I have never written a “negative” review but I feel like its the right thing to do for future hosts. I would appreciate your opinion on what I plan on writing. I am nervous about this.
Situation: This was a very young couple coming to look for an apartment in my area. They first told me they would arrive between 8-10 pm. My check-in is 4-11 pm. Around 9:30 pm, I got a text that they wouldn’t be here until midnight. I told her it wasn’t ideal but I would stay up. I don’t mind leaving a key outside, but only if I know I will meet my clients at some point before I go to bed. I’m just not comfortable having them come in while I’m sleeping. She then replied that actually the GPS said 3 hrs still, which was more like 1:30 am! I was upset but wanted to be a flexible host, and I know things happen. Well, I stayed up and they never showed up!! Then came the next day for their final night. No apologies from them when they came in. The next morning they were noisier than average clients, left a bunch of sex trash in the trash, and just left me with a bad impression. I am trying to focus only on the objective portion of the situation in my review.
Here is what I think about leaving:
"X and hey boyfriend stayed only one night of the two nights planned. My in-person interactions with them were pleasant, and they left their space clean and in good order. Unfortunately, they poorly planned their arrival time the first night, by first saying they would show up between 8-10 pm, then midnight, then 1:30 am. My check-in is 4-11 pm. As a host, I try to be present when guests check-in. This situation was really unfortunate.
