The "hotel bible" was almost assuredly placed there by The Gideons, who have made it their mission to distribute free Bibles "through designated traffic lanes of life, thus efficiently reaching a large number of people." I can't imagine why anyone in this exchange would be upset if you take The Bible. While admittedly, you can't just call up The Gideons and request a single Bible for personal use*, their website does speak about how their Bibles are "easy to use. They can be carried in a pocket or a purse..." so they must expect them to be going somewhere.

*Unless you're in the military -- just ask your chaplain if you want one.
