Word for Today: Xenodochiophobia

Xenodochiophobia (n) An irrational fear of foreign hotels that may include a fear that there won’t be soap, proper toilet paper, clean towels, etc.

I cannot find the word for fear of general hotel room uncleanliness, one of my favorite phobias along with a fear of airplane seats. It's not a germ phobia, per se, but a fear of strangers' bodily fluids, or anything else expelled from the body, and hair. Google is not rendering a definition, but I can't believe this is an uncommon aversion.
