Guest showing up 1 day early


No photo no booking - period!


I guess they could make guests read and agree to that before booking. How would you define it though? Between the hours of 7 and 10 am and between 5 and 9 or something? You have more than one guest right? Would you have to allocate slots? If I were you, I know that I would like a space of time cleared for me so I wasnt bumping into people all day.

I want to restrict my laundry hours and cant seem to do that!


This was my first laugh for the day! If it were so easy!:slight_smile:


My kitchen times are 6-10 for breakfast and 6-10 in the evening. I only allow microwave etc so they’re not in my way. With laundry I allow one load each a week and they message me to arrange a time.


Curious as to how you handle “Oh I forgot to get soap”. I get this 99% of the time especially the first time. Sometimes that is the only time they will do laundry. And that can add up. But I feel like a miser if I tell them they have to go out and buy it when we are standing right there looking at mine. Should I just include it? And buy some cheap stuff for their use?


I just provide the soap. I buy in bulk. Its only 1 load pp per week. Linen I combine as well in my big machine. The main saving is not keeping on running the machine for stupid little loads.


I am thinking of a lock on my laundry room door. I hate having to police people.
But people are wacky.

Perhaps if I’m away for a month, I would feel the need to do laundry while on holiday, but I do not get guests doing a load per day beginning 3 days after they arrive. What is with that? Does anyone else see this?


I use the laundry if available while traveling, I like to come home and unpack clean clothes. At hotels I pay for it, but I have had hotels (Hilton) hand me a handful of quarters and a box of soap not that I expect that.



Its unacceptable. I would install a coin op on the washing machine.


We have a lock on our laundry room door because it’s just easier than trying to enforce limits on laundry. Every time we’ve allowed people to use our machine they wash things like crazy with no regard for wasting water. So now we tell them there’s a laundromat five minutes away and to go use that.


One load per week stay I don’t mind. But one wash per day of 10 socks and 2 shirts I don’t get. One full wash per day I don’t even comprehend.


I would if I thought it cost efficient and not a PITA to retrofit my ancient machines with such a device!


I am thinking of doing away with the laundry amenity. The one problem is that the laundry room is directly on the other side of a door to the suite so you can obviously hear it going. But I suppose they don’t need to know whether I run a laundry service myself out of my house or just terribly territorial of my machines. :wink:


You’re under no obligation to let people use your machines. I guess it helps that there is a laundromat five minutes away which makes it a little less inconvenient for guests.
