Unexpected guests of the animal variety

I was just reading this post on Hotel Chatter about unexpected animal encounters at hotels, from deer to coati to cormorant, and I'm feeling a little deprived. I've never encountered any unexpected animals at a nice hotel, and even at the beyond-discount, slightly scary places, the worst I can remember is a gecko, who I actually liked having around in the hopes he'd eat whatever bugs might have been lurking. When I was in the Red Center of Australia, I heard it wasn't uncommon to find camels hanging out by the swimming pool of one hotel, but I never saw any.

Have you had an unexpected animal encounter at a hotel? Enquiring minds want to know!
