AirBNB's rentals create dangerous and uncomfortable situations for serious tenants, and it is obvious that there is a reason these short-term rentals are illegal. AirBNB turned several buildings in my neighborhood into illegal "hotels." These "hotels" are never inspected, like a hotel should be, and are often trashed by disruptive short-term visitors who do not care about the well being of other tenants.
