Single Room Occupancy Hotels

Hotel-like housing providing single, private, furnished rooms for short- or long-term rental at very low rates; usually offering shared bath and kitchen facilities, with or without housekeeping, linen, or front-desk services. For similar housing but providing larger rooms or sets of rooms, generally for long-term rental and providing a larger array of services, use "apartment hotels.".
