In total, 28 per cent of reviews linked to this hotel mentioned the lack of hygiene.
One disappointed reviewer wrote after staying there in November: ‘I found a used towel in the bathroom. Tub was very old and nasty.
‘The AC was very loud. You can hear everything happening outside the room. One of the elevators was broken which was very inconvenient.’
Another unhappy customer said after their October vacation: ‘The room décor is poorly painted over old furniture. Nothing had been dusted or sanitized. Carpets throughout were dirty and probably hadn’t been vacuumed maybe ever.
‘The bathroom wasn’t clean at all in our room, we had to buy products to clean it ourselves. The restaurants, bars, and café were below average. At least the bed slept decent and there were no bugs.’

While it scores low on cleanliness, OYO Hotel and Casino has a 4 out of 5 rating overall thanks to its convenient location and cheap price point.
In at second place in the analysis is Excalibur Hotel & Casino, with 27.20 per cent of reviews highlighting the dirty interiors.
The team at BitcoinCasinos said of the hotel: ‘The hotel rooms are riddled with bugs and looks like cleaning services aren’t used there often, if at all.
‘Excalibur prides itself on it’s historic imagery, posing in a castle-like form. Tourists made sure to note on the hotel & casino’s old-fashioned interior, many claiming that it must be modernized in order to compete with other competitors in Las Vegas.’

With 26.9 per cent of Tripadvisor reviews referencing uncleanliness, the Luxor Hotel & Casino came in at third place in the investigation
Although rooms can be booked for as cheaply as $70 per night, some guests have reported sharing their suites with several creepy crawlies and they have noted the tired interiors
One Tripadvisor traveler who stayed at the hotel in November simply titled their review ‘dirty rooms.’
Explaining what was so bad about the place, they continued: ‘Our shower had two containers – body wash and shampoo. The body wash was completely empty on our first night, therefore, the room wasn’t truly inspected before our stay.
‘When a replacement was brought to the room, I was going to replace the empty container with the new one only to fine a razor blade between the two containers that were not ours.
‘The room was not cleaned and the fact this container was empty and a razor between shows no one every really cleaned that area and missed it.’

There were a number of issues they couldn’t care less about and cut me off each time I tried to voice my concerns!

The traveler notes that the hotel looked ‘exactly the same’ as it did when they stayed there 20 years ago.
