i've learned never offer information. causes less stres later.
however, i would not get them a room next time. i would say "i was strapped for cash" or i would think of something good to say.
i can't think of much right now as i just woke up and my brain hasn't made it into the study yet.
however; what does your DH think of all this! he is where the line needs to be drawn!
good luck, lilly
I'm sorry about all this...I thought my ex-MIL was kinda weird until I read this. Little did I know, the woman is an angel. ;-)

I would pay it, then send the itemized listing to the in-laws and require them to pay me back.
I'd have as little to do with them as possible, and chalk the whole hotel room fiasco up to a very expensive lesson.
Guess that's the last time you try to do them a favor, huh?
