I've noticed lately that we have many more guests who want to hang around after check-out. They are happy to take all their belongings out of their room so I can get it ready for new guests, but they want to hang around until late in the day. Usually that's not a problem, but it's happening more and more often. Also, they don't ASK if it's o.k., they TELL me they are staying. "Oh, our flight doesn't leave until this evening so we thought we'd just hang around here for the afternoon and then take a leisurely trip to the airport". Or, "We just want to relax for a few more hours. We won't be in your way, we'll just hang out in the living room." That's fine until they are thirsty, need to use the bathroom, need help with directions, etc.etc. We don't have a guest bathroom and I won't let them use the one that's my bathroom/laundry room. Today's guests never left until 4:30! I don't want to put out the snacks for the incoming guests because I'm afraid the loiterers will eat them! Anyone else dealing with this?
