DND. Even if I'm staying longer than that, I'll generally put up a DND sign as I make my own bed and keep the room clean. Now, I will exchange dirty towels if necessary, but I don't need maid service for the room for that. I'll leave a tip for the one day that my room is cleaned based on my stay (i.e. the last day/checkout day).

I never tip people that I never meet. The custom of tipping housekeeping workers is one I have never understood.
