Hey fellow travelers! Hope everyone's having a great week and an awesome summer!

Here's a fun forum topic that should elicit a lot of interesting responses....worst hotel stay EVER?

I love traveling, but I remember this one time I stayed in a hotel (I can't even remember where it was) and when I went into the bathroom, let's just say someone overlooked the whole 'flushing the toilet' thing, as well as the whole, 'replacing the soap in the shower and making sure it doesn't have a hair in it' thing…it was pretty disgusting, to say the least.

Check out this funny video called "Ballad of a Traveler" - this guy knows what's up with bad hotels and I'm sure we can all relate!

I work with Hampton Inn and I'd love to hear some of your stories about awful hotels or trips...bring 'em on!

this is first hand stories from 2 former lady colleagues... in our job we had opportunities of being sent abroad for official business...

the first one shared her experience in a hotel in Bangkok... I don't know the name but it's at least a 3 star hotel... anyways.. she narrates her one night experience when in the middle of night she felt something heavy over her whole body like someones on top of her...she could feel a body pushing her to the bed that she had a hard time to breathe.. she had to sleep on another room after this incident..

and another lady friend whom was with me in Hanoi.. she narrates a night where she was awakened in the middle of the night that someone or something is groping her hips... she tried to shout at it... but in a few moments she felt her bed move like someones jumping on it... the hotel is a 3 star hotel in Lang Ha district...

I thought those were night terrors--where you're awake and asleep at the same time and your mind thinks you're actually living out your dream.

Scary stuff.

Scary stuff! I've felt kind of like that before...how bizarre

Did you guys check out the video? I think it's so funny!

Anyone else have any other horror stories?

I've experienced bed bugs and ants crawling on me and cockroaches while traveling in Mexico.... but I was staying in pretty crappy hotels. The worst were the bed bugs. I never want to experience bed bugs again!

Yikes! I guess that's why they say "Sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite!" - that definitely does NOT sound like fun!!

Anyone got Labor Day plans? I'm either heading to San Diego or out to the desert with some friends for a BBQ...should be fun either way

Labor Day plans? Anyone?
