The Worst Hotels In The World, According to TripAdvisor

by SharonKurheg

TripAdvisor is the world’s largest travel site and millions of people rely on it as a resource for reviews on travel destinations, hotels, restaurants, etc. Of course, you sometimes have to take the reviews people have written with a grain of salt. But when SO MANY people say a place is horrible, you can’t help but think maybe you should stay far, far away from it. But these are what may be the worst of the worst, complete with photos and reviews that never get better, even after YEARS…

I nominate Golden Gate in Las Vegas for the Top 10 worst.

sometimes you get what you pay for, I have stayed in some sleaze dumps over the 65 years of wondering the World, sleaze hotel or a rustic park bench could have been the choice, I stayed in a hourly hotel near the North Station in Paris, many years (1957) ago, room was eh, the hall traffic was continuous, but still better than a bench in a subway, since those were the choices,

The Miami International Airport Hotel certainly deserves mention. The worst and ugliest airport hotel in North America.

But at least during my stays (pre-Covid) the rooms were clean, which hasn’t been the case in lots of other hotels.

I take it from the headline that you’re a fan of Trainspotting?

Those are considered 3/4 stars in Europe.
Never been in a decent hotel in England.
Had a curious experience in Venice, found a renovated hotel on the internet (very small room though), made sure it had a nice bathroom and even confirmed it had an ac, but when I got there there was no elevator! So I had to bring all the family luggage up 4 floors.

We’ve been to quite a few nice places in England. Renaissance St. Pancras was gorgeous! The Great Northern was really nice, too. Base 2 Nice wasn’t luxurious but it was clean and nice. Same for Hotel Indigo in Kensington.

I have a candidate for the unfriendliest hotel ever: the NewCastle Holiday Inn in Gosforth Park -I had to stay at the hotel because of an emergency, my husband was admitted to hospital during our trip to the UK straight from the ferry to the emergency ward, so I had no cash, only my passport and euros. I had made a reservation on the phone and when I tried to pay, both my cards that had worked with the taxi failed to work, my VISA required a pincode that I had forgotten, it was 12 o clock at night, and the responsible person refused to give me access to a room, I could do nothing else, then look for an alternative hotel with my own iPhone, that would accept my VISA long number details and provide me with a room, when I finally found one it was 3 o clock in the morning, the taxi diver had the clever idea of bringing me to a near by money machine so that I could withtdraw pounds to pay him. You will not believe how unsettling this is for someone in such a situation. There are rules, there are protocols, but there is also some form of human understanding that should have a place in an organisation. it is shameful that personnel does not have the freedom to skip the rules in such situation, I will never ever take a room at a Holiday inn.
