  1. Mr. Spy says:

    Here’s how you can get something free, be incredibly nice to the staff, praise us, appreciate us, you just might become the favorite guest in the hotel and therefore, we just might go out of our way to make you feel like a king 🤴.

  2. El Verdad says:

    I house cleaned at a well-known chain where the other cleaners would proudly tell me that they could get three rooms done with one rag. What that translated to, was your coffee pot was wiped with a rag that may not only have been used to clean your toilet, but also the toilets of the two previous rooms. And yes, disinfecting wipes like Lysol wipes are an excellent idea!

    That said, there was also a well-known hotel chain in Saskatoon Canada that was reputed to be essentially legalized slavery. They would go to other countries and promise the girls working visas in Canada, but then when they arrived, they were abused horribly and forced to meet quotas that were almost twice that of other hotels, and were under constant threat of being deported if they protested. So if you're in a hotel with almost all girls that seem to be stressed and working extremely hard for long hours, that may be what you're seeing.

  3. R H says:

    Here is my question, why do other guests spy on me when I go in the shower? I am in a hotel and when I went to take a shower I could hear the other guest leave his or her room, come stand by my room and when I come out of the shower that is when they go back to their room… Has anybody else ever encountered something similar ? I am trying to understand what they could gain from doing this since I do not see a peephole or a camera for them to use to spy on me.

  4. Aubs west says:

    Here is a tip. I never shower without my flip flops, don't know what's really on the floor in hotels, no matter how many stars. Watch ocean's 11 or 12 to know how dirty all them hotels are 😭

  5. John Smith says:

    These guys don't mention the dirty needles found in rooms, the fights, the noise complaints, water leaks, drunks, homeless people trying to sneak in (or sleeping at doors), having to call the police, washers and dryers going down, GMs that are never around, owners that only care about the place being their cash cow, all sorts of stuff.

  6. JustOne SerbianGirl says:

    I work as a housekeeper in a hotel and i do wipe down every area that is touched, i wipe the tv remote and the tv as well and the phone… We are also instructed to wipe down the doors as well. So every hotel is different. The one i work at is very clean. And the blankets are clean because we wash them after every use as it should be.

  7. Al Rockman says:

    wages are crap, hours are crap, bosses watch you on camera from their own home to make sure your doing your job, you work up to 10 hours without a break becsuse of deliberate staff shortages just to save hotel money, the staff food can be food left in plastic containers for up to 3 days in fridge, so when ye people from outside ireland come here in summer just remember all of the above
