This wasn't immediately apparent to me when reading the print and play copy, but there are 3 of each 3 player location, and 1 extra of each in the 4 player game. There is 1 extra Turret and Transportation Platform in Special Locations and 2 of each other special location.

You are correct.

There are 18 different basic locations and you put 1 in for every player. So in a 3 player game you have 3 of each and you add 1 more for a 4th player.

The Special location cards are 44 in total. There are 21 different ones, each twice in the game (that makes us 42) and there is also a single "special" copy of the Turret and the Transportation Platform. (This was done on purpose due to the nature of those 2 cards' abilities)

Also, the picture of Hotel and Alien Museum listed here under "exclusive promos" has the "3-player" hexagon, while the other 3 have the "special location" hexagon. Are they all supposed to be special locations (and just haven't been updated yet)?

Pay no attention to that. They are all Special locations in the printed product. (also if you move below on the campaign details, you will see they are all special locations)
