The nastiest things found in hotel rooms are...

If you've never seen the show "Hotel Impossible" on the Travel Channel, I highly recommend it.

Each episode stars hotel expert Anthony Melchiorri, who visits a boutique hotel or motel in dire need of his expertise. Whether the property desperately needs to turn its finances around or requires major renovations to attract more guests, Anthony is a hotel doctor of sorts upon which the hotel owners rely to save their business.

The show is definitely entertaining. You wouldn't believe all the things Melchiorri has discovered while combing over the properties:

  • Dust
  • Needles
  • Condoms/condom wrappers
  • Bed bugs
  • Mold
  • Bees 
  • Worn out/broken furniture and appliances
  • Semen/blood stains on chairs and beds
I'm at a hotel as we speak. Thankfully, I haven't found anything too ghastly on this trip or any prior vacations I've taken. Just yesterday, I noticed a few clothing tags strewn on the rug. I also spotted some hair on the bed and stains on the curtains. 

To be fair, I realize I'm not staying at a 5-star resort. You get what you pay for. If I were to spot something as repulsive as roaches or semen stains, I would immediately report it to management and demand we be moved to another room.

What's the most disgusting thing you've ever found in a hotel room? How'd you deal with it?
