Dirtiest Hotels In The U.S.

We've all stayed in a dirty hotel room once or twice or more. My worst experience occurred at a hotel near New York LaGuardia airport. I had just returned from an overseas trip and was grossed out by the gum in one of the glasses in the bathroom, dirty trash can, and other obvious signs of an uncleaned room. But jet lag and lack of other available alternative rooms kept me from checking out and going elsewhere. I was only going to be there for a few hours, so I decided to put up with it. Here are the top ten dirtiest hotels based on TripAdvisor traveler reviews.

1. Heritage Marina Hotel, San Francisco, California
2. Days Inn Eureka/Six Flags, Eureka, Missouri
3. Tropicana Resort Hotel, Virginia Beach, Virginia
4. Super 8 Virginia Beach/At the Ocean, Virginia Beach, Virginia
5. Quality Inn, Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania
6. New York Inn, New York City, New York
7. Parisian Hotel & Suites, Miami Beach, Florida
8. Capistrano Seaside Inn, Capistrano Beach, California
9. Desert Lodge, Palm Springs, California
10. Continental Oceanfront Hotel South Beach, Miami Beach, Florida
