NEW YORK — For the third time in four years, the Hotel Carter in Times Square has been named the dirtiest hotel in America by TripAdvisor.com, according to the Daily News.
The hotel, used as a homeless shelter in the 1980s, gained infamy two years ago when a cleaning lady found a woman’s corpse stuffed under a bed, the story stated.
Hotel Manager Erwin Lumanglas said: "We are not bothered at all. Even when they tell us we’re the dirtiest hotel in the world, people are still interested in coming because of the price and the location."
Some complaints from recent patrons include:

· A steady stream of water pouring from the mirrored ceiling into an array of garbage cans arranged below that a security guard described as "a minor problem."

· A picture frame covered in a substance resembling mildew.

· Roaches, bed bugs and other vermin.

· Small and sparsely appointed rooms.

Despite the condition of the hotel and the not-so-rave reviews it receives, a room at the Hotel Carter is still $130 a night, the story noted.
Though the Hotel Carter stole the cheese, three other New York City area hotels made TripAdvisor.com''s list of dirtiest hotels, the story added.
