TripAdvisor Names America's Dirtiest Hotels

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Every year, travel information website TripAdvisor.com releases a list of the Top 10 dirtiest hotels in America. The list is culled from reviews written by real travelers. The full list will be released Tuesday, but ABC News was given an exclusive preview of the top three hotels:

1. Grand Resort Hotel & Convention Center -- Pigeon Forge, Tenn.
TripAdvisor Average Daily Rate: $49 to $334. Average Rate (via hotel site): $49.77.

A TripAdvisor member complained about getting "bug bites on my arms and legs." The hotel said that it is under new management and is working to restore the hotel to its former glory.

2. Jack London Inn -- Oakland, Calif.

TripAdvisor Average Daily Rate: $44 to $101. Average Daily Rate (via hotel site): $45.

A member wrote, "The rooms displayed a level of filth and discomfort that mere neglect could never produce." In a statement, the hotel's general manager called the review a "gross exaggeration" by "anonymous disgruntled guests." He said that the hotel is undergoing "a detailed renovation."

3. Desert Inn Resort -- Daytona Beach, Fla.
TripAdvisor Average Daily Rate: $66 to $189. Average Daily Rate (via hotel site): $49.

A member noted that "the ceiling was peeling, the walls were cracked, there were cigarette burns throughout the room."  The Desert Inn said it believed the listing was "unjust," that it has a "great staff and facility" and more than 70 percent of its guests are repeat or referral guests.

The top 10 dirtiest hotels in the United States had the lowest cleanliness ratings on TripAdvisor.
