According to one TripAdvisor.com reader, "If there was a way to rate this with negative stars I would! -5 stars!!! Horrible, gross, worst hotel ever! Dirt, funk, mold, and horrible smell! All of that after according to the website it had been newly renovated! Yeh right! They might have put a fresh coat of paint on the outside of the building but that was it. TRUST ME DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!! PLEASE DON'T!!!!!!!!!!"
One TripAdvisor.com reader said, "When I arrived the staff lost my reservation. They were very rude but found a room for me. As soon as I got into the room and sat down on the bed i realized there were BED BUGS ALL OVER the beds, walls, everywhere!!! I was so disgusted I left and drove home. Now almost a year later bed bugs are HAUNTING ME!!! DO NOT STAY HERE!!! DO NOT!!!!!"
One TripAdvisor.com reader said, "This place was ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING. Do yourself a favor and drive 5 minutes past the Days Inn and check into a clean hotel. It took over 20 minutes for the front desk to show up and help us. Once we finally got into our room, the stench was so unbearable, it was difficult to breathe. The air was dense and everything smelled of stale cigarettes. It took numerous calls before the front desk answered and then he didn't seem to understand English. To make matters worse, there was a pile of cigarette ashes by the bed AND a DIRTY DIAPER on the rack of the "closet". When we complained the next morning, the front desk just told us they would notify the cleaning staff. We will NEVER stay at a Days Inn EVER AGAIN because of this experience."
Super 8 Virginia Beach/At the Ocean, Virginia Beach, Va.
One reader wrote to TripAdvisor.com, "This Super 8 was dirty, the halls smelt real bad. Nothing has been upgraded in what looked like years! It was ALL VERY run down! Even if if was FREE, I would never stay there again or ever recommend it to anyone! A very dirty and gross place to have to even stay one night in!"
A TripAdvisor.com reader wrote in to the site, "My wife and I booked this hotel when we attended a nearby wedding. This was by far the worst and most disgusting hotel I have ever stayed in North America. It beat out a hotel in central Turkey that had a hole in the floor toilet that doubled as the shower, or I might have said the world. To be fair, the Turkish hotel cost 5 dollars. This "Quality?" Inn was a dump. The furniture in the first room was broken and mildew covered the carpet near the window. The second room was only marginally better. I tried to get out of the reservation to no avail. Management was not helpful at all. This is a college town, so I assume its clients have low expectations."
A TripAdvisor.com wrote in, "BBB and the City of NY and reported how bad this hotel was. Dirty, had to stand on the bed to turn off and on the AC, Frig had a spliced plugin. Stains on the bedspread. Show was not clean, holes in the walls with rags stuffed in them, bug or mouse sticky traps. Stay away from this hotel, it is really bad. Booked through Hotels.com. Now way they ever stepped foot in that hotel. Wrote to them about the hotel and all they had to say was that it met their qualifications Was the last time I used Hotels.com to book anything......."
