The relativity of a 'bad hotel'

I'm staying at a chain hotel in Minneapolis that's been rated as being terrible online. The funny thing is, I look atound and there's a nice queen size bed, a TV, a desk, a table, chair, and lots of space. It's not like there are roaches crawling around. Instead, it's just not tip top compared to other hotels. The desk is kind of flimsy. People in the third world, or what used to be called the third world, live their lives in houses that are smaller than this room, sharing them with relatives, and they aren't clean and nice. But here in the U.S. staying in a room that would be much desired by a good portion of the globe is not enough.
