Thanks for everyone's advice! I'll do some more research when I get the chance.

I live in Vegas and occassionally stay in a room. You'd have to be dumb to leave your firearm in a hotel parking lot. Far more likely to get stolen from your car anyhow. Bring it in, dont advertise, PROFIT. Seriously though, if anyone knows you have it, that means it saved your life and for me I'll deal with the possible consequences ALIVE.

That's not an issue for any hotel that has electronic locksets with key cards. The key is reprogrammed for every new guest and the lockset in reprogrammed by the newly programmed key the first time the key is inserted. An old key will no longer work.

There are master pass cards for the hotel employees. The maids, maintenance and security all have them.

I almost always have a pistol with me in a hotel room. My wife was against it for a long time until we had a guy banging on the door in NM one time and noticed that the security bar was missing from that room. Might have been known to the big guy outside, might not, but I was glad I got my 6 year old stopped before he just opened up like he would at home.

I always double lock my hotel door and I really don't think a hotel/motel manager will be knocking at your door asking you if there is a firearm in the room. Because you don't have a CC Permit, the thing I would worry about is what happens to you if you have to defend yourself inside the room and you kill someone with the gun. Will you be prosecuted for having an illegal firearm? I think this is something you need to research if you are that concerned.

What can be a sticky legal issue in some states is the process of moving your pistol from the car to the hotel room without a concealed weapons permit. Where it may be fine in the car, and fine in the room, you could be charged for carrying from the car to the room. I know it sounds silly, but that issue has arisen in Florida concerning condos. Where it would not be an issue at home, where you are on your own property from the car to the house, it can be a problem in a public space.

Personally, I would be discrete and not worry about it. While in the room I would leave the gun locked in my baggage where there would be evidence of a burgulary if you gun went missing.
