People Are Sharing The Worst Hotels They’ve Been At (77 Pics)

9

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.

Dr. Forgacs from Ryerson University talked to Bored Panda about hotels, hoteliers, and analyzed what hotels can do to seem unique: “It’s pretty complex and one has to master a lot of moving parts in order to achieve that distinction.”

“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.”
