This is the third year in a row this Times Square hotel has won the prestigious award. As reported by USAToday.com, the Carter has received TripAdvisor reviews that will make your skin crawl, including tales of bed bugs, panicked guests running from their rooms, and despicable bathrooms. The New York Post even reported housekeeping found a woman's body under a bed last year.
The Hotel Carter may want you to believe that all is peachy-keen, but something scummy may lurk behind closed doors. Even though the price really can't be beat at $133.99 with taxes for a double this Friday, you really do get what you pay for.
