When you check into a hotel, you expect the room to have been thoroughly cleaned, especially the bathroom. To see if hotels meet customers' expectations, Inside Edition painted a harmless, washable fluorescent gel onto the toilet seat, sink counter and shower floor, and then checked back the following day to see if it was still there. Of all the hotels Inside Edition checked, the dirtiest bathroom award goes to a Homewood Suites by Hilton in midtown Manhattan.
It's a frustrating crime that's happening more often than ever as packages are being snatched off porches, and most of the culprits are getting away scot-free. Inside Edition attempted to catch a porch pirate in the act by leaving bait boxes outside several different homes.

INSIDE EDITION's House of Shame series is putting more home repairmen to the test - this time to see if they give a fair deal for cleaning an air vent. After hiding cameras throughout a rented house, we called local technicians to check out vents that can build up with dust, debris and mold. One repairman tried to charge $700 to clean and sanitize the air duct system, which only needed a basic cleaning.
An Inside Edition investigation found that you might not always be getting clean bedsheets when you stay at a hotel. We visited rooms at different hotels and sprayed messages on the sheets using washable paint only visible under UV light. We checked out and booked into the same rooms the next evening. When we switched on the UV light, the painted messages were still there. The hotels
