Not sure what you tried to accomplish. The scene was not of particarly high dynamic range (the luminosity difference between the darkest and lightest part) originally, so HDR is not needed. If you tried Tone Mapping techniques, you can do it directly without the use of HDR midstep. Below is an example using just GIMP and G'MIC (as plugin).

Ok, stuck at home at 3am doesn't give me many options... so I chose my very colorful yet very messy room. I took three exposures and ran them through photomatrix pro.

I like the result, it doesn't look fake but it cleans up the exposure issues.

I'll show the normal "correct" exposure shot (out of the 3 I took) and the HDR version.
