3 Reasons Hotels Are Just Flat-Out Gross

It's almost inevitable that at one point or another we have to stay in a hotel, be it traveling for work, visiting family, or even for vacation. Sometimes, it's impractical to stay at a beach house or condo. A simple fact no one can deny is that hotels are convenient. However, if you're a neat freak, hotels might put you in a state of panic for these reasons.

1. The Sheets

Some news channel once sprayed the sheets with invisible spray paint, that could only be seen by a black light, then checked back into the room in a different name. Every hotel still had the paint on the bed sheets. The simple facts that there is almost not enough time to change sheets for every room in the hotel.That doesn't change that it is flat out disgusting that they cannot do what they are paid for.

I once stayed at a hotel and we found a finger nail in the bed.

2. The Mattress

There are obviously no mattress covers under the sheets so what happens on the sheets seeps through. Semen, blood, urine are all most likely on the mattress you're sleeping on. They're also probably on the sheets since they don't think anyone will notice if they're clean or not. Usually they're right about that one though.

The same hotel I found a finger nail in, my boyfriend checked under the sheets and declared that it didn't have bed bugs. I was mortified because I didn't even think to check for that.

3. Literally Every Other Surface In The Room

The carpet probably has the exact same things on it as the mattress does. Some stranger has probably taken a bath in the tub you use without it being cleaned out. The toilet for sure has not been cleaned. But really, what's the difference between that and a public bathroom? Someone has definitely peed in the shower and you're standing in their urine. Hotels are just extremely unsanitary without having actual proof.

Back to the hotel of horror... There was used toilet paper in the bathroom.

To reiterate, hotels are convenient and you're usually not staying a long time. It is easy to push past all of this for one or two nights of decent sleep. But if you're like me, it grosses you out beyond belief.
