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.

We later christened it "Hotel Armageddon".
I went to New York with my mates and arrived at the hotel we'd booked on-line. We had to wait 45 minutes to be given a room, which was horrible.

We were craftily filming the manager at the front desk because he was such a stereotypical New Yorker and we liked the way he talked. Had he known, he probably wouldn't have told us the hotel was double-booked and so he'd kicked some "permanent residents" (i.e. drug addicts) out to make some space. We were sharing a bathroom with their friends, so we promptly found somewhere else to stay.

(Another guest came to complain about the lack of blankets whilst we were filming. )
