15 bad hotel experiences caught on camera

When we travel to a new country, we never really know what to expect when it comes to hotels. We check out the website, reviews and research the area before making a reservation.

But what we see versus what we get can be totally different things. From dirty rooms to lack of customer service, a host of mishaps may well await, and suddenly our dream holiday turns into a nightmare. Here's a selection of snaps that some disappointed patrons decided to share...
