Oakland Apparently Home to the Second-Dirtiest Hotel in the Country

...according to TripAdvisor, at least. This morning, the travel site released a list of what it's calling the "Dirtiest Hotels in America," based on user reviews, and it looks like Oakland's very own Jack London Inn is in the honorable position of second place. SFist has culled some of the Inn's best and most colorful user comments, and the TripAdvisor site itself is replete with capslocked declarations like "HORRIBLE, DIRTY, GROSS, NASTY, NOISEY, WORSE EXPERIENCE EVER" and “Terrible is too kind of a rating for this dump; NO ONE SHOULD STAY HERE.”

Charming! At least we're better off than the Grand Resort Hotel & Convention Center in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
