    Lets add context to these statememts and then analyze...

    You can people coming in the hotel and people going out of the hotel.
    (present progressive, activity is going on)

    Every day many people come and many people go form the hotel.
    (simple present, a statement, a fact which generally holds true everyday)

    Comparing with the first sentence, Is the second wrong?

    Every day many people come and many people go form the hotel.

    Should it be like below?

    Every day many people come in and many people go out the hotel.
