Now retired from a career that included many years as a "road warrior", I had one very unusual incident where it was me as the "invader".
It was back in the days when you were given a metal key (remember those?!) for the room. I walked into my room, garment bag in hand, set it down and flopped onto the bed to relax. After tuning in a TV show I decided to unpack. As I went to hang things up I saw that there was already clothing hanging there...and at the same time I heard someone in the shower. Well, I packed up and walked down to the front desk to get a different room, with the tenant none the wiser.
It was funny then, but downright dangerous as I think back on it now. Had that inner lock been in place, I'd have made the discovery BEFORE I could enter the room.
Good advice to simply use every locking device available, plus your own door stop alarm: http://www.personalarms.com/home_ala...stop_alarm.htm

last night I watched the movie Vacancy. after the movie my wife says " I'm so glad you carry a gun". this movie will make you think twice about staying in a Podunk motel. The topic is know your target and i completely agree but once the target is identified be glad you have the means to end a threat.
