What makes this a fun scavenger hunt with a twist?
Typically scavenger hunts are reserved for at home or on a holiday like Easter or Valentines’ Day. What makes this an epically fun, unique scavenger hunt is the treasure hunt is set outside the home, often outside one’s own city or hometown. It’s a hotel scavenger hunt that makes a great activity for a resort, motel, conference center, hostel, or even a VRBO or Airbnb.
Family vacations and travel plans are so fun! While traveling in a plane or a car can be daunting and tiresome, that doesn’t mean that arriving at the hotel has to be a time to sleep. Use that travel energy and explore the room and layout of the hotel! This would be super fun for a family vacation, staycation, or even a birthday party with a hotel stay!

Make it Your Own!
Each user can make this scavenger hunt personal. Since we are all visiting different scavenger hunt locations and have various scavenger hunt participants, try some of these fun ideas to make the treasure hunt your own.
Hotel scavenger hunt ideas include…
Have a Fun Prize
Grab a few party favors or rewards for a special treat at the end of the hunt. A small prize can also act as a souvenir. Visiting Disney? Then grab a few princess party favors or mickey gifts off the internet before you travel. Hnad these items out to reward success at the end of the treasure hunt.
Count As You Go
Use the provided checklist for a hotel but allow the checklist items to add up. For example, did your team find multiple fire extinguishers? If they found 5, make that five points toward the scavenger hunt checklist total. The most points at the end of a set amount of time, wins.
Hotel Photo Scavenger Hunt
Create a virtual scavenger hunt and split up but make sure each team has a smartphone. Instead of giving each player a hotel scavenger hunt list of items, allow them to use their smartphone for a hotel photo scavenger hunt
Play like this… “The first item is a pillow.” Each team has to race and take a picture of a pillow in a group text. This can be a pillow on the couch in the lobby or a pillow in the hotel room. In the same format, have the mediator text “the next item is a local map.” Each team will race to take a picture of a local map and text it to the group. The team that returns the first image to the group, wins that round. Continue on with fun items like
- room number
- fitness room
- red chair
- funny picture in the hallway
- vending machine item

What are the rules for this resort treasure hunt?
Since a hotel treasure hunt is a public scavenger hunt, it’s essential to go over a few rules. Manors and teaming up are two of the most important scavenger hunt rules.
The indoor scavenger hunt rules are a combination of the hotel rules and your family rules. Make sure that the kids know that they shouldn’t be wandering around the hotel alone and to always be with an adult from their own family while looking for things. It’s important to also team up young kids and older kids.
Also, abide by the rules of the hotel that there is no running or disturbing the other guests! Have them take a pencil so that they can mark off the items as they find them!
