Staying in hotel, what to do with gun..??

I am planning a trip to a neighboring state for a prairie dog shoot in a few weeks. Unfortunately, I will have to leave late and stay in a hotel on my way.

Obviously, I will have a rifle with me.

My question to the rest of the posters is what to do with my gun.

Do I take it in my room without telling the hotel???

I would rather not leave it in the car...

Thoughts????

Yes

Why would you tell them take all valuables inside with you....

Take it in the hotel room with you. It's none of the nobody's business and you probably won't be the only one with a gun in your room.

I took a shotgun (in a case) with me into a hotel. Most dont let you do that, but just dont tell them about it. If they find out, just play dumb.

If I am in a Hotel room, there is a gun in the room with me.

It is not illegal to take your gun into a hotel room. Once you stay in a hotel room, it has the same rights as any residence (house, apartment, trailer, etc.) You can tell them your are an out of town hunter, a lot of hotels will be use to this. If it is against their policy to allow it, they have NO legal recourse.

Don't believe me? Search warrants are required to search hotels even if the manager/owner says its OK, just like a landlord to an apartment.

If your only there one night, don't tell them, more than one, they might not allow you to stay the next night.

bring it in. Better than leaving it in your car.

I always have my firearm with me when I'm in a Hotel. I don't see why you would tell them anything.

I don't leave it in the room when I'm not in the room, I don't want housekeeping to come in the room and freek out about my firearm, mishandle it, or steal it.

Will try to take it in a side door.

That is what I was thinking all along
