Six actors backed out of the role of the hooker, the last being on the night before the scheduled shoot. The "hooker" seen in the film's final cut is in fact the on-set hair stylist.
Over a dozen motels in the New York/New Jersey area were approached about shooting the film there and declined. Two weeks before shooting, the Royal Motel in Wrightstown, New Jersey agreed, leading to several script changes in order to accompany the motel's layout and location.
The entire film was shot in four consecutive days. The cast and crew spent the duration of the shoot together, staying in the same rooms seen in the film.
After the New Jersey State Police showed up for reported noise complaints, the producers were forced to rent additional motel rooms to prevent regular guests from hearing the yelling in the rooms being used for shooting.
To prevent plot spoilage, the motel and spectators were under the impression they were watching the shoot of "Cabin Fever 2".
All of the cars seen in the motel parking lot belong to the cast and crew. They were moved around frequently to ensure realism.
