Reader Joe checked into an airport Holiday Inn and found an unlisted amenity on sitting atop his room’s safe: bullets. I don’t normally embark on special forces missions, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night!
While the room’s previous guest might have been planning to check a firearm, it’s also reasonably likely to have been where a federal air marshal stayed the night before. There have been several incidents of air marshals leaving their service weapons inside airport restrooms, Godfather-style. Fortunately this ammunition was merely pre-security in a nearby hotel.
Hotel firearms policies vary by property and by state. There’s limited information online that will tell you whether a you can bring weapons onto a property and are usually advised to call hotels directly.
Assuming this hotel allows firearms, or at least ammunition, perhaps my next concern is with their lackadaisical housekeeping which didn’t notice the bullets between guests. That is, of course, unless this airport Holiday Inn is planning to implement a destination fee with bullets as one of the inclusions.
