Something to discuss ...

First, the initial story - the main report/list will come out later: TripAdvisor's Top Dirtiest Hotels in America - ABC News

Use this as a discussion about any "dirty" experiences you've had in a hotel/motel (as in DIRT dirty, people). Keep the conversation civil, and keep in mind that there is a difference between explaining an experience you've had in a hotel, and "slandering" a hotel - and slander remarks will be removed. Keep it professionally done as if you were writing a review for a travel blog. Share pics if you took them (and only pics YOU have taken please).

While offering tips on places to possibly avoid, perhaps also give a pat on the back to any place you stayed at that was exceptionally GOOD as well.

I personally love residence inn. They are nice rooms and inexpensive. Most people like full service hotels because of room service... overrated.

I can't really think of any hotels that were dirty.... most of them were the same and if not they were better than the others.

The Hotel Carter in Times Square, worst place ever.
Rooms cost $100 a night there for a reason.

Perhaps you'd care to read the room sticky in this room first, to know what is and what is not allowed here? Please read the room sticky for general room posting guidelines, and please read the first post in this thread for specifics on posting about this topic. Thank you.

Dirtiest Hotel room I EVER saw was Caribou Inn And Convention Center in Caribou, ME. I've traveled all over and literally lived out of hotel and motels for work for close to 3 years. Only 1 time have I ever asked to change rooms because the first was too nasty to stay in, and it was at this place. The second room was no better, but after calling all over the place there wasn't another room at any other hotel or motel in the area, so I went to town and bought cleaning supplies so I could at least take a shower and use the bathroom. If it had been warmer (this was in February) I would have slept in my vehicle. Management was zero help.

Best place honors would be a tie between three Mom and Pop places. Each of them were older, but maintained beautifully and the service was beyond compare. In no particular order they were: the Belmont Motel in Skowhegan, Maine. The Maple Leaf Motel in Schroon Lake, NY. and the Sunrise Landing Motel and resort in Northport, Michigan

The worst/dirtiest hotel room I've ever been to was in Danville, Virginia. I went up with a few friends from college because we had a club football game the following day. It was totally run-down and disgusting, much like the town itself.

It definitely didn't help when we talked to our opponents after the football game the following day and they said someone had been murdered in the hotel earlier in the week.

The lesson is: never go to Danville.

Those posts you delete we're indeed relevant, because it described the horrible conditions of the Hotel Carter in New York City's Time Square which used to be a brothel and a homeless shelter. This information night be useful to people who visit NYC and hoping for a cheap room in Manhattan. Its a popular hotel and I'd hate for anyone else to make the same mistake I did.

Write a quick story "review style" about any bad (or good) experiences you have had, and leave it at that. Once people start chit-chatting back and forth with comments, it's chat-room banter and will be removed. If folks don't wish to abide by the terms of this thread/discussion that's fine as I'll simply shut it down. Your choice.
