    stayed in a reasonable madrid hotel
    they were doing renovations the room next door during the daytime.

    stayed in another hotel in spain in palma de mallorca, 3rd floor, must have been outside the dirtbike highway

    ive stayed at an easyhotel in ipswich that i suppose is like a local homeless shelter, constantly smelled like cigarettes, and easyhotels are one step away from being podcapsule.

    only room ive ever complained about was in a premier inn in norwich - the bathroom fan was stuck on, they gave me a new room

    An apartment I rented for a week in Osaka, Japan.

    Underneath the bed was filthy, lots of dust and hair, cigarette butts, used tampons, and other trash. Bathroom had mold in spots. Pictures of the room were very deceptive. The code for the lockbox didn't work so I had to break it to get the key. Landlord (probably Chinese) tried to charge me for breaking the lockbox, but I used a virtual debit card that expired after the first charge so he wasn't able to.

    I should have pissed and shit all over the room before I left. Slumlords are scum.

    The Knights Inn at Big Bear Lake California. This was about 10 years ago. We went for Oktoberfest and the room was like $140 for a night. The door to our room had been kicked in and glued back together. There was no one working the front desk. We had to call a number and some random guy showed up with a key. Our room smelled like mildew. The bathroom was dirty. The only thing it had going for it was clean sheets and no bed bugs that I could find. We slept for 5 hours and left after there was a huge fight in the hallway and people were screaming. As soon as the coast was clear, we grabbed our shit and left. I disputed the charge with our credit card company and got the money back.

    Look at the photos. I challenge you to find a worse hotel in the US.

    My girlfriend was flying home so I decided to downgrade to a 3 star hotel in Nice for the remainder of my stay. It was an old office building turned into a hotel like 40 years ago and then never done anything since. The AC didn't work and I got a nasty dry cough so there was probably mold

    Do school trips count? We were in charge of our accommodation on all our school travels from when we were 14 or so. The first time we got the task to book accomodation we (very democratically) chose the cheapest possible youth hostel. Which turned out to be okay. We were on the same floor as miners and the neighborhood was full of junkies, so our teachers weren't ecstatic about our choice. The accommodation was clean and it was definitely worth the peanuts we paid for it. (It couldn't have been more than 1$ per person per night, cca 20 years ago.)
    Second time we went for the cheapest accommodation... We ended up in the bungalow area of a camping, one that probably hasn't been refurbished or USED for at least a good 10-20 years. The water pipe broke in one of the bungalows. The electricity wasn't working in half of them. The toilets... We went to use the ones in the restaurants nearby instead. We used the showers of a nearby pool instead. It was all filthy and the owner wouldn't let us move to some of her other properties, wouldn't issue a refund.
    Our teachers were just like... Encouraging us to continue the negotiations, but they were mostly just laughing at us failing.

    The following school trips we gave up on keeping it cheap. We went to proper hotels afterwards, and tried not to trash them up too much.

    In my adult life I still went to 2 hostels that were dodgy, but like none of them were as dodgy as that horror bungalow.

    I love Vietnam but the boomers have no idea what good cleanliness is. As to be expected considering they were all subsistence rice farmers until recently.

    I dont think about that kind of stuff. Maybe a hotel in bogota ghetto. All the rooms were facing inside an indoor court and the bottom floor was an enclosed carpark so the exhaust fumes would come up. The doors had no sound barrier and all the embarrassing sexcapades with lowlife fat hookers I brought up were readily heard. The front desk lady was really controlling and mean in a flirty kind of way and the front door was always locked due to there being 5 venezuelan drug dealers constantly outside on that corner. I got very sick there and had to end my trip.

        Of course I did. I have a celebrity friend there, was part of his entourage, and people would recognize him in the streets. He recommended it as a joke since he knew we like the putas. Well, being the real traveler I am me and mi parcero shacked up for the long term. Maybe it was only a week but we got the authentic experience at only 12 bucks a night. I can now say I've lived in the gutters, you only visit. You are a gay and that's okay but don't reply to me.

        I stayed in one just like that in Manizales for 11 days, it was great. Buzz the lady to get in - or get out. Leave your key at the desk. Only in southern Colombia did I see more relaxed postures, with many doors left open to the street.

    F1 hotel in France.

    Was a micro room, which was fine. What was not fine was that the bathroom door wasn't ceiling to floor. The other person would hear and smell everything you did and the smell would linger. There was "included" breakfast which was a yoghurt and soggy pastry in a tiny eating area that was about 4 tables big and filled with Eastern Europeans. Went back to that part of France (outskirts of Disneyland Paris) last year. The hotel had closed and the building was delapadated.

    Flamingo Las Vegas. Room itself was fine. Hotel lobby floor had a choking amount of cigarette smoke. However the worst thing was the fricking doors. They were heavy doors with a noisy latch mechanism and the shitty other guests would slam them shut. 2am and you get woken up by your headboard physically bouncing from the shock of someone nearby slamming the door.

      Try staying at Circus Circus sometime if you want to experience a truly dated and bad experience.

