R+B hunk Usher's house is so busy, he often checks into a hotel whenever he wants a few days' peace and quiet.

The Yeah?! hitmaker's staff and countless visitors keep to the door to his Atlanta, Georgia, mansion constantly open, so when he needs to get away from it all he flees his own property.

He says, "I surround myself with good people. Not a huge posse, but people who have been around me for a long time and who I can trust. They're very efficient...

"When it gets too crazy at my house, because the studio is there and there are always people coming in and out, I go to a hotel for a couple of days to pull myself together."
