    What was the deal with those? Were they only in fleabag crummy hotels, or was it pretty standard at all places? I remember family vacations with 2 doubles that had the vibrating feature...was my dad taking us to cheapskate motels?

    Cheap Motels is the correct answer for 200.

    They used a little electric motor with a weight drilled off center and stuck to the motor shaft. Not worth the 50 cents.

    Well, I was a little young for all the possibilities I guess. :crazyguy

    I think they were there to wake up the bed bugs.
