It’s too close to call. A review of several “worst of” lists suggests there’s a high concentration of awful hotels in the New York area, with one or two standouts outside of Gotham. The bad properties are also likely to be owned by one chain.
But what am I waiting for? Let’s name names.
I’ll start with TripAdvisor’s list of dirtiest hotels.
1. Hotel Carter, New York City, New York
2. Continental Bayside Hotel, Miami Beach, Florida
3. New York Inn, New York City, New York
4. Eden Roc Motel, Wildwood, New Jersey
5. Airport Plaza, Brook Park, Ohio
6. Travelodge Bangor, Bangor, Maine
7. Velda Rose Resort Hotel, Hot Springs, Arkansas
8. Ramada Plaza Hotel JFK International Airport, Jamaica, New York
9. Days Inn & Suites Gatlinburg, Gatlinburg, Tennessee
That’s three hotels in the Big Apple and one in New Jersey, less than three hours away. It’s also a clear win for Wyndham, which owns the Days Inn, Ramada and Travelodge brands.
