Top 5 Things You Don’t Want To Hear When You Check Into Your Hotel

Share with a friend

Hotel check-in can be a pleasant or horrible experience.  Here are the Top 5 Things You Don’t Want To Hear At Hotel Check-In:

5. “The Dollar Store is across the street.” When you ask housekeeping for another set of toiletries.

4. “You have to call to make sure we have a driver.”  When you call to ask about a shuttle pickup.  Even though the website states the hotel offers a 24-hour complimentary shuttle, 7 days a week.

3. “I don’t think that spider is poisonous.” When you tell the front desk clerk there is a large spider web and spider in your room.

2.  “Our hotel doesn’t have an elevator.” Said to the couple in their 70’s who are part of a 12-Day bus tour and have two very large suitcases.

1. “The rate will be X, sir.”  Replied to the man who walked up and asked how much a room was for the night.  Which is $40 less than what you are paying for the same room.
