This is a question Hotel Splendido

Enzyme writes, "what about awful hotels, B&Bs, or friends' houses where you've had no choice but to stay the night?"

What, the place in Oxford that had the mattresses encased in plastic (crinkly noises all night), the place in Blackpool where the night manager would drum to the music on his ipod on the corridor walls as he did his rounds, or the place in Lancaster where the two single beds(!) collapsed through metal fatigue?

Add your crappy hotel experiences to our list.

what an evening.
Well one night not long after i split up with my girlfriend, i was talking to a girl from the college i used to go to on myspace (i soon grew out of it, promise). Now i'd seen her about but had never spoken to her, i had nothing to do and she invited me out for a smoke with her and her friends, having no pot and finding her quite attractive i thought why the hell not?
So 2 hours later i was waiting at a bus stop nearby, she turns up with two charming boys in a nice little purple old lady wagon blasting out pendulum loud enough to wake the dead. Now i love my drum and bass, i cant get enough, but id rather shoot myself in the foot than have to go through that again, pendulum is so bollocks.
Finally we pull into a sketchy council estate, into a house with two of the biggest dogs ive ever seen, full of people i didn't know and i had possibly the most uncomfortable couple of hours of my life sitting there.
Finally it came to the point to go for a smoke, oh brilliant someone has a garage full of sofas everyone chills out in! So off we trot, probably near enough 1am by this point.
Now i think there must have been atleast 8 of us stuck on a couple of 2 seater sofas and a chair or 2, so that was fun. I also think one joint went around in this entire time, rendering me pretty much sober, crammed in a room full of people i didn't know, freezing. By about 3 i think maybe 3 people left, leaving us to try and share an old blanket or two between us. I think i just put my hood up and sat there for about 5 hours, while everyone else slept.

She was very nice though, and we were err, how do you say, 'close friends?' for a while after, so atleast some good came of it.
