Bad Hotel views around the world
A lot of our trips we have not entered onto the blog yet, but there have been a few bad hotel views around the world. I shall show a few here. My friends say to me that we cant always get bad views, well we do, and here is the evidence! It may help if we paid a little more for the room of course.
This is an ongoing blog update.
(Dicks notes of views still to come) Chino, Seattle, Tokyo, London, Trabzon, Tbalisi, Istanbul, Belize City video, South Africa, Doha.
Wyndham Hotel, New Orleans.
I know the brochure didn’t say we had a sea view but this was ridiculous, a view of the inside hall, nice!
Baymont, by Wyndham Inn and Suites, Hobby Airport, Houston, Texas
This video below is almost the latest one. We went to Houston Texas and got some amzing views out of the window. The was at Baymont, by Wyndham Inn and Suites, https://www.wyndhamhotels.com/baymont/houston-texas/baymont-inn-and-suites-houston-hobby-airport/overview which is near the Houston Hobby airport, and close to restaurants bars, etc. We stayed there for 3 nights. The location was fine, just a bad view! I particularly liked the Highway just across the road beyond the scrap yard.
Hotel Del Patio, Flores, Guatemala
There are 2 Hotel Del Patios in town, ours is not to be confused with Hotel Del Patio Grande, which is a lot more, er, Grander!
Within the grounds of Hotel Del Patio is a very nice courtyard with the rooms surrounding that wouldn’t be out of place in Italy. The only problem was we didn’t look out onto the courtyard, we overlooked someones washing line. Hotel was nice though.
Travelodge, Chippenham, England
If you like a nice gloomy view over a roof onto a disused car park, you cant do much better than the Travelodge in Chippenham, Wiltshire, England. To be fair, the actual hotel is new (2020) and the location is fab, but we just were unlucky that the room was not the best view. But Hey Ho, it was fairly cheap, and you don’t go to hotels to stay in the room. Well if it is by the hour then that is a different situation!
The Highland Inn, Atlanta, Georgia
The rooms are small and in need of a lick of paint, and the leg room when seated on the toilet leaves a lot to be desired. But to be fair, the place was ok. http://thehighlandinn.com/
But the views are exceptional. Of course there are nice rooms overlooking the Main Street, but alas!
Best Western Grant Park Hotel, Chicago
Best Western Grant Park Hotel, Chicago, 1100 S. Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL, 60605
Fantastic views of the apartment block across the alleyway. Cant beat it!
ibis Marrakech Centre Gare Hotel. Marrakesh Morocco.
Finding ourselves in the beautiful town of Marrakesh, Morocco, we spent a great night at the ibis Marrakech Centre Gare Hotel.
We arrived in the dead of night, and it was only in the morning that we saw the beautiful view of a pink wall. Oh well, onward and upwards.
Below is another beautiful view collected along the way.
Come to the romantic captial of the world, Milan Italy. Full of beautiful women, iconic sights and, er, a hotel view of what looks like Chernobyl!
We had a quick night at the StarHotels Grand Milan Hotel, Saronno, Milan, Italy. Again we got there in the dark and did wonder what the view was like. Next morning we were not disappointed.
Great hotel, but not sure about the view!
Kawada Hotel, on 2nd and Hill,
Travelodge, Caterham, Surrey, UK.
It is bad enough having to go to Caterham in Surrey, UK without having this for a view. I left some of the bed in view for authenticity.
Travelodge Bromsgrove UK
Just when you thought the views from a Travelodge window couldn’t get any worse, they did! We went to Bromsgrove, United Kingdom.
Call me old fashion but the only view I got from this place was people having a wee on the jumbo jet flying overhead. One of my favourite views, comparable to the one in Wyndham Hotel New Orleans (See above).
