Besides making poor planning or travel decisions on last minute, bad hotel experiences are also expected on well-planned journeys. Yet poor taste or going to extreme bargain hunting makes things worse. So how do we know we are staying at a bad hotel? Read on.


1. Mysterious smell. Whether that’s in the bathroom or carpet that sure elicits a big ‘ewww’ and one can’t help but imagine the personalities of previous 132 guests who have checked in at the hotel and stayed in my room OR the quality of staff employed to do shortcut cleaning.



2. The ‘Bucket of Water’ That Used to Be a Bucket of Paint. 9 out of 10 times, it is called ‘Texcoat.’



3. Faulty door knobs and loose cabinet hinges. Such things may be minor but they actually reveal the state of disrepair your hotel is currently suffering. One could question the level of security or incidence of accidents especially when you’re traveling with kids or minors.



4. Beds That Look like THIS! Oh look – there are condoms on the table.



5.Bugs in the room. Personal hygiene should be the mantra for every hotel room provider. But in the age of mass travel and high hotel occupation rates, cleaning effort may be done haphazardly. This could lead to contracting disease simply by laying on bed infected with bugs and other creatures.



6.You ask for a non-smoking room but traces of nicotine still sticks in carpet or curtain. Some people are sensitive to smoke, and pretending that a room is off-limits to smokers even if it’s not just smacks dishonesty. Guests ask, what else is in this hotel room hiding from us?



7.You can’t find a TV channel good enough to watch. We’re talking at least of English news channels like BBC or CNN. Some guests don’t demand cable channels but when the only thing the television channel shows is static channel, they’ll bound to complain too.
