Most hotels provide a free wifi connection now days [ some are still 
"wired" ]. Some require you to log in with a password they give you on 
check-in, others are wide open. A lot of the "travel" food service 
places also provide a free wifi, Denny's, IHOP, MCDonalds, etc. These 
are usually wide open. Many cities are also providing a wifi "hotspot" 
in downtown areas or "tourist areas" to promote people coming to that area.

All these places pay the internet bill to get people to come spend their 
money. SO, No, your ISP can't charge you a connection fee when you use 
these services. Someone else already pays the fee.

Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans.
