I think it's because they are clock radios, so they fulfill a double 
function as an alarm clock.  I just wish they'd check that the clock 
is set properly before they rent the room.

That's why I take my trusty Sony ICF-2002 with me whenever I travel. 
Of course, many hotels have lousy reception even with a good radio, 
especially if they were built in the era when foil-backed insulation 
was commonly used.
