What typically happens when your stuff is in a U.S. motel or hotel past checkout time?

No specific situation; I've just always wondered "what if". Assume you got a room for the night, slept there, went out in the morning leaving your stuff in the room, and decided to stay out all day.
Do the maids unknowingly assume it's just a multi-night stay and clean around the belongings? Or do they know you needed to be out of there already and work with the front desk to figure out what to do? And if the hotel is booked solid the next night, do they move your junk out AND charge you for an extra night that you're not going to use?
