The Org has always had homes that are off-site. Even in the "old" site in update NY.
They were for non-resident guests that sometimes needed a place to stay for the night. I've stayed in them a few times. To be fair, the ones that i stayed in, didn't seem to be anything special. Just a clean place to crash for the night. You had to reserve them in advance, and you had to have a good reason to request them. Also you normally would share it with other folks.
