A hotel room invoice bills customers that stayed in a hotel, motel, resort, or other accommodation on a per-night basis, plus any added fees which can result from room-service, housekeeping, wifi, parking, gym use, or other additional amenities requested or used by the guest. Upon check-in, the receptionist will typically record the guest’s payment information and bill each fee at the time of service. Upon checkout, the guest will be presented with the invoice (in receipt format) that contains the total dollar amount that was charged to their debit or credit card.
Common Hotel Room Fees
The fees hotels charge their guests are often a double-edged sword, as they can provide an exceptional amount of increased revenue, yet have the potential of considerably upsetting the guests that stay there. Oftentimes, finding a happy medium is plausible – including a few (but not all) of the fees below.
- Minibar restocking
- Resort fees (highly controversial)
- Early check-in and check-out fees
- Gym / pool fee
- Parking fee
