Redeemed Bonvoy points for my parents and brother, and got a room with 1 King bed and a sofa bed. They want to charge extra $75 per day for the 3rd person even though they are just giving a sofa ...

A1 and D1 are just on point. In situations like that I’ve even asked the third person to stay in the street during lobby check in and then later just text them the room number they should head to.

Never ever declare to hotels you have more than 2 people per room. Specially in the US

Yeah never tell them and you’ll usually not have issues.

I’ve worked at a hotel. The above responses are right. Just don’t tell them you have a third person. The only reason to tell them is if the rate includes breakfast or something like that where they check the number of people that come and go.

Had four girls in a room, the hotel said we could only have 2, my two other friends stayed outside during check in and came upstairs when I texted them the room number. Worked just fine!

... sofa bed for the third person. Any tips or workarounds to avoid paying this extra fee?

And have you thought in saying your brother is no longer going? That should take the fee away, and he can always sneak in later

Thanks all.. it's a Residence Inn, they have free breakfast.. any idea if they are going to double check the # guests for breakfast?

Yeah, but one that I’ve never seen or heard of them trying to enforce at RI

Wow that’s some hot garbage. Yeah, I would never fill out the number of guests. But that’s still absurd to charge $75 in a room that clearly has sleeping spots for all. I’ve checked in to a Residence Inn with my family of 4, + extended relatives in another room, and had no issue. They even comped me a free stay when my two year old found a half drunk flask of whiskey that housekeeping missed.

I have also on some occasions just said that he is a friends living in town, visiting me and not staying for the night.

I always just say one person is going to be in the room. Not more than that. Even if it’s a child. Makes things easier and no issues with extra costs. And when you get whoever else is with you to go upstairs, they likely know but won’t say anything and if they do, just say that person is visiting you.
