People Are Sharing The Worst Hotels They’ve Been At (45 Pics)

Hotels can be fantastic places that inspire you and help you forget about all your problems. That’s what happens when hoteliers and the staff all work in sync to provide the best possible service to their guests. However, this isn’t a guarantee.

There are plenty of horrid hotels out there that make Stephen King’s hotel in ‘The Shining’ seem like a picnic near the Seine in comparison. Some hotels are so bad that they’ll have you screaming, running away and thanking the heavens that you’re safe in your own bed. Bored Panda brings you this list of the creepiest, most horrible, most disgusting hotels ever that are a shining example of what not to do. Upvote the worst hotel pictures, and share your thoughts in the comments, and check out our other posts about the worst hotel fails here and here. And scroll down for our interview with Dr. Gabor Forgacs from Ryerson University as we talk to him about the hotel industry and what makes hotels stand out from the crowd.

Hotels that scare away their customers often have a problem with cleanliness, elementary hygiene, while staff members don’t understand the rules of hospitality.

“The colors, sounds, scents plus the ambiance are all perfectly lined up: what background music is playing, what designer aroma is in the air and have toiletries scented with; the choice of fabric for carpet, curtains and upholstery; the tone and level of voice of staff as they greet guests and communicate without judging requests or behaviors, etc.,” the professor highlighted the hundred-and-one things that need to all come together to form the perfect whole.

“Great hotels provide intuitive and highly personalized service, which cannot be done over 250 rooms capacity. If a guest meets 3-5 different faces behind the front desk each time versus always the same two, that makes a huge difference. You can only do this if your hotel is not larger than that.”
