I am going with 4-5 people and we are just gonna do the 2 queen size beds and one will be on the floor or out at the table while the others are sleeping...I told them there will only be 2 people (because they charge like 15 per person per night over 2). Can I get away with this easily or will I run into a hassle? I don't see how they can really find out.
I managed hotels for years and this is rarely an issue. They really don't have any real idea if the other 2 are visiting or staying the night. That said, they may get suspicious if you ask for multiple keys at checkin. After checking in, you can come to the desk and ask for another key 'because you lost yours', but make sure that you or the 1 other guy registered approach the desk. Some places do keep tabs on multiple guests and some places charge extra for room keys. Two things can happen if they find out you have more guests staying with you than you said: 1.They will charge you at check out if it's on a credit card. 2.They will kick you out. Like I said, most hoteliers couldn't care less, but there are exceptions. Make sure you don't do something stupid like ask for a rollaway in a room with 2 beds after saying there's only 2 people staying the night.
