I have stayed at some pretty bad ones too. A few times we have been in the middle of nowhere and there isn't a choice. I remember we drove over 100 miles looking for a vacant hotel room one night. It was so foggy we couldn't see the road. About 3am we finally found a hotel that had rooms available. I was grateful until we got in the room. I didn't want to touch anything and the middle of the bed was about one foot lower than the sides. It stunk too.
