Not terribly likely, unless entry was genuinely forcible; gun owners are fairly responsible about these sorts of things, specifically when deadly force can and cannot be used.

A man in Texas was acquitted of manslaughter charges after killing several deputies during a no-knock raid in which the police failed to announce that they were actually police, making the raid indistinguishable from a well-coordinated home invasion. Hotel staff opening your door with a keycard is fairly different from that sort of forceable entry.
