Luke 2:6-7 . . While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

According to Mic 5:2, Bethlehem back then was a tiny community compared to many of the others in Judah; probably less than a 1,000 residents. I honestly doubt that all those had homes in town.

When I was a boy, I lived in a mountain community of 2,000, but the town proper itself had at most 200 actually living in it though everyone thereabouts had the town's name in their mailing address. As I recall there was only one motel even though a major interstate passed right thru the middle of town so I wouldn't be surprised if the inn spoken of in Luke 2:7 was the only one there was.

However the Greek word for "inn" appears only three times in the entire New Testament: one in Luke 2:7, another in Mark 14:14, and a third in Luke 22:11. In Mark and Luke, the word speaks of a single room: a guest chamber; i.e. a sort of bed and breakfast. In other words: the "inn" was likely nothing more than a spare room in a private home.
