This is not only completely legal, it's how all hotels work. They have a published check-out time, which will vary between hotels but is usually somewhere between 10am and 1pm. if you wish to stay longer, you need to request either a late checkout (which may be free, or may be charged, depending on a number of factors), or pay for an extra night.

There is one thing missing from the other answers: In every hotel I ever stayed in (in total about 50), they tell you in person what the check out time is while you check in.
