My current (and first guests) who initially booked for 2 nights, and extended several times, will be leaving on Thursday morning after 15 nights. Someone else is scheduled to come in that same afternoon. My official checkout time is 11 am. My official check in time is 2 pm. That gives me something like 2 to 3 hours to make sure the room is ready for the next guest.
Now, I haven’t been inside the guest bedroom since the guests arrived, so I don’t know if there are any problems.
While I don’t anticipate problems in this particular instance (I hope I’m right) this is really more a general question. Suppose there are problems. These might include significant cleaning problems, or perhaps some kind of damage. What would one do with a short amount of time (like a few hours) to fix them?
One specific question - is it correct to say that the guest room/bedroom is off limits to hosts while the guest is staying there? This is certainly my understanding.
