The past few years, we've stayed at a friends timeshare & have really never stayed in a "hotel" for vacation... Basically we wanted the kitchen etc. because w/ young kids this has been easier... My kids are getting a little older & I have points to redeem, so I'm going to try the hotel route next year. My kids are little: 8, 5 & 3 & we could easily fit in a standard room, but I see that a lot of times maximum occupancy is 4... Are hotels sticklers about this rule? can you pay more for a 5th person? Just wondering if anyone has experience w/ this.... Thanks all!
