A Marriage That Had Run Its Course
“This one lady came into the lobby around 11pm, asked for the workout room so I opened it back up for her figuring she was one of those 24hr workout people. I went back in around 3am to close it up again, and she has set up a bed for herself on the treadmill. Ended up giving her our last room after she had a fight with her husband and was refusing to sleep with him.”- Reddit /u/greenmouse19
A Special Surprise
“A lady used to lurk the halls of a hotel and sneak into rooms that were being cleaned by cleaning staff. She would then proceed to take a dump in the bed and remake the sheets. Shortly after she would phone the front desk and say “I took a dump in one of your rooms” then hang up.”
To Die By Your Side (cont.)
“The next morning, someone sees a note on their door that says, “Do not enter, call the police”. It turns out that one of the old people was diagnosed with a terminal, uncurable disease and they decided to take cyanide and both pass away together after a nice evening, instead of letting the disease win. The weekend after this happened, the room was reopened and no one even knew that it happened.”
Team Edward or Jacob?
“Former hotel maid here – walked in (after being told to “come in”) on a older woman pegging a much younger man on a bed where they had replaced the hotel sheets their own Twilight inspired sheet set.”
Until death do us part
So I worked as a valet at this fancy hotel in Virginia and one Friday evening this really nice old couple pulled up and got us to unload their bags and park the car – all the stuff you do at a fancy hotel. Later that night, they have a nice dinner and drinks out on the town and return to the hotel…
Eyes Wide Shut
“Had a guest come down at 4am telling me when he woke up to put his glasses on he noticed on the wall the words “I’m watching you” written. I went with him to take a look and it seemed someone had written it with some invisible glow in the dark pen. He knew it was a joke but still wanted to switch rooms.”
American Pie Pants
“We had a guest we ended up calling “Pie Guy” – he would come into the hotel without a reservation, pay in cash + the $100 cash deposit and the next day we would find his bathroom and bathtub full of the remains of several expensive pies. He never came to the desk for his deposit, as he knew he wouldn’t be getting it back. We added his name to our “do not rent” list but he kept coming back and using different names. One time we found a torn up list in his room with the words “pie” and “pants” scribbled over and over again.”
Quick Thinking Bandits
“Went into the atrium to find a group of guests walking out the door with one of our couches, and then when they saw us, they reversed direction and told us that they had caught somebody stealing it and they were putting it back.”
Midnight Paint Job cont.
“Uh, ma’am, what is it exactly you are doing in here?” I was dumbfounded.
“I called down and said the room needed to be painted,” she said frankly.
“Ma’am, you cannot paint the walls.”
“That still does not give you free reign to paint our walls…;”
“The color was giving me a headache. I get really bad headaches. This IS a handicapped room, is it not?”
“Yes but you may not paint our walls.”
“How can you brag about handicap accessible rooms if you are not handicap accessible?”
“Handicap accessible does not mean you may paint our walls.”
“Well I’m going to need to talk to your manager.”
“Oh believe me, ma’am, you will.”
Bubbles Get In Your Toilet
“I had a weird guest who was part of a land survey crew that would come in every week. One time she called the front desk and said, “There are bubbles in my toilet. Why are there bubbles in my toilet?” I told her they might have flushed the water pipes (BSing). She then says, “Hold on, I’m going to bring some down.” I said, “Ma’am, that’s really not necessary,” but she was already off the line. About 5 minutes later she comes down the elevator with a wineglass full of clear water…
Bubbles In The Toilet (cont.)
“…;Well, it was bubbly a minute ago!” I had to walk in the back and beat my head against the wall for a bit.”
One Lucky Bride
We had a wedding reception and I hadn’t met any of the guests yet. I walked by the ballroom and there was an overweight man lying on the floor naked. I asked the bride if he was ok and she told me he was just drunk and tried to do the worm but he passed out so they left him there – then she smiled and said he’s my husband now.
