Jackson's Death Sparks Hotel Frenzy

7/1/2009 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonThe list of people who stand to make a profit off the death of Michael Jackson is endless -- and now you can add a few local hotels to the mix.

We spoke with the Fess Parker Wine Country Inn in Los Olivos, Calif. -- which is located less than a mile from Neverland Ranch. They tell us that once news hit Jackson's body might be coming to Neverland, they sold out in just 20 minutes! They are booked up solid from Thursday until Saturday.

We talked to two other hotels nearby and they say the same thing -- sold out.

IF ANYONE CAN MAKE A GO OF THAT PLACE STATION CASINOS WILL DO IT.
THEY HAVE PRIDE IN THEIR WORK AND GOOD MANAGEMENT.....PERHAPS THERE WILL BE A FUTURE OF NEVERLAND AFTER ALL.........BEST OF LUCK TO THEM AND FOR THE CHILDREN OF MJ WHO WILL IN THE FUTURE HAVE A LANDMARK FOR THEIR MEMORY OF THEIR FATHER. IT IS FITTING, MJ LOVED DISNEYLAND AND DISNEY SO MUCH ITS A GOOD PLACE FOR HIS SOUL TO REST.

It's not their fault that they're near Neverland. The problem is the nutcase people who have no lives who somehow bizarrely believe they can still "touch the magic" by "being there." How sad.

Odd. Keep mentioning flocks of people... I've only seen dozens and flocks of media. When Elvis died there were hundreds of thousands on the streets. Shut down Memphis and FTD worldwide ran out of flowers. Anyone else notice the scarcity of crying masses besides the media?

TMZ has just learned that two of the Beatles have died. Very sad. Two...entire Beatles...

You can spread it around and stuff.

Why are they "cashing in"? They are simply doing their job - providing rooms to people for a price. Isn't that what hotels/motels do?

I found it interesting that Jacko's album were the top 15 sellers on Amazon.com.

Wouldn't you think, that all these people who "loved" Jacko, would have bought his albums when he was alive and in need of the money?

If they loved him so much, it should have been a no brainer.

Why take Jackson back to Neverland? After the cops raided his ranch he said that he would never go back there again........

Why are financier Tom Barrack and the Jackson Family, Inc. taking that poor man's body back to a place that he never wanted to see again? Greed, plain and simple. When your cash cow dies, all that remains to be done is put it on public display and reap the profits. Shameless and disgusting. True fans of MJ would allow him some peace and dignity by staying away from those who would turn his death into a spectacle.
