I am normally not too fussy about lodging, so long as the room is clean and the Wi-Fi works. I figure this is a reasonable expectation at my preferred price point, which is around $100 or so before taxes, fees, and charges for accidentally breathing in the general vicinity of the mini-fridge. Then again, I generally don’t do reviews:
[L]ots of folks who review hotels online have this expectation that all hotels should be 4 star, have free breakfast with endless options for all lifestyles / palates / diets / health concerns and be as quiet as the grave for less than $100/night.
Probably the worst room I ever stayed in was in some nameless horror in Albuquerque, built in the Fifties and perhaps cleaned once or twice in the Seventies. On the upside, the bathroom floor tile was this amazing shade of cyan that made it ridiculously easy to see something that had just crawled in — and there was always something that just crawled in. (Price was $40ish, but then this was 1988.)
