Hotel Nightmares | just when you thought it was safe to pull back the sheets...
Business travelers, recreational travelers, novice travelers, professional travelers, space travelers…they’ve all experienced at least once, the thrill of checking into a hotel room and seeing a slightly bleached but still clearly defined vomit puddle near the bathroom door. Or a speck of blood on the shower tile. Maybe the random collection of short curly hair behind the door. Possibly a Rorschach test pattern of white droplets and splatter on the sofa.
Finally there’s a place to share these images without the social media stigma you might get from your children, parents or spiritual advisor who would look askance and ask “What the hell is wrong with you?” followed by “What kind of dumps do you stay in? Are you really that cheap?"
At hotelnightmares.com we know that filth doesn’t operate by a star system and that nice hotels are just as likely to have a dookie stain on the bed spread as that joint your boss put you in near the New Orleans airport last week. So share, stare…we don’t care. It’s all about the ish at hotelnightmares.com

From a hotel that’s between brands where they promised ice machines on the odd numbered floors. Only the 3rd floor had one and surprisingly, it wasn’t working.

An actual first at hotelnightmares.com…a frog in a motel room, found, stumbled, hopped on in Iowa. Both the frog and the guest escaped unscathed.

This inexplicable artwork was found on the wall at a Novotel in Ghana by Patrick Smith, a commercial pilot and amazing blogger. It’s almost like a Rorschach Test. Who sees their mom? If you haven’t subscribed to Patrick, do. https://www.askthepilot.com/letter-from-ghana/

From a visitor to a major weekend autoshow event that drew 200,000 people. to the Twin Cities. “There’s nothing like stepping into the bathroom, turning on the coffee, turning on the water and then unrolling the bathmat to find a half inch long bug crawling around.”
