** This is generally subverted in the [[Franchise/TalesSeries "Tales of" series]]. You are frequently offered free rests at inns, but the result is almost never dangerous or detrimental. More frequently, it is used to advance the plot.

*In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', every single time the four stay at an inn or hotel, they get attacked. Repeatedly. Despite major security and assurances of safety. It gets so bad that they accept an invitation to visit the Guardians partly because they won't be attacked inside the Guardians' city.

* In The RedwallSeries, while Inns don't seem to exist in that universe, there have been countless situations where characters bunking down (Whether in the wild, or staying at someone's home) wake up captured. Though it works both ways, many times Mooks of the villains wake up being captured by the heroes.

* Happens to Conan in one short story. Conan of all people was concerned about safety in the city he was staying in (he noticed that there was a severe lack of beggars at night) and so he makes sure to spend the night at the inn he payed for. When he's asleep, a secret door opens in the room and a cannibal comes inside to murder Conan.

* Perhaps the earliest example is found in "Destiny of an Emperor". Normally you have to conquer a town before you enter it, but you can stroll right into Gui Yang. Unfortunately, all of the buildings except the palace are blocked by townspeople who all have the same message: "My lord has sent me to welcome you with open arms to his humble castle. Our simple accommodations will surely be inadequate but we are a modest folk."

* In ''VideoGame/SuikodenI'', on Mt. Tigerwolf there's an Inn the player stops in. It soon becomes obvious that the Innkeep is up to not good when you are ButThouMust into drinking the tea (which naturally knocks everyone out). Of course, everyone's okay because the guy's boss recognizes one of you and forces the Innkeep to make an antidote.

** A free stay in Rose Town ends up with the innkeeper's son's toy coming to life and wandering out into the woods, prompting Mario and company to follow. (Said stay is free because, while it's still a toy, the innkeeper's son accidentally uses it to '''KNOCK MARIO OUT'''.)

(Said stay is free because, while it's still a toy, the innkeeper's son accidentally uses it to '''KNOCK MARIO OUT'''.)) After you defeat Bowyer, if you go back to Rose Town the innkeeper will still let you stay for free because Mario is a nice person who played with her son. Oh, and because you saved the entire town from an ''endless rain of arrows'' that made it so most townsfolk were too scared to even leave their houses--and most of the rest were frozen in place.

* When the ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' expansion ''Tribunal'' is installed, the character will be attacked by a band of assassins upon waking the first time they try to sleep. This occurs no matter how short or long the period is before sleeping, and regardless of the character's level [[GuideDangIt unless you sleep in the tutorial bedroll]]. A similar thing happens for turning into a vampire in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion''.
** Speaking of ''Oblivion'', if you choose to stay in an inn in (say that out loud three times fast) the Imperial City, it's not only attacked but, because it's actually a boat that's just been tethered to the waterfront, it's also put out to sea thereby forcing you to kill the raiding party just to get back to land. You do get a cool-looking sword out of it, though.
*** The tradition continues in Skyrim. If you do what Aventus Arentino in Windhelm says, [[spoiler: which is to kill Grelod the Kind,]] a courier will eventually come and deliver an ominous note. If you fall asleep for any length anywhere, be it your home, at an inn, or in an anonymous bedroll, [[spoiler: Astrid, the leader of the Dark Brotherhood, will kidnap you and bring you to an abandoned shack to begin the Dark Brotherhood questline]].
** There are three quests in ''Oblivion'' that will wake you up almost immediately to tell you whatever: [[spoiler:the Hermaeus Mora Daedric quest]], and the starting quests for [[spoiler: the Thieves' Guild and the Dark Brotherhood]].
** Should you happen to get a room at Moslin's Inn in Hackdirt while looking for Dar-Ma, you will be rudely awoken by a bug-eyed creep trying to club you on the head. This is in fact a homage to the above reference of "A Shadow Over Innsmouth" as Bethesda loves using H.P Lovecraft homages.
** The Benrius Manor house quest has the player chased out of his slumber by the resident ghosts. Undead are bad enough, but when they won't let you sleep? The worst.

*** Once you've reached a certain point in
the ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' expansion main quest, you may start getting attacked by Ash Zombie assassins when you sleep in civilized areas. Your only options are to sleep away from civilized areas (and risk getting attacked in your sleep by wildlife) or locate the area's Sixth House base and kill the leader. (The latter has the added benefit of waking any "Sleepers" in the area as well. Speaking with them will net you a valuable Reputation point.)

This occurs no matter how short or long the period is before sleeping, and regardless of the character's (On PC, this can occur at any time, even to a brand new character. On X-Box, this will only happen once you've reached level [[GuideDangIt unless 6.) The only place you are safe from the attack is if you sleep in the [[GuideDangIt tutorial area bedroll]]. (While inconvenient, it may be wise to sleep there until you've acquired the equipment necessary to fend off an assassin.) The assassins are level-scaled, but even a low-leveled assassin is a threat because they come wearing a full set of quality light armor and generally use enchanted short blades. A skilled player can turn these assassin attacks into a DiscOneNuke situation by sleeping repeatedly and farming the valuable weapons/armor to sell.
