Try finding a U tube video on how to get it out of hotel mode or go the the TV manufacturers website to get the operators manual for your model of TV. You may see a section on the setup menu to turn hotel mode off.

SOURCE: i am at a hotel

No, not a remote problem: the tv can't get out of the Hotel mode because the control processor is no longer capable of loading the correct data from the firmware. The only way to fix that is to reload the firmware, something you can't do since the tv isn't yours.
There's nothing you can do, sorry - just ask them to replace the tv and don't attempt to mess with the next one, the owners of the hotel might take it badly and make you pay for the repair.

I accidentally locked the channel of our tv and it was asking for a 4 digit password nobody know what the password is, how can we unlock the tv?

First of all, read the manual that came with it, and if you don't have the original, look online for it, and search for the default PIN number(usually 0000, or 1234). If it has been manually changed by a previous owner, try asking them. If that doesn't get results, see if there is a Master pin # for the TV, and enter that through your ORIGINAL TV remote. Sometimes Universal ones work, but I wouldn't hold your breath. I have an ex-hotel flatscreen Philips, and it took me ages to find out that it had a Master Remote, and a secondary one for guests, and the Master one could alter the functions, like lock out the HDMI plug(to discourage plugging in your laptop, and force you to watch PPV TV, oh, yay), and I finally tracked down the master unlock for it.
Another option is, if it's a digital TV box, contact the manufacturer, and see if they can help, in regards to resetting the unit to factory settings. It will mean you will need to retune your TV to get the channels, but at least you can then chose your own passcode.
Hope that helps, and cheers from New Zealand! ;)

Locked in hotel mode. turning it off only leads to it turning itself back on during the unplug process.

Go to settings in remote and look for factory default settings and activate that.

Most hotels put a security box on the back of their TVs. Sometimes these boxes can be a pain to remove. I suggest posting what kind of box is mount behind or on your tv and asking how to remove it and reset the tv to factory defaults.
