There is no loophole. There is no need for notification. There has never been an incident reported at hotels.
This isn't news this is witch hunting.

Go report on how many children this law hurts by stigmatizing the entire family.

Legislatures abuse thousands of time more children than the worst molester. There are MUCH better, more discreet ways to deal with this problem than destroying innocent children

Yes, I completely agree. The purpose of our strict sexual offender and sexual predator notification laws are to protect the public and for the overall benefit of society. The bulk of published reseach has now shown that banishing and overly stigmatizing sex offenders, especially those with a low risk of reoffending, does much more harm than good.

And in any case, which would worry your more?: that your two-day nextdoor neighbor at a Holiday Inn Express is a career criminal with a dozen burglary, theft, and assault convictions (for which there are absolutely no public notification laws) or that he is a 40 year old with one arrest for dating a 17 year-old when he was 25?

registered sex offenders, the kind that abuse 8 year olds are living, not visiting, at hotels accross america, many times mixed in with low income familied with children. This is wrong, the ststes should be sued, and travelers should know. hotel owners need to decide to earn thier money from the traveling public or the state governments but not both.
