The audio is beyond bad, so I kept this video short, but I hope it helps if anyone finds themselves in this same situation. Here is some information I found about your rights while in a hotel/motel room: (feel free to google for more information)
The 4th Amendment protects citizens from unreasonable searches and seizures. In order for the 4th Amendment to apply though, you must have a reasonable expectation of privacy in the place being searched. It is clear that you have a reasonable expectation of privacy in your own home.
The U.S. Supreme Court and California have said that you also have a reasonable expectation of privacy in hotels and motel rooms, although a limited one. Because you generally have a reasonable expectation of privacy in your hotel or motel room, the 4th Amendment applies and police generally need a warrant to search your hotel room.
California courts have said that your privacy interest generally expires by checkout time when communicated by the hotel, but may extend past that depending on hotel policies and routine practices. 2 Whether or not it extends past checkout depends on the facts and circumstances of each case. 3
In addition, if you violate hotel policy or rules or they suspect illicit activity, you may be evicted from your hotel room thus losing your privacy interest.
