Common sense would tell you that the more you pay for something, the better (and hopefully cleaner, in this case) it will be. Surprisingly, that logic is lost when it comes to hotels—at least according to one study.
Travel site Travelmath gathered 36 samples from nine different hotels. Researchers swabbed the bathroom counter, remote control, desk and phone in each room. Accommodations ranged from three-, four- and five-star rooms. Contrary to what one would might assume, lab results showed that the least expensive rooms were the cleanest while the priciest ones were the dirtiest.
