    Repeating, but I also look for at least $200 a night so I'm not staying where the motel which takes the vouchers issued to those just released from jail. Think about your low level criminals. Where are they going to stay and party? The cheapest hotel so the can spend their money on what is important to them.

    I harden my room with duct tape over the peep hole and carry a wedge. Add a chair and you have gained time.

    When I leave the room I lock my pelican luggage and leave it in the closet. Hotels at the above price point have push button lock boxes in the room.

    I also leave the don't disturb sign out and "catch" it in the door so I can see if the door has been opened upon returning.

    Everyone should have a rubber door stop in their shaving kit. This is probably the best way to harden your hotel door. Keeping it in your shaving kit means you will never forget it.

    Speaking of I’ve not been overly impressed with the last couple doorstops I purchased. Anyone know of something better or do these cheap China Mart unimpressive ones work good enough for what you’re doing with them?

    there are many options, some would work as an impact device as well, or make your own

    I prefer something like this: https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=...53613695994447

    Solid rubber and ribbed on the floor side to ensure a good grab when you kick it into place. The above happens to be ribbed on both sides which isn't a deal breaker for me but it needs to be solid not hollow.

    Long gun(s) stay in the car. Occasionally a Tac14 comes into the hotel room, where large carnivores guard it. Pistols go with me, even to the hotel gym, where I wear one and keep the larger in a small backpack with the usual gear.
    If I'm running outside in a strange city, I'm packing, and it'll be a service pistol and spare mags in 9mm or .40. In that case the backup will be locked in a suitcase or in, hopefully, the room-provided safe.

    With truly upscale lodging, a complication is valet parking. That can be situationally difficult to avoid, and presents other risks if that's the only viable option. I prefer to avoid valet parking when possible.

    Long gun or shot gun stay in vehicle, one pistol on the xo other on person. I have traveled enough to know it’s not easy to move a long gun from car to hotel without issues. Tac 14 size may be pretty easy, but you don’t want to be sorting your stuff in the parking lot.

    This is what I have used in the past (they work good, light weight and easy to carry (run a zip tie through the hole and you can hang like six on a carabiner) and fast to use) (can also be used to hold doors open):

    This looks promising for hotel room door (during a building clearing I would not want to carry every many of them or have the time to deploy them) :

    great for transport long gun in and out of vehicle. To make it less suspicious next time you fly save baggage tag and put on garment bag.
