He is right, and you are wrong. It's not even a close call.
Are you THE host of that airbnb?

It's not a close call. Op is right, landlord is wrong, and you are wrong. Get over it.

76 is a perfectly normal temperature, a temperature you would probably consider too low in the summer, yet body temp of 98.6 is constant year round.

It's up to landlord to post restrictions on thermostat and set rates appropriately.

Here's a question for you: If the outside temperature is ten degrees and the thermostat is set at 76, what is the temperature inside the apartment?

Wrong! Not even close!

Yes, it's normal for summer...not the dead of winter.

The landlord sounds like a tightwad that wants to control other people's comfort. Maybe 76 is slightly warm, but it isn't a big deal, and certainly not worth a bad review. This miserable nitpicker is going to find fault with practically anybody that costs him 5 cents extra, airbnb isn't going to be a great fit for him.

I guess I see Airbnb as being like hotels. I'm a PAYING guest, so I should have the ability to make myself comfortable.
Hotels have written rules. If this host didn't want guests turning up the heat or taking long showers or whatever - it should have been written.

The OP said it was 76 degrees, not just set to 76.

No, he didn't. Try Reading for Comprehension. Once again, you are simply wrong.

I can't believe what I'm reading in this thread. People really crank the heat up to 80 degrees? I've never heard of such a thing, and who would think they have to tell guests not to do such obviously inappropriate things?
Your unnecessarily vulgar response tells me all I need to know. I was very clear in my post, so you’ll get no further response from me on this. Nasty.
