AAA says Massachusetts is among the “best and brightest” when it comes the cleanliness and condition of its AAA-inspected hotels.

The Bay State ranked No. 10 among the top 10 U.S. states with the most AAA-rated hotels with exemplary housekeeping. The hotels were awarded a new “Inspector’s Best of Housekeeping” award this summer, which puts them in the top 25 percent of all 27,000 of AAA’s reviewed hotels, according to a press release. Massachusetts has 463 AAA-rated hotels, and 215 of them received the award — 47 of which are in Boston. California ranked No. 1 with 982 hotels receiving the award.

“AAA has found that cleanliness and physical condition are consistently among the most important components travelers consider when looking for a hotel,” said Michael Petrone, director of AAA Inspections & Diamond Ratings, in a press release. “This new designation identifies hotels with exceptional practices.”

Recipients of the award impressed inspectors during two consecutive inspections, where experts evaluated factors such as dirt, dust, pests, equipment performance, and more. To qualify, the hotels also had to be free of AAA member complaints.

“In addition to passing AAA’s rigorous onsite inspection, the properties that have received the Inspector’s Best Of Housekeeping award have demonstrated a tremendous commitment to keeping their property in top condition — whether that be a small inn or bed-and-breakfast, a sprawling resort or a skyscraping city hotel — at all times for our members and their guests,” Petrone said in the release.
