only truly bad experience we have had was in Tunica, Ms about 5 or 6 years ago. The price was too cheat and you know the saying: if it is too good to be true it isn't going to be good. Not going to go into details but the worst was the place was just plain dirty and the restaurant gross. The final blow was the bugs that were crawling on me in the middle of the night. Needless to say, we checked out a couple of days early and found a place we could be comfortable and happy. I am sure the bug were bed bugs and yes, I am very much aware they can be found in great hotels as well as dumps. I would never judge a hotel based on that itself, but in this case it added insult to injury. No pun intended!!! I wasn't injured just grossed out.

Another time we booked with Price LIne, last time we will do that. It is a long story, but we paid $80 for a hotel room that we found out with tax should have been $55.00. Do you think Priceline cared? Heck no.

My kids were swimmers in middle school and high school. During the club season they often had to be at meets by 6:00 or 6:30 a.m. Fairly often we booked a hotel room since most places were at least 90 minutes away. I didn't relish driving at 4:30 a.m. in the winter with often curvy, small highways.

For one meet I waited a bit too long to book a room or was being cheap or something. My daughter and I ended up at a Super 8. The room was disgusting. We kept shoes or flip flops on the entire time. The next morning I wore my daughter's flip flops to shower as the tub was coated in grossness. The dust on the room heater seemed to be growing new lives and unfortunately it was the first cold night of the year. Heat was necessary. We both woke up with sore throats and sneezing the next morning. We were supposed to stay another night. I checked out and found a different, more expensive room. The Marriott Courtyard we spent the second night at seemed like a 5 star hotel in comparison.