        Circus Circus was the worst for a long time. The guests are all gangbangers, blacks, literal homeless people, Mexicans with giant families and people who thought they were getting a deal.
        But the Rio might be worse now. It's pretty much been abandoned inside. They charge like $50/night after fees. It's where all of the ghetto blacks stay now who are in town just to smoke weed. I've never been in any casino that felt less safe.

      I stayed in a hotel in Sonora, Mexico that had a shared vent between two bathrooms. I was tall enough to look into the other bathroom and see whoever was showering from the waist up. That room was about $21 USD in pesos at the time.

      i once stayed at a suite with my parents when i was a tween - there was an open window in the bathtub to the main room.
      it was when i was a kid playing travel sports, we went on a road trip with parents to a tournament in some random town that was on an old school travel route before international travel was popular, i think probably many honeymoon roadtrips stopped at this highway hotel on the way to cottage country. Cobourg canada i think would be in the direction of prince edward county then thousand islands
      i think they also complained one of the blankets looked like it had dog hair

      Found it thanks to Google's creepy tracking history. Looks like it was taken over, either before it closed or they opened it up again (probably the former).

      Nah, there's no entrance like that now, they've built it up in every direction and use that semi-famous pink tail feather or flower design.

    North Park Inn 6250 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60659 was pretty gross. Sheets were stained, holes had been cut in the box springs, obvious blood stains could bee seen on the mattresses and box springs, it smelled powerfully weird, shit was just kinda all in states of decay and disrepair. The guests were kind of weird too. There were obvious drifters and illegal immigrants living there. I'm also reasonably certain the holes cut in the box springs were a part of some kind of drug smuggling operation.

      Yeah i've been in cheap motels with holes carved in strange places and found bags of leftover crack in one. My worst experience was a motel in Florida on the gulf coast it had roaches, bed bugs, ants, mice, and some kids directly above me would bounce a ball constantly all night long into early morning. I complained to the front desk but it never stopped. I almost went insane.

      I used to live like 3 blocks from this hotel. My wife’s parents are cheap asses and stayed here while visiting us. They said it was shit. I can only imagine. There is a men’s hotel type deal a couple blocks from here as well. One of the places you can rent by the week and get like a towel a bar of soap and have to turn your shit in to get new stuff. They have rules in there it’s like a homeless shelter with more privacy. It’s for bums. I would imagine some bums maybe hit the scratch ticket and go to this hotel with a hooker for the night instead of the men’s hotel.

    On the flipside, it was kinda cheap for Toronto and the wifi was decent. Cheapest non-shared room we could find; I was with my gf so I wanted to coom.

    Generally speaking, stay away from Toronto if you can, or frankly all of Canada. It was shit but I was relieved to not be forking out 500$ for some mid range hotel

    Was traveling for work had to be up early the next day so stayed at a cheap motel closer than the courtyard Marriott I would have stayed at. The newspaper on the front desk front page was an article about someone being killed by cops after a standoff in the hotel the week before. They didn’t even bother to throw that days copy away it was like they were trying to advertise how dangerous the place was.

    This was 5 years ago they still used the credit card thing that makes an imprint of your card on yellow paper.

    The pool in the middle was indoors and the place was just moist everywhere. Some hood rats were in the pool drinking booze and yelling at their kids. The room doors were hollow and paper thin. The bathroom had graffiti in it. I was only there for like 5 hours cause I had to get up at 4 am and go to pick up something from a factory nearby the next morning. It was a complete pile of shit. It was in Illinois. Southern Illinois.

    West Two Hostel in London. Absolute dump, worse than budget hotels in India and Pakistan. IIRC, it was a filthy little place staffed by impoverished Eastern European "volunteers" who effectively lived in the dorms. Most of the other guests were migrant workers, and there was a contingent of gypsies who'd rob other guests while they slept or went out into the city. IIRC, somebody had their phone and wallet stolen from their pocket as they slept.

    That place has long since closed, fortunately.

    being honest nearly all hotels have pillows like this. reality is that we dont have the time to wash them, people steal pillow protectors for some reason and we dont have the budget to replace the protectors/pillows

    The branding was on-point. It was about 2/3 the cost of actual hostels in the surrounding area, and it was a lot shittier.

    I found a place online and emailed about accomodations months in advance, and received confirmation about dates & pricing. When I showed up, I double checked the address since it was a run down city aparment with 5 or 6 units. I knocked on all the doors and had no answer until the last one, and it was a shirtless black guy in a durag. I explained the situation. he was confused and said I had the wrong place. As I was leaving, he had some epiphany. The guy I had emailed used a nick name, which is why he thought I was fooling him, but as it turns out, was the real landlord. Once he realized I had the right place he let me crash on his couch and use his shower, as it was fairly late. Super nice guy, nicest black guy Id ever met. Turns out he was gay tho, and I had to thwart an advance awkwardly. All good tho. Anyway, the other units were full of stuff. a few were occupied by chinese students which I eventually met. The next day I helped clean out one of the units which likely hadnt been lived in for years and was full of hoarded garbage up to your knees high in most places. Spent the rest of my stay in that unit. The boomer landlord came by and apologized for everything and gave me a better deal than previously arranged.
