When going on vacation or a business trip, you expect that your hotel will be in the very least, clean and comfortable. We all want the extra little luxury perks but at the very basic level clean and comfortable is expected. Unfortunately, no matter how many reviews you read, that may not always be the case. For example, when my parents and I went on a trip to the British Isles, we went with an organized that guaranteed all accommodation would be four-star hotels. And they definitely lived up to that…until Wales. Oh boy, that hotel in Wales was a hole. Just remembering it now makes my skin crawl. We arrived up in a mountainous area – the views were spectacular by the way, all endless forest and mountains – and the hotel looked like a cute little outdoorsy lodge from the exterior. But as we stepped inside things drastically changed once we went past the reception area. I’m talking loads of dead flies in the windows, strange smell in the room, mold growing in the corners of the windows, sheets that smelled musty, stained pillowcases – and that was just the room, I’m not even going to list out the horrors we found in the bathroom. And it wasn’t just our room, everyone in our tour group had very similar complaints. Needless to say, my parents and I didn’t sleep inside those sheets that night. Instead, we slept on top of the beds in our coats and prayed that nothing crawled onto us in the middle of the night.
My point is, we’ve all stayed in s*** hotels at least once in our lifetime, so lets take a look at this list of hair-raising horror hotels that’ll make us nervous to check in on our next holiday:
Here is an example of someone’s extensions getting left behind in a bed. At least, I hope they’re extensions and not anything more sinister. If I found this lurking in my bed I would be running for the hills.
A hotel that provides an electric kettle, but then tells you not to use it. That is just cruel. That’s like waving a cake pop in front of a diabetic. If you’re not going to let me use the kettle then don’t put it in my room!
But after seeing this picture I don’t think I’ll ever want to use an electric kettle or coffee maker in a hotel room again. Have you seen the inside? Gross! Always check your hotel room appliances before using them.
The sign over the door says fitness center. I see an injury lawsuit if anyone tries to go in there with all those couches. This is why I don’t work out. Nothing good ever comes from setting foot inside a gym.
I bet the lobby looks just fine and lovely. That is always how they get you. You think everything is fine until you get your key and go upstairs. Then the real horrors get unleashed…like several inches of water on the floor. Hope this person’s room was at the opposite end of the hall.
Well, whoever approved this carpet design clearly didn’t think guests would have an issue staying in a place where it looks like a murder took place.
Nothing is worse than when you finally make it to your room, you throw open the curtains, and see a wall. I’d rather overlook the hotel dumpsters than be in a box with no window. I really hope for their sake they weren’t promised an ocean view.
You are correct in that you’re looking at a picture of a toothbrush that is being used as a toilet paper holder. I’m sure there is an interesting story behind it. Do I want to know it? You bet I don’t.
A pool full of dirt. That is another one that I’m sure has an interesting story to it.
Well, this is just confusing and seems like some kind of mind game. I would be very wary about getting into an elevator like this. It’s like something you’d see in a horror film where someone gets abducted.
When a housekeeping cart in the hotel turns out to be a stolen shopping cart from Marshalls you know things are bad. I have serious doubts that any of the amenities in the hotel rooms are any good. That is if they even have amenities. Looks like things are really tight at the minute.
Normally, typos are funny. But not when it comes to food, and certainly not when it pertains to a hotel breakfast buffet. I don’t want any Coco Poops, thanks.
This wall “art” makes my skin crawl. I don’t even want to know where they got all the loose hair to make it. And you want to know what the worst part is? It’s hanging in the breakfast hall.
Not all heroes wear capes. I would set the sheets on fire if I found this note in my hotel bed.
This hotel fixed a hole in the bathroom ceiling by stuffing toilet paper into it. Don’t think I would be wanting to continue my stay there if I walked into the bathroom and saw that.
How kind of them to put a warning, but at the same time, I don’t think anyone should be staying in a hotel room where they’d be exposed to asbestos. Doesn’t that cause cancer? That’s a big no for me.
There’s a special place in hell for those who actively go out of their way to make their wifi password obnoxiously long. This is no exception.
A toilet flusher with bite marks on it. Cue ominous music. I don’t want to know the story of how the bite marks on the toilet handle came to be, I just want to check out immediately. Any hotel room where someone actively gnawed off bits of the toilet has got to be some kind of deathtrap, and I’m not sticking around to hear someone say, “Do you want to play a game?”
The good news is these aren’t bed bugs. The bad news is there are bugs of some kind in your hotel bed. It doesn’t matter what kind of bugs they are I still wouldn’t stay in the hotel, period. If I found this, it would be immediate check out and a full refund.
Much like the electric kettle from before, only this one is a lot more of a cruel taunt. No bath in site, just a shower, yet guests get greeted with this sign. Psychological torture if I ever saw it.
So tell us, what have your god-awful hotel experiences been? What is the absolute worst for you? Have they topped some of the ones on our list? Let us know!
