Hotel Fails That Will Make You Wish You Stayed At The Bates Motel


When you stay in a hotel, it should be a stress-free experience. You’re probably there on a business trip or vacation and your hotel is supposed to be a place of rest and relaxation. Normally, hotels go above and beyond to make sure your stay is absolutely perfect, but let’s face it, not every hotel is a 5-star resort.

These hotels failed so badly that honestly, you just can’t help but laugh about it. These people definitely didn’t have the vacation of their dreams.

At What Point Do You Call For Help

You really only have a handful of options when you find yourself in this situation. The first is to just do the penguin wobble over to the toilet paper roll. The second option is that you can swallow your pride and use a towel that’s nearby and then proceed to burn the towel.

This Must Be Another Entrance To Platform 9 3/4

This is not the hotel you want to be staying at if there is an emergency. When the fire alarm goes off and you’re already in a panic, you can’t waste precious minutes deciding which wall to try and run through.

Hopefully, the door on the right is the actual exit but if not, you might have to make a break for it and pray that the wall is a magical portal like in Harry Potter.

A Look Of Pure Regret

This guy and his girlfriend traveled across the country to visit some friends, and he somehow managed to get stuck inside the shower at their hotel. His girlfriend called the front desk but it took three hours to get a repairman there to free him.

You’d probably never think to worry about getting stuck in a shower but just think on the bright side — he had three full hours to contemplate some deep shower thoughts.

The Perfect Vacation Spot

Whatever parents booked this Motel 6 for vacation hoping they could send their kids to the pool for eight hours a day are going to be seriously disappointed. I can’t decide what’s funnier about this grass-filled pool — the fact that they left the ladders in, or the fact that the shepherd’s hook is still hanging by the fence.

All of this tells me that for some reason, this Motel 6 plans to refurbish the swimming pool in the near future. Stay tuned.

We Can’t Shake This Hotel Fail Off

Look, if I went down to the restaurant in my hotel and saw they only had packets of salt and pepper, I wouldn’t be bothered at all. If I went down and saw that, for absolutely no reason, they shoved a bunch of packets into shakers, then I’d have some questions.

This almost seems like another hotel plot to bleed you out of your money. They probably charge $1 for every salt or pepper packet used.

Don’t Forget Your Towel

Picture this. You wake up in beautiful Honolulu. The sun is shining and the palm trees are gently swaying. Nothing could be a better start to the day than enjoying a cup of coffee on your balcony. All you have to do is walk through your shower to get there.

Not exactly sure why this hotel thought this was the right balcony design. Maybe they just figured everyone would want to immediately step out for a view mid-scrub.

This Helsinki Hotel Has A Hell-Sink In Their Washroom

It’s honestly amazing that simple design fails like this continue to happen. How does this sink get all the way to installation and no one along the way stopped to say, “wait one minute…”

There was a plumber, architect, contractor, and handyman who all probably worked on this sink and no one suggested getting a longer faucet. At least you know the countertop in this hotel bathroom is probably really, really clean.

This Must Be The Honeymoon Suite

Whoever designed this hotel bathroom made some serious assumptions about who would be staying there. This might be acceptable if it was the honeymoon suite for a couple who are ultra-comfortable with each other, but we can’t imagine any other situation where this would be okay.

Just imagine sharing a hotel room with Cathy from accounting only to walk in and find this. You’re about to take your working relationship to a whole new level.

Time To Run

You’d like to assume that the hotel room you’re walking into has been cleaned top to bottom, but let’s be honest, we all know that isn’t true. While the cleaning service does their best, it’s been proven that they’ll cut corners with bed sheets and towels if they can.

If I found this note in my bed sheets, it would scare me away from a hotel room faster than you can say “complimentary breakfast buffet.”
