I believe Pecha72 is right about the importance of where to park your bike. If staying in a hotel, see if you can't park it under the portico in front of the office. It's usually well-lit and often the drive is wide enough that you're not blocking traffic. Ask the night guy to keep an eye on your bike, too.
I worked the night shift in hotels for a lot of years, and I'd often have bikers ask me if they could park under the portico, and also watch their bikes. I was always glad to do it.
Every loaf of bread is a tragic story of grains that could've become beer, but didn't.
