I am looking for deals on a hotel room halfway between CT and FL. I haven't gotten very far because the two websites I checked say there is a max of four guests per room!! Anybody here ever have that problem when traveling? Are some chains better than others when it comes to this?

I'm just lurking over here, but I thought I would chime in. I'm from a family of 7 (5 children) and my parents always snuck several of us into hotel rooms. As long as we didn't have to pass the front desk, no one knew.

I've found many hotels base it on how many beds are in the room. If you can find a suite (many chains have them now) they usually have at a capacity of 6-8.

I'm very interested to see if anyone has any advice for you. We are running into big problems with this already - with just three kids we are over the max of four per room, and it doesn't make sense for us to rent two rooms with them being so young. We could lie, but I really don't want to do that.

We have stayed in hotel rooms many times and we generally look for a hotel with a suite. It's a little costly, but cheaper than two hotel rooms. The nicest ones we've stayed in are the Embassy Suites. They have a bedroom with two double beds and then a sitting area with a pull-out couch. In the morning they have a full breakfast for free. Not just bagels and muffins, but an omelet bar, bacon, sausage, oatmeal, every kind of food you can imagine. That being included was well worth our $110 per night! We generally look for the nearest Embassy Suites when we have to stay in a hotel.

Hope that helps.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my awesome siggy!!!

Thanks Shari, I will look in to those. I don't think that is a bad price at all - hotels have gone up!
