I find it wierd that theres multiple hotels being built all over America everywhere. I have been working on a construction crew thats building hotels and apparently theres 100's of them going up everywhere. The funny thing is theres other hotels being built by those ones that we arem't building.

Its in every small town too.

Its hard to speculate but is there just going to be that much travel or what?

I think it is about the pressure to relocate the masses to Metro Areas...and-or along the roadway arteries/ corridors of those Urban areas...(where mass transit is presently available, without the need for new infrastructure or logistics...)

the rural homestead, the 5 acre small ...Family/Gentlemen's farm... the village is a thing-of-the-past...self determined housing is being erased from the modern landscape as part of the UN Agenda (agenda "21" isn't it)


we are slowly being herded into cosmopolitan areas and will live in domiciles the size of efficiency apartments is the short answer for building hotels/inns all over the place (it's not because the new American demographic will be more mobile) it's because the Govt will pay the owners of these buildings for the buildings conversion to public assigned living quarters.....

so for the investor~~ it is a no-brainer~...build the pigeon hole sized domiciles for the Population which is mandated to Austerity conditions in food/shelter/medical care...take the depreciation & tax advantages the new hotel provides in the meantime...

for it (the hotel rooms) will be requested as billeting~housing quarters, to resettle the millions of 'Dream Act' aliens or to relocate the former private-property owners... guaranteed the top 5%ers are being looked after by the Gov't, Lawmakers & the Muslim Brotherhood infested Administration/WH

Ill have to contemplate more on this.

Is there anything structural that is being built into these things that would confirm the theory?

Kitchenettes are a clue. All utility apts. have kitchenettes. Look at the housing in Japan. they are masters of cramming the most human flesh into the least possible living quarters.

In my area at least (South Central US) we've been building hotels for the past few years to accommodate the people who work oil-field jobs, and are away from home for weeks at a time.

In our area, the oil boom is dramatically increasing the need for hotels. It's to the point now that the cost of a room (Days Inn) is $300 a night. The oil companies are paying it without any problems. It's just a shame that all that money is not being spent on the infrastructure, roads, or welfare of the communities these companies are raping.

All in the name of "progress"...and my friggin gas cost is still going through the roof!

Greedy America!

I love capitalism and the true meaning of making money, but with great opportunity, comes great responsibility!

no.... I just reflect on my studies with Urban Pod, planning, etc.

it just seems a logical extension to utilize existing housing models under new paradigms

In japan its a necessity to build that way due to limited areas to build on and large population .. housing expense too .. have friends in tokyo with good jobs but due high cost of property they rent space to sleep at internet cafe's that have washer/dryer and shower ..

as to the op no idea .. cant see them having a tourist boom over there as not many want to get molested by the tsa when they go on holiday ..

I understand what you say Expat. My X-hubby used to travel to Japan for business. Even though his company paid for his hotel room, he'd sometimes stay in one of those slide out tubes in a honeycomb wall thingies. If they were drinking too much at dinner, and they always did, he liked to crash in one of those.

Hehe those are fun to crash in .. yep in japan gotta be able to drink if want to do business - most business gets done after office hours at the clubs over drinks .. companies give expense accounts to cover it and your expected to fully use it ..

stayed in them a few times if couldnt get a room at a ryukan ( one of the traditional hotels)

You should visit japan one day youd like it .. but go during springtime as thats best weather ..

I have also noticed a seemingly odd increase in very large hotels in my area...you wouldn't think a town of less than 40,000 would need so many- or could possible get enough traffic in our out-of-the-way location to meet expenses!

Another thing the chafes my subconscious is the number of banks! They are building at least six a year, and have been for the last fifteen+ years.
Many intersections in town have one on each corner....drive two blocks, and there's another bank or two.
I don't think there is any area that has more than four or five blocks without a bank now, except the strictly residential zoned.
Why would the same bank need to have two branches within two or three blocks of each other?
The money is not here. The average resident is poverty level or below.

Let's play some sci-fi mental ping-pong...


The new banks look like they would be great command centers....heck, even the little towns of less than 6,000 people around here have been 'gifted' with high tech mobile command centers worth close to $200.000.00!

'Important' people could stay in the nearly empty hotels, and it would only take three or four guards to insure their safety. Or, guards could insure that whoever is inside stayed inside....


Or, the faster that money is spent foolishly and mismanaged, the sooner the government can step in with a bail-out, hastening the implosion of the American way of life, reducing the middle class to the subsidy lines...

I really should take a break from ATS. My mind is spending way too much time thinking about what devious plots the government is implementing against us.

Anyone who has travelled in America in the Summer knows how many crap hotels there are out there, with no a/c and cockroaches running around the place, that cost nearly $100 bucks a night in the small towns and over $140 in the cities. In the 21st century who wants to stay there?
There is no conspiracy, its just called progress.

A possible alternative?


Industry Analysis & Industry Trends
During the recession, occupancy rates fell, and hotels and motels shelved expansion plans and delayed openings, resulting in lower underlying demand for contractors specializing in hotel and motel construction. Occupancy rates and room rates have increased steadily since then, which has helped underpin rising demand for hotel expansions and new construction. As disposable incomes rise and consumers return to spending on hotel stays, demand for construction work on hotels and motels will continue to expand due to rising occupancy rates at existing accommodations.... purchase to read more

I would also look to see if it is plumbed and wired to allow for independent metering for each apt. An example would be if natural gas came into the building and apts were in groups and those groups pipes all met in the same place. Does each unit have its own service with a meter or is it wired in a way to allow it in the future easily.

Speculation. It seems like half of them go under in about twenty years. There are dry spells with low occupancy that drain the profits occasionally. The more motels built, the less rooms get rented. People flock to the newer motel and the others that barely get paid off then close with frustrated investors. Big corporations like to drive out all the little guys so they can control the areas. Investors in these chain hotels make little money on their investment overall. Management doesn't care about investors, they care about getting their wages paid.

The same thing happens with restaurants, and people keep building them. They last ten years and another one opens and takes away their business. Nobody makes any money except the people at the top....big corporations that supply these places.

They are trying to get 3.27 billion from the government down in Texas. That will build some big hotels.

Have felt that was going on just because of observing what's going on in my small town.

Some big chains have built one or even two big hotels in this town. Another is a-building currently.

It's hard to figure out. Particularly given the likely kick-off of depopulation efforts or even "merely" WW III . . . what are they for?

One tentative hypothesis has been . . . that they know that disasters are going to be major and wide-spread . . . so perhaps an excess of hotels would be to temporarily house refugees from one disaster to another.

But that seems like an implausible explanation--at least in some respects.

It's a mystery.

Should be interesting to see what transpires.
