to not want my husband to share a hotel room with MIL?

Husband is away attending to family business next week. It is just over an hour away from where we live.
It was agreed he would stay overnight the first night as it involves an early start and a late finish. Now I have learned that MIL has booked him and her into a twin hotel room for TWO nights.
She has always been overbearing, has no boundaries and has caused significant problems (along with FIL) over the course of our relationship.
I think this sharing a room business is grim and have told him I don't want him sharing a room with her. He thinks I am being horrible.
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

I share a room with my mum quite often if we’re on a weekend away, how on earth is it grim?! I’ve also shared a double room with my sister, shock horror, and shared a bed. You’re being ridiculous. It says more about you that you think sharing a room with family is grim to be honest, what a weird and slightly disturbing way of thinking!

It’s up to him. If he wants to share that’s fine. If not he should pipe up and tell her. I think this is more about your fears that DH will end up like fil because of the mil’s behaviour.
The irony is that if you tell DH what to do you will end up in overbearing territory too. Choose your battles. I know you mean well but this isn’t worth the hassle.
