Why did we stay in this terrible hotel?

This past weekend my wife and I stayed in one of the worst hotel rooms. It is actually ranked third on my list of worst hotel rooms ever. For a few reasons it was not number one on my list of worst hotels.

First, it was quiet, which allowed my wife and I to at least get a good night’s sleep. Second, my wife said the sheets were clean and the bathroom was clean. Third, the hotel has a deal with a local pizza place which allowed us to get a great discount on great tasting pizza!

So, not a total loss. For me, the quiet night’s sleep was the most important thing. Plus, it was the cheapest hotel in the area.

However, here were the problems with our particular room at the Day’s Inn in Sharonville, Ohio:

The hotel safe says to use the key in the lock. But, there was no key left in the lock. Not a big deal because we weren’t planning on using the hotel safe.

I have stayed in worse hotels. But this one was quiet (very important). In addition, my wife and I did not see any roaches or other nasty bugs. With the state of disrepair within this hotel I checked for signs of roaches. But after a thorough search I did not find roaches or any other nasty bugs (very important).

When we took our shoes off to walk across the carpet in just our white socks, our socks DID NOT change another color. That actually surprised us because the room looked terrible. We stayed in a hotel last year in which the bottoms of our white socks turned a dark shade of grayish- brown.

My wife and I felt like it was pointless to complain to the management of the Day’s Inn. The room quality is a reflection of management quality.

Would my wife and I stay in this hotel again? No.

Would my wife and I recommend this hotel to others? No.

So what is the worst hotel you have ever stayed in? What made it terrible? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
