TripAdvisor 2009 Top Dirtiest Hotels List

164676914Tripadvisor announced the Top 10 dirtiest hotels in America, based on TripAdvisor traveler ratings for cleanliness.  This is the fourth-year running.

This awe inspiring list of dirty hotels is worth browsing through!  Here are the top three.

1) Hotel Carter, New York City, New York

I think it would have been cleaner to sleep on the street

2) Continental Bayside Hotel, Miami Beach, Florida

One bed had blood on the sheets, other body fluids smeared on the windows, exposed wires, extremely poor service.

3) New York Inn, New York City, New York

Roaches everywhere! One so big he could have helped me bring my suitcase upstairs

Here is a Wordle Word Cloud made from some of the reviewsTripadvisor Dirtiest Hotel Word Cloud

Several of these hotels have been at the top of this list a few years running.  Is there a conspiracy afoot?


  1. It’s obvious that the most of the dirtiest hotels are located in the most populated states in America. Good thing they thought of posting this though. I’d rather spend a few more bucks to stay in a clean hotel than pay cheap and sleep with the bed bugs and roaches.

  2. Yuck! I’ve been in gross hotels, but “blood on the sheets!”

  3. Bathroom says:

    i have onle seen five star or even star hotel.but first time ever seen these dirty hotels.great

  4. Makes you wonder how those folks stay in business! Wow.
