Everyone loved their stay, everything was perfect. Yay!
Go to the rooms...
  • broken shower door
  • broken light bulb
  • light fixture in closet on floor
  • 2 sets of sheets bloodied
  • 2 mattress pads ditto
  • 1 mattress off the bed- figured out why when I realized it was soaking wet- they were trying to hide it
OK, now to clean the other 2 rooms...

Let's continue...
  • torn bedskirt (looks like they caught a suitcase in it)- I can't repair it now so it is, I shudder to say, taped on the backside to hold it together until I can get it off the bed, sew it up and get it back on.
  • torn wallpaper- looks like someone found a little corner loose and just pulled.
These are 5 different rooms today. What the heck went on in those rooms last night?
I had to replace the pillows on the bed with the wet mattress pad as they were wet, too. At first I thought someone had just lain down with a wet head because the pillow case was stained. No, the mattress pad was soaked. Luckily, after the last fiasco we covered all the mattresses with 'plastic' sheets.
Gomez fixed the shower door. Luckily as we had guests in that room tonight and I got an 'out of office' message when I emailed their confirmation and it's an international phone call to get in touch with them.
OK, I'm in the midst of 10 loads of laundry, most of which is still on the kitchen floor.

Oh My! It is unbelievable... really all this in one night, 5 different rooms!!! - I know this sounds like I don't believe you - I DO, really!!!
As far as the wet matress & pillows - make sure you clean everything well with disinfectant. I will not describe this here but some kinky bedroom acts could have taken place. It may not be water is all I am saying....

I just put the 8th load in the washer. I still have to do the 3 mattress pads.
I'm behind today already because of going out yesterday for 3 stinkin' hours with my aunt who I haven't seen in 8 years. This is why we tell family to NOT come here in season.

They faked you out!!! LOL
Glad you got a chuckle out of it and glad THAT would not be the reason for the wet matress.

That stinks, then you feel like you're behind for the whole next day, too. It amazes me what people think you won't notice...like wallpaper peeling!!!

I've got 3 more loads, all the big stuff now. I'll probably get one more in tonight while everyone is at dinner. But, all the sheets are done! Everything has been repaired except the wallpaper. I'm hoping the next guests don't notice it. It's under the window.

The shower door was a young couple. The wet bedding I don't know who slept in that bed. The bloodied bedding is very common. Almost everyone here last night was a mom-daughter getaway.

Maybe it's because we get way more girlfriends traveling together than romantic getaways. I know if I was planning a romantic getaway, I'd have my calendar in hand before I made a rez. (OK, not now. Now I can go whenever I want! One perk anyway.
)

We get them here, too. Not every day but at least once a month (not an intentional joke). They do actually tend to happen more when it's a group of women, but I probably don't get those groups as much as you do since we mostly have queen beds. I get more on pillowcases and hand towels - bloody drooling and shaving cuts, I guess. I figure when I have this many rooms and this many people, a high percentage of them under 50 years of age and mostly couples, it's going to happen. I've never lost any linens to it - blood is one of the easier things to get out. I much prefer those spots to the peroxide cleanser and greasy hair gel that actually ruins stuff.

I had bloody sheets from a guest who lived in the country, recuperating here after out patient surgery. They paid for the sheets.
Sometimes there was blood on pillowcases that looked like a nosebleed. I didn't want to go anywhere else on that one.
