I think that if you travel enough, you eventually see the good, the bad, and the ugly of hotels and Airbnbs around the country and the world.

For example, I booked an Airbnb house in Norman, Oklahoma, when I went to my friend’s wedding a few years ago. The place looked basic and fine from the photos. When we went inside, it was wonderful!

Clean, spacious, bright, in a great location. We truly lucked out.

Another time I booked a hotel room online in New Mexico because I was driving through. It looked great from the pics! When I got there, the place was…kind of a sh*thole.

The point is, you never really know what you’re getting into until you step foot in a hotel or an Airbnb. And these folks all got into some weirdness.

1. I wonder how many people have fallen down these stairs.

Time to take a tumble!

Don’t think the owner of this hotel thought this through.

2. A room with a view.

Nothing to see here…

3. A total roach motel.

Where there’s one, there’s many, many more…

4. Hey, someone’s gonna get hurt here!

They didn’t think this one through, did they?

5. No fun allowed here.

You’ll even get fined for it!

6. Just go ahead and jimmy rig it, okay?

It still doesn’t look very comfortable.

7. This is very romantic.

I think I’m getting choked up…

8. Why would you want to scare your guests like this?

That’s not creepy at all…

9. He was very proud of that TV.

And you should be, too!

10. Yeah, this was a really bad idea.

Can anyone explain this decision to us?

11. Don’t breathe the air in that room!

I wonder how much this place costs a night…

Checked in to a hotel and promptly checked out.

12. Hahahaha. This is great.

Look closely and try to find the cursor.

The carpet at my hotel was printed with the mouse cursor on it

13. Is this supposed to be stylish?

Looks like a flop house to me.
