11+ Hotels People Seriously Regretted Checking In To

Kasia M 31 May 2019

Traveling is at an all-time high right now. Whether you travel for work, leisure or to study, most of us have stayed at a hotel at one time or another. And most of the time everything goes as planned. But nobody is really prepared when their travel stay goes awry.

Check out these less-than-pleasant hotel surprises no one should ever encounter.

1. A Scary Headboard

What actually happened in this hotel room for this headboard to look like this? Maybe someone was having a visit from Freddy Krueger. Not cool.

2. When You Need Privacy

Hmm, is it too much to ask to have some privacy while in the bathroom? Call me crazy but this is not what I imagined.

3. A Room With A View

I have to say I'm quite embarrassed to see this hotel in Poland offer a framed picture instead of an actual window view.

4. When The Shower Is A Tad Short

I guess when it comes to hotel showers, they aren't always built to be "one size fits all". That's pretty unfortunate for this guy.

5. Safety First

It's nice to see that this hotel offers extra security features like this handy door latch. Oh wait, how is this supposed to work again?

6. More Privacy Fails

If you can believe it this is the view of the room from the hallway. The room comes with a see-through glass door. What?

7. Bad Towel Rack Placement

Because you always want to keep your dry towels right where you shower, right? Haha, someone clearly thought this idea through before implementing it.

8. When You're Scared To Leave Your Room

I would be scared to walk down this hallway even while sober, but imagine having a few drinks and it's a disaster.

9. A Nightly Surprise

When you end up with constant back pain after a supposedly restful night of sleep at your new hotel, just check under the sheets.

10. Awkward Ironing Situation

This is one of those sticky situations you wish you traveled with a real-life MacGyver. Surely, he would work something out for you here.

11. When You Desperately Need A Shower

I guess you might need to ask your next door hotel neighbor if you can use their shower because this is a no go!

12. More Shower Nightmares

And how about this one? I don't suppose you should assume the shower comes assembled when you check in to your hotel? Guess not here.

13. Inconvenient Design

Why would anyone place a towel rack right in front of the sink? How is one supposed to stand beside this and actually use the aforementioned sink?

14. When Ventilation Fails

Hmm, I guess this hotel doesn't believe in ventilation or they just forgot to supervise whoever was tasked with installing this poorly implemented vent.

This is why I'm always a bit reluctant to travel especially when I need to take a chance at staying at a new place.


Fingers crossed it all works out.
