It used to be an extra, but now people expect it – and are annoyed to pay for it.

It's also annoying when a hotel claims to have in room internet access and it doesn't work. Another thing to watch out for is some fancy resorts do not have ice machines so you can't make a cocktail in your room.

I read comcast is working on new routers that have one secure connection and one public access. Everyone with comcast will have these and at some point the free access will blanket the city. I quit comcast so I won't be part of it, great theory.

Note to traveler: NOTHING IS FREE!! You pay for everything, even if you don't take the time to figure out that the cost for and products and services (security, towels, televisions, etc.) you require and use will be paid by you and the price will include a profits for the manufacturers, distribution channels and the hotels. DO YOU REALLY THINK INTERNET ACCESS IN YOUR HOTEL WOULD NOT BE INCLUDED THE PRICE OF YOUR ROOM??? Do you also think the price of towels and a television are not included in the price of your room? Do you actually travel and stay at hotels? What if some hotel guests choose not to have internet? Why should they have to pay for it? Ala carte - paying for what you use is the best practice. Get a grip.

I burn through about 200 motel nights a year and I've never stayed in a hotel that didn't have free wireless internet, at least in the last 20 years. I stay in Holiday Inn Express, Comfort Suites and such.
