Bad hotel experiences

I'm having one right now. This hotel has thin walls and wooden floors, noisy guests and is generally scuzzy. The batteries in the remote don't even work! I'm leaving here at the crack of dawn.

Where are you, OP?

I walked into my room, and the maintenance man was taking a shit on the toilet, with the bathroom door open.

The Mondrian in LA. Pretty, in a silly, mannered way, but the worst customer service I've ever had in a first-class hotel.

I travel a fair amount. In general, the service is better on the East Coast than in West Coast hotels, IMHO.

Luxor in Vegas. Room had a funky smell, but I was tired, didn't change rooms. Figured it was cleaning solution smell. Got awful stomach flu like symptoms. Was there for work, missed the project I was there for. Ended up adding a couple days trying to get better. 5 days total. Realized that the room was probably making me sick. Fled to the airport. Sitting waiting for flight, overhear nearby women talking about large number of drug addicts in Vegas. I am soaked in sweat and shaking uncontrollably. They looked at me, each other, got up and walked away quickly. Made it home. Slept for like 24 hours and was fine. Should have gone to a hospital, I know. Didn't want to deal with it. One time I tried to go out for medicine, just downstairs. Didn't make it to the elevator w/o starting to vomit. Went back to room, called lobby. Tried to act like I had seen someone else vomit. I started to say 'Somebody vomited' and before I got any further the man said 'we know' and hung up the line.

Usually my worst complaint is how persistent the fucking maids are. Next time I'm just going to let them come in and see me fuckin or jerkin or blowin.

Omni Houston. It would take to long to describe the comedy of errors, from failing to launder clothing to spilled food by room service. It just seemed to be run by incompetence.

Sweden, r1. There's apparently a big convention in, which is why all the decent hotels were booked. This one wasn't supposed to be bad but the area is noisy and seedy, the wifi keeps dropping out, and lots of other boring things. Oh, well.

Oops.

"too" long

"incompetents"

I was once in this awful guesthouse in the European Alps, on the Austrian/Slovenian border- there were cockroaches swarming all over the place, while I was eating dinner (which was disgusting) my chair fell apart (I'm not fat, by the way) and my friend's bed collapsed one night when we were sleeping. The good news is that this shithole recently burned down (the fire was probably set by the owners themselves, to collect the insurance money).

I was just reading about how it's getting harder and harder to use Tripadvisor (and other review sites like it) because properties are now having their staff right fake reviews.

*write not right. Damn autocorrect.

I don't think that's true. Most sites, like hostelworld or booking, allow only people who made reservations to write reviews. And you can also easily spot fake reviews on tripadvisor, because they are written from accounts which contain no other reviews or contributions.

"I'm leaving here at the crack of dawn."

Ironically those words mirror Whitney Houston's bad hotel experience.

I am staying at a Sheraton Four Points near an east coast airport. It is pretty nice- the room is very clean and comfortable and the bar is nice. No problems with the wifi.

by Tripadvisor, you lied about this one!reply 1309/28/2013

So often when you tell them the problem they know and so nothing about it.

So many hotels have doors that slam...especially with this wooden floor fashion, the noise can be horrendous. Like gun shots going off in the night. (Miami).

I once stayed at a hotel in Italy that had double doors so you wouldn't hear the noise in the corridor. More hotels should take their lead.

The Omni is next to Buffalo Bayou, the "river" (more like a creek) that flows through Houston. Well, the bayou flooded last week and buried Omni guests' cars in mud.

Circus Circus in Vegas. I'd rather have slept in the rental car.

Reeves Beverly Hills. Words can't describe the filth and nasty and bugs and smell. Lasted two nights. And I've traveled the world and put up with lots of local atmosphere but this dump was by far the absolute worst. Think unflushed bowel movement in the toilet

Some disgusting motor lodge with a "spa" attached to it on the jersey shore. It was disgusting. Starchy, scratchy sheets with stains on them. All the rooms had tv's mounted up in the corner like at a hospital. I'm convinced the ceilings were asbestos. A stifling toxic fog of perma-funk hung in the air, which clung to all of my clothes even after washing them.

It really felt like the kind of place you went to to either conduct a drug deal or commit suicide.

Paid $300 a night for the privilege. Was for a former friend's wedding. I dropped her shortly thereafter. This was definitely one of the reasons.

Anyone have a good story including a bellboy, room service boy, or someone like that?

I was on vacation with my parents (I was 10) when someone opened our hotel room with a key. The chain stopped it from opening completely. My mother slammed it shut and yelled at the guy. He apologized and left.

I drowned in the tub of the Beverly Hilton.

So I'm in this motel room with a tranny, an Egyptian dwarf and two Dominican hustlers. We've just got the goat into a split-crotch rubber suit, but it's squealing like fuck as we try to get the ball-gag into its mouth. The douche attachment we've brought has the wrong thread, and won't fit onto the shower head. And then room service tells us they are out of Moet. Sheer hell.

I heard that Circus Circus in Vegas was disgusting back in the 70s. I can't imagine what it's like now.

One time there was a bad smell in my room, coming from the bed. The maid came up to change the sheets and found a dead Japanese hooker stuffed between the box spring and the mattress.

Are there any gay joints that keep hot young studs on the staff who are discreetly available for your enjoyment?

Not in Thailand.

The Netherlands. It was insanely expensive, depressing deco (admittedly, there was a deco), and too cold/humid. I truly felt depressed that night.

Also a backpackers in Cornwall - absolutely terrible. Never seen a room so small (I swear it was under 9m2), and it had no windows. Could have died of claustrophobia in there. Staff was very unfriendly, probably hated their job. I hated, hated, hated going there. But at least it was so bad it was fun.

Here's a tip: stay anywhere that German tourists are staying. Find out what's on their tour itineraries.

Germans demand cleanliness and function. If the locks are not secure, you will find a German at the front desk instructing the clerk on how to fix them.

Germans do not simply complain; they instruct and are solution-minded. They might even offer to repair fixtures for the hotel.

Warning!!!!

All Germans look gay. And they stare. Do not interpret this as a come on.

R34: yes, Germans are "solution-minded."

Yes, Germans are very "final-solution" minded.

I once checked into and out of the Loew's Coronado Beach hotel within 5 minutes. It was beyond stale. Suite with view of beach was actually looking beyond a parking lot and across a street to the beach. Called Amex and they got me into the Hyatt Regency which was not near the beach but was at least clean. And less money.

Pocomoke city Delaware quality inn owned by East Indians. Been driving for hours so happy to have arrived somewhere. Room was super shabby ( you know when you're too scared to walk barefoot?)

My kid REALLY wanted to use the pool so I said ok - we get in and on the far end bottom I see what looks like leaves. Kid happily splashing - a passerby says " do you know the pool is full of turds?"

Omfg - I almost died. The owners solution? He fished the turds out and dumped a bottle of bleach in the pool.

I still cringe to this day.

It was on Canal Street in New Orleans, I can't recall the name of the hotel but it was a big name in a building from the 20s, and consequently extra small rooms from that era.

When we checked in, there was a dildo in the toilet. We checked out.
