Traveling? Pack Some Dawn and Spray Cleaner

This is just wrong. Makes you think even worse of hotels, which is really tough to do.

Make sure you watch the whole thing. It gets worse as they go.

The windex part bothers me more than the not-cleaning part. I know it's gross, and we all know the horror stories and stuff, but I guess I'm weird, because this kind of thing really doesn't bother me that much. Even after watching this, I'll still continue to use the in-room glasses. And I still sleep and drool on the same disgusting pillows that hundreds of other people have slept and drooled on. I lay on top of the urine/semen/feces/blood soaked blankets in just my underwear, knowing full well that the top blanket only gets washed like once a month. I walk around in my bare feet. I guess I've just decided that I have enough to worry about, and with the amount of time I spend in hotels for work, I don't want the added stress of worrying about the cleanliness of the room.

Seriously, hotels are gross. I've seen reports on other shows like Dateline and 20/20 about motels that never change their locks or the amounts of semen in any given hotel room; that's how it goes. This is small beans; I've never died from using hotel glasses and I question how wide-sweeping this problem is. The fact is, no matter where you go, the rooms are kind of nasty but probably not overtly threatening to your health.

I'm not running around boycotting Embassy Suites either; I've found that no matter name is on the marquee, hotels are pretty independent. Holiday Inn is a great example; I've been to world-class Holiday Inn's and I've been to Holiday Inn's with bugs and dirty carpets and Norman Bates at the front desk.

I just do the responsible thing; I read reviews on hotels before checking in. You can't base anything on a name or a price, just do 10 minutes of research and you'll save yourself a whole lot of grossness. We're lucky enough to live in the information age... why not use it? If more people actually researched the things they spent money on, maybe every business owner from small proprietors to corporate CEO's would finally consider making changes.
