Let’s Talk About The Disgusting Habits Of Hotels!

Hotels are often the best accommodations you can get when traveling. If you’re traveling to different countries, it can also be your SAFEST bet.

These buildings are usually in the middle of a city center, near a tourist spot, and are easily accessible from airports, buses, and train stations.

Since so many people stay in hotels, it probably shouldn’t come as a surprise that those rooms aren’t always as clean as they’re supposed to be. In one pre-COVID study, 81% of hotel surfaces had at least SOME fecal bacteria.

But that was before pre-pandemic, so things have changed now, right? …Not necessarily.

While travel experts say you can trust specific hotels to be clean, here’s the general issue: Hotels are in the business of making money, especially after the hospitality industry was hit so hard during covid. They earn more money by cutting corners.

What we don’t see on their websites, and while booking a room on an app, is the different ways a hotel milks its guests when checking in.

These hotels are machines that generate money for the owners and stockholders and obtain it from their honored and esteemed guests. Let’s discuss hotels’ sneaky methods to get guests to spend more money.

  1. OMG – I quit my job and have taken the summer off to travel. The Quality Inn in Tyler TX has been the most disgusting hotel I have every stayed at. Bugs, flys, roaches, no pool, dirty, door didn’t close properly, safety issues, horrible and gross complementary breakfast. I wrote to the company and told them they really needed to fix that hotel. It’s not fair the Stagg have to work in that environment.

  2. When I stay in a hotel/motel I bring along my can of Lysol and spray it on toilets, remote controls sinks and bathtub or shower floors. It may sound extreme, but after reading about housekeeping unprofessional lazy cleaning I’ll protect myself from infectious diseases. Housekeeping used to be a high standard of cleanliness. I’ve witnessed after covid was so called over, a housekeeping employee was not wearing gloves cleaning toilets and making up beds. Yikes!!

    1. When Covid hit I purchased a hand held uv lite for about $70 from Amazon and ran it over the tv remote remote and and all touchable surfaces.

    2. You are absolutely right to carry an anti-bacterial spray. When I travel I do the same thing. I spray everything until all surfaces are damp, then leave the room for a couple of hours because the fumes are overwhelming. Additionally, I never use the furniture drawers even though I spray them as well.

    3. I carry spray Lysol and a can of Hot Shot bedbug spray. You know that mattresses are infrequently cleaned or changed; most of the time a mattress stays until it’s too late and bedbugs are visible.

  3. No surprise. Unclean carpets, sheets, linens, etc. invite BEDBUGS which can adhere to you or your clothing, go home, and infect everything you have. Local health inspectors are few and far between.

  4. Hola! I’ve been following your website for a while now and

    a shout out from Lubbock Texas! Just wanted to say keep up the good work!
