Trip Advisor Dirty Hotels on the Quicken Loans blogEwwwwwww. 

Bed bugs bites all over their bodies.

Cockroaches in the bathroom and in the bed.

Dirty sheets and smelly rooms.

Like I said, eeeewwwwwwwwwww.

These are the reviews of the hotels TripAdvisor has named the 10 Dirtiest in the U.S. And based on the reviews I read, these places are NASTY!! DANG!! Roaches all up in the towels and stuff. 

Here's a sample review of the Hotel Carter in NYC:

STAY AWAY!!!! This place is the worst hotel in the world! It makes a crack house look like a Hilton. There are mice roaches,Bed Bugs,and crack heads all living at this Hell Hole! The hotel itself smells and is filthy from the disgusting bedspread to the filthy bathroom. Just stay away!!!! more

Woah. Here is the full list:

  1. Hotel Carter, New York City, New York
  2. Continental Bayside Hotel, Miami Beach, Florida

You can read the reviews on each hotel by clicking the name and seeing what horror stories folks are sharing.

Remember, I have no idea if this is legit info, but I love TravelAdvisor and read it often when picking vacation places.

Sometimes, the DIFF can be what you know that helps you avoid getting bed bug bites. That's the kind of info I like getting.

So thank you TripAdvisor and all the people who submit hotel reviews on the site. Your info is greatly appreciated!

  1. The increase in the number of Bangalore hotels and properties in other parts of the country has to be matched with the hiring of an equally capable staff which is possible only when competent tourism educational institutes open up in the country.

  2. I don’t want to know what a mice roach is.

  3. I can’t believe either the Blue Bird Motel on Telegraph or the Grand Tulane on Grand River aren’t on this list.
    Their omission makes this list invalid.

  4. Mr. Sarcastic,
    I’m impressed with your knowledge of seedy Detroit area hotels. Is there any particular reason why you would know those two places should be on the list.
    Oh and by the way, I once stayed at a motel in Chicago where not only was I freaked out for sanitary reason (it stunk, there were roaches in the bathroom and the place was literally slimy), but I was scared for my safety. It’s a long story as to why I was there, but lets just say it was my girlfriend at the time’s fault and I never forgave her. Never.

  5. I don’t think my reasons for being there would be acceptible for publication on this blog.
    However, to get a general idea of what might have brought me to said motels, please feel free to visit my blog (by clicking on my name). My first post should enlighten you.

  6. I do not know if this information is reliable but it would be ubiera employees trained to deal with these problems, I too would like to submit ideas on p’uedan places to visit, especially if it is to not visit the same place forever.
