Fortunately, I have never stayed at any of these and have to admit that I have, generally speaking, had pretty good experiences with American hotels. At least I haven't needed a mosquito net like I did when I stayed at a hotel in China :)

Have you ever stayed at one of these hotels? Any hotel horror stories to share?


  1. Never had the displeasure of staying at one of these thankfully. :) But I've stayed in some pretty nasty places where I wished I would have had a mosquito net.

  2. I don't think it was #6, but we did book a night at a Days Inn in Florida 14 years ago. We had been on the road the whole day. I went straight to the shower - thought the room smelled a bit stale. Pulled back the comforter to hop in bed, and underneath it a blanket made of cockroaches scattered to all corners. I have never in my life screamed like that. I ran out in my robe, leaving Mr. Right in the shower and refused to go back in. We drove up to the front to return the keys and they asked us if we wanted another room. Uh, NO!
