    It seems like a fad from the 70's 80's that still lingers in hotels and motels that haven't been upgraded in some time.

    I haven't seen those in newer places for quite a while...

    The combination of the bright light and the ticking scares the cockroaches away.

    Hotel - you have never seen one in a home? I see them all time time in peoples homes.

    My bathroom as a child had one of those heat lamps - I can't picture offhand if the other bathrooms in my parents house had heat lamps - I assume so.

    Those heat lamps are nice for keeping the room warm after a shower.

    (Edit to add: I do not have one in my master bathroom, but do have one in our guest bathroom - they are very nice on sub-zero mornings!)

    So you can pee in the toilet and not on the floor.

    So you don't miss any blood splatter when you carve up the dead hooker.

    They're the same vintage as coin-operated vibrating beds. I remember those from the cheap motels when we would make our family roadtrips to FL when I was a kid.

    About as comforting as armrest ashtrays you still see in some planes.

    It's an added expense that they now can do without while still get the same money, or more, for the room. Amenities are expensive and the trend now is they don't care..
