I just finished hosting a guy who stayed for 4 nights. Upon check out I found out that he had raided my linen closet, used 3 sets of sheets (fitted + duvet cover) and 12 pillow cases and 8 towels. Without asking for permission. Nothing was stolen though, except a brand new bottle of shampoo. i guess he loved it SO much or went through the entire 7oz bottle in 4days.
The closet was not locked (yes, I know!) and we never had something like happened to us before. The guy did ask when he checked in what time the cleaning staff would come everyday. We told him that we do not provide daily cleaning; cleaning is done after he checks out. He seemed taken aback by this info. "No cleaning at all for 4 days!!? "
Apart from having to laundry A LOT of linens and towels, there was really no damage per se. I was very surprised that someone could be so inconsiderate.
Have any of you experienced something similar? Aside from installing a lock on the closet (which we finally did!) , what could you do to prevent this? Is there any recourse to this?
