Red Roof Inn-- the room was disgustingly dirty & they do not refund your money.
Non existent customer service- the place sucks.

About eight years ago, I took my family down to Zion National Park in southern Utah and we made the mistake of staying at the Terrace Brook Lodge in Springdale. The place was simply terrible. the place is old and we stayed on the second floor which was accessible only through an outdoor wooden staircase. The staircase was so rickety that every time I used it, I thought I would fall right through. The stair railing was propped by pieces of wood to keep it from falling over. Inside the room, I found they had attempted to paint the walls. In the process, plenty of paint had gotten on the carpet, the bathroom fixtures, the light switches, and just about everything. The heater made such a racket at night that it was hard to sleep. There was no hot water in the shower. It was truly "motel from hell".

Bedbugs do not always mean dirty. The Waldorf could have them, the top cruise ships have them on occasion. It just makes us think dirty.

For us, the dirtiest did have bedbugs and one was crawling on me in the middle of the night. But that wasn't the part that bothered us the most. It was cheap, we were going for 5 day trip to Tunica Mississippi and some sight seeing a little further south. We just wanted a place to relax a couple of days. The couple of days turned out to be one night. The towels were stained, the hall dirty, the sheets falling apart and the air barely worked. Let me tell everyone, if you don't this; Mississippi can be damned hot with little or no air the last week of August. WE learned what was meant by "if it is too good to be true" it isn't. The reviews however were not that bad.

The only really disgusting place I ever stayed in:

Red Carpet Inn - on Reistertown Road in Baltimore, Maryland.

It was in a sketchy part of town. No lobby, just an immigrant clerk not fluent in English behind bullet-proof glass window. The motel is a "U" shape configuration that once had a swimming pool inside the courtyard - but it was filled in with dirt. The outdoor stairs and railings were rusty. The inside was dismal - the walls were painted "baby vomit" green and there were cigarette burn marks on the sink and bath tubs. A naked light bulb on the ceiling. The room smelled. When I got back from dinner, there were two homeless men sitting on my front door step! There was a raunchy dude with the lowest class of street hooker checking in. Even though I paid for two nights I fled the place the next morning without getting any kind of refund.

You can read my review - and others who back up my observations - on TripAdvisor.

Upon asking the front desk for new sheets and returning to my room to make up the bed, I discovered the mattress protector was covered in hair of varying length and color from countless guests. After removing the mattress cover, which involved lifting up the mattress, I disovered that a previous guest had stuffed a pair of visibly dirty women's underwear between the mattress and the box spring that had been there for who knows how long. Throughly disgusted at this point, I decided to immediately check out of the hotel and move to another hotel.

Does anyone else have any nightmare stories like this?
Wow. Good discovery. Now it makes us wonder about how many hotels are like that.

I've never had one so bad that I actually left like that.

Worst one is a budget motel I checked into for an interview in las vegas for a job. It certainly was not "filthy" but definitely the cheaper one I've been to. The inside were quite bare and looked quite a bit older.

Ah well, no bed bugs so that was good.

It was also dirty. The biggest problem was that the hotel handled it very poorly. They just didn't care.

I suppose I've been lucky. The scariest place I stayed was in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida-- the kind of place with a clerk behind bullet-proof glass and bars on the window. The room smelled of marijuana. But the bed looked clean.

The filthiest? Numerous places in San Diego. I also once stayed at a motel in San Diego in which everything in the room was unplugged upon arrival-- television, mini fridge, three lamps, the phone and the clock.

Strangest? In Idaho I once missed a check-in because the owner decided to close the lobby at 5:30 p.m. in order to watch something on TV at home.

My brother once found a gigantic scorpion in his bed in a hotel in Costa Rica.
