Parents bunk on gym floor in China while helping children settle in at college

While this doesn't look too comfortable, it looks like a pretty good way to save money on hotel costs. If this option was offered at colleges and universities in the United States for parents who are helping to move their kiddos into school, would you or your parents do it, or would the reservation at the inn a few miles from campus be kept? I have to say I think I'd do it in an effort to relive a bit of the camaraderie of dorm life from my college days, but I am just about positive my husband would not be on board with that plan.
