AMBeede - swimming in hotel pool if you're not a guest?

I was just wondering what your take on this is. My ILs are coming to town and they're specifically staying in a hotel with an indoor pool because their kids want one. If we went over and joined them in the pool for a bit, how big of an issue is that for the hotel? Would they even know who is a guest and who is not? (ILs are getting 3 rooms for 9 people).

  • I've swam at hotels when family was staying there and I wasn't and it has never been an issue.  As long as you are with them or have the room key to get into the pool you should be fine.

    In addition to his known five heart defects, he was also born with an unknown condition, Tracheal Atresia. There currently is no treatment for this. We will love and miss you forever our sweet angel!

  • I feel badly, because it never occurred to me that this would be an issue.  When my ILs come to town they get a hotel so all the grandkids can go swimming.  I guess we always figured since they were paying for the room, but not using the pool we would! 

    Now sneaking into a hotel when you know no one is a guest is definitely wrong, but I know people do that too, just not us!

  • If your family is staying, then it's not that big of a deal. It gets to be an annoyance when grandparents/aunt & uncle/whoever bring the whole extended family-worth of kids and leave one or 2 adults in there with them.

    Just make sure to stay close to someone that is staying at the hotel in case you need through a door or need a key re-programmed.

    Non-guests are not covered by the hotel in any way, shape, or form if something were to happen. I'm also pretty sure that insurance is the reason that non-guests can't come to swim on their own, without family/friends staying in the hotel. (We've had home-school parents ask if their kids can come for swimming lessons; not allowed at all.)
