VIDEO: Alligator tries to check into Florida motel

SEBRING, Fla. (WFLA) - A Quality Inn in Florida had a surprise guest try to check in on Sunday. 

The Highlands County Sheriff's Office posted a video on Facebook that shows an alligator taking a quiet stroll around the motel.  

"We aren't sure if this little guy got locked out of his room at the Quality Inn in Sebring this afternoon or what. Maybe he was just looking for the tiki bar to get a margarita, but he didn't look like he was old enough to drink and didn't appear to have any ID in his alligator skin wallet," the department jokingly posted.

The gator was eventually cornered by a licensed trapper and taken away, officials said.
