You could use an array system in your checkbox form section.?

Basically, take your check boxes.  I am assuming that you have a defined
list of what is expected?  Correct?

Have your elements setup like such:

<input type="checkbox" name="reserve[rm1]" value="yes" /> Room #1 <input
type="checkbox" name="reserve[rm2]" value="yes" /> Room #2 <input
type="checkbox" name="reserve[rm3]" value="yes" /> Room #3 <input
type="checkbox" name="reserve[rm4]" value="yes" /> Room #4 <input
type="checkbox" name="reserve[rm5]" value="yes" /> Room #5

Then on your processing page, you know that you have 5 rooms, 1 - 5.

With this information you can check to make sure that something exists


$rooms = range(1,5);

for ( $i = 1; $i <= 5; $i++ ) {
        if ( isset( $_POST['reserve']['rm'.$i] ) {
                # Room was checked
        } else {
                # Room was NOT checked.


Something like that should do the trick.
