Every time I sleep in a new place I've always wondered why I can't sleep more than 5 hours.

However, when I'm sleeping in Inn, Hotels, etc. I can sleep comfortably.

I wonder what the reasoning might be for those situations

I suspect that your mind doesn't register a new hotel room as a brand new experience, but rather as a familiar one. I bet the very first time someone sleeps in a hotel, their sleep quality is inferior to the 100th time, say. Even though not all hotel rooms are identical, the ones I generally stay in are similar enough that I doubt I subconsciously experience them as a strange new place.

Interesting, that's a good thought
