Holiday travel undoubtedly will be running rampant in the next few weeks, and not everyone has the luxury of staying with friends or family, so you'll be forced to visit mom and dad, sister or brother, aunts and uncles while staying within the confines of a hotel room.
Whether or not that hotel room is friendly or fearful is up to you.
Undoubtedly, you'll most likely take to the internet to book that room for anywhere from one night to the better part of an entire week. Having a bad hotel room on your hands when you finally arrive is dreadful no matter the number of days in question.
Spotting a hotel room that you absolutely want to avoid starts with the planning stage first and foremost. That is a lot harder than it once was given the way photos are manipulated, cropped and doctored to make even the sloppiest and scariest hotel room look remarkably inviting.
The trick before you book is to rely on reviews and assume that if you read 100 and 80 of them are positive, you're in business. Also as far as reviews, look for common themes. If a five star hotel has nearly flawless marks, but one person writes that their bathtub was filled with roaches, that most likely is a review perpetuated by someone who really isn't giving an honest opinion.
