I have traveled with my uros quite a few times. Usually I go home for the weekend and I don't have to worry about hotel rooms accepting pets, but I would think that you wouldn't have to tell them that you had a uro with you at a hotel. It's not like they are going to mess up the carpets or sleep in the beds or chew the furniture...instead of going through the hassle of asking who allows reptiles, I would just take them. What I normally do to travel with my uros is, I put them in smaller plastic reptile carriers (like the kind that come from the pet store with the colored lids) and put a towel in there with them. They usually burrow under the towel and then I put them in the car. I take an aquarium for them, but I don't keep them in it on the ride over. I have found that they feel more secure if kept in small places hidden rather than being in their big enclosures that are for some odd reason to them, not in your room anymore! Later when you arrive at the hotel...take them out, turn the heat on them, cover their cages and leave them alone.
I use this method when I go home for Christmas to visit my parents(still in college) and I haven't had any problems with it so far. They are kinda skittish at first but soon they figure out its gonna be ok!
Hope this helps!!
