We have two rooms with kitchenettes.    Sink, microwave, refrigerator and coffee pot.  We also supply dishes and glasses.  

Is there a good disposable dishwashing sponge?   I hate leaving a sponge for their use.  They seem dirty even when they are cleaned in a dishwasher.  

Ideas?

Health Dept will not allow sponges. Best to buy cheap wash cloths along with kitchen towels.

Definitely dish cloths. Wash and go. No sponges in the dishwasher, I think that's been debunked.

I get dishrags at the Dollar store $5 for a stack of them. Cheap enough that if I use one to wipe up something yucky, I toss it without a thought. And I am the ultimate cheapskate.

The obvious is a cloth dishrag that can be laundered.  I have two full kitchens, real kitchens with apartment stoves and fridges on top of 6 "kitchenettes".  I do both a cloth and new in the wrapper sponge.  Costcow sells individually wrapped sponges in bulk for a good price.  Most guests won't use the sponge so they last. You can always find a use for a barely used sponge.  I wash them with the towels and reuse for other things.  One tip I recently saw suggested cutting a corner off the sponge to differentiate ones that might have been used in ucky-land.
