people, both are entitled to key access the room. Although they seldom ask, a motel is entitled to verify the identity of all occupants, and charge for all occupants according to their policy.

You seem very upset with that motel.

Did all those problems happen on the last day you were there?

If they happened early into your stay, why did you stay there for nearly a month ?
