I have been hosting for over a year. It has been mostly ups, with a few crazies tossed in to keep things REAL and interesting.
There is poster posted next to the apartment sink about check-out procedures: including check-out time, put keys back in box, garbage in bags and wash the dishes before you go. All my guests have followed his until recently.
My last few guests have left a pile of dirty dishes, even though the rest of the apartment is tidy. (I do grade them down and give this feedback in reviews). It is not a huge deal, but I do think it is inconsiderate. I do charge for cleaning, but the extra work and cuts into scheduled cleaning time which can be tricky and cut it short if we have guests arriving the same day.
I provide so much info prior to check-in I am contemplating sending them a note before check-out just reminding them about check-out procedures.
Does anyone else in this forum do a check-out reminder? Or have a different process in place?
