Hotel Maids Revealed The Most Disturbing Things They’ve Found And I’ll Just Sleep In My Car From Now On
Hotels, when you really think about it, are kind of gross. I don’t care if its a cheap one or one of the five-star variety you really never know what’s taken place in that room prior to your staying there.
They can clean the sheets and wash the bathrooms all they want, stuff gets missed.
We all just play ignorant though because where else are we going to stay when away from home?
Well, after reading some of the most disturbing things that hotel maids have discovered while cleaning rooms you might want to just never take a trip again.
Ex hotel housekeeper here who is ready to tell the story of why I quit. It was a regular day with a slightly smaller than average schedule of rooms for the day so I was in a good mood. I had 12 rooms that day. Normally I’d have 14 – 16.
So I get to my last room, excited to be close to finishing for the day and I open the door only to be greeted by a grotesque display of everything that is considered repulsive and dangerous to touch. There were… lets see if I remember this right… Used condoms filled with semen on the bed accompanied by stains which may or may not have been semen. There was blood all throughout the room. Too much blood for there to have not been a murder. Like… Jigsaw played a game in the room.
There were used needles, crack pipes, other random drug things… empty pill bottles, broken and unbroken liquor bottles, cigarette butts along with ashes and burn marks, plus tons of trash… Then the bathroom. There was piss everywhere. More blood. Vomit in the tub, in and around the toilet and… here’s the good part… ceiling. There was vomit on the ceiling. I noped out of the room and called the front desk and asked them to call the police. The cops came to investigate the blood and drug use in the room and probably the people who had rented it and checked out. I left for the day.
So the next day rolls around and I look at my sheet and see that same room. Confused, I go up to the third floor and I see the room in the same condition minus the drug stuff. Condoms, vomit, blood, bottles, cigarettes, trash, all still there.
I call the manager and tell them I’m not doing it. Its a job for a biohazard team. They tell me, “Just get what you can. Wipe everything you can off the surfaces. We’ll have a fabric cleaner come in for the rest.” Nope. I quit. I dealt with small amounts of bodily fluids on a daily basis and I was fine with it, but that was WAY too much to ask of a 17 year old kid on minimum wage. ~ GGoDDeSS
Naked man in bath. I was 16, knocked and called loudly before I walked in. He sat there with a big creepy grin on his face and visible erection. Gross. ~ allthecatsplease
I cleaned villas for a few months in my late teens. They were pretty pricey, starting at $350 with most being around $600. People were generally pretty good but maybe 1 in 5 left it pretty bad. But the most memorable stay was the Asian busload.
They turned up in a mini bus…maybe a dozen? Men and women, all in suits and looking very sensible. Us cleaners are happy, business folk usually didn’t leave much mess or cause trouble and they had booked 3 of the 10 buildings. We rocked up the next morning, after they had left, to absolute chaos. The first two buildings had 2 wheelie bins of trash. Takeaway boxes (for a place not in town), personal hygiene products packaging, wine boxes, empty shopping bags, junk food rappers etc. I was on bathrooms,and I nearly cried walking in…hair in the drains, scum 6ft up the walls, mud everywhere, spilt shampoo, soap trodden into the drain. It took much longer than it should have. Finally we finished up those two and were ready to start on the third. It was much bigger, having a large entertainment area. The first thing we noticed was the smell. Perfume, alcohol and really really strong cigars. We left the door open, and took a smoko.
The head cleaner went in first after our break and you could hear her swear…”oh shit, look what they’ve done. Jesus, what the hell?!” First, leading from the door was big drops of red wax on the wooden floor. Then lots of (beer?) bottles. Some were broken. Then more rubbish and a lot more wax. It was on the suede lounges, the kitchen benches, the bathroom basin. There were broken wine glasses in one spot, some with lipstick on them and one with blood. Blood drops from there to the sink. More bottles…dozens and dozens of drinks worth. Little piles of ash on the counters. Burn marks on the floor and lounges. It took us all day, even with extra staff, the clean. Then we had to close the larger building for several days while the smell cleared and we got replacements.
The group was contacted about the damage and told they would be charged for all the damage. They didn’t care. Apparently asked how much and just said ok. ~ crazy_chicken_lady
