Its impossible to to tell because there are so many potential problems with what you are doing. This ranges from having multiple at Chap. 83 tenants to running an unlicensed Hotel. To be case you should retain a lawyer to handle the notices under Chap. 715 regarding abandoned property. Adding to this you clientele is also most likely the type to be contentious so if you are intending to run anything other than a "flop house" where you don't care about regulatory entities ,this needs to be handled cautiously.
