Get over the porn...you were there long enough...so it didn't bother you too much.

Housekeeping has to clean sometime...did you indicate that you wanted to be in the room while they cleaned? Of course they have to get into your room.

So they were nice enough to put the flowers in your room for you and now you're offended?
The only thing I would take up with management was the 1am visit and even then every hotel room I've been in has internal locks....and trust me I've been in some dumps. Was it not turned?

If your boyfriend and you hadn't had a fight and he just lost his key...would you then be upset that they replaced his key? Even after your own admission that it was well known that he was staying with you.

Sorry but it sounds to me like you're just trying to get out of paying the bill.

To the critics of the OP: Maybe she paid a month in advance, since motels offer monthly rates. Maybe she just discovered this site, and her inquiring mind still wants to know. (Join date Mar 2010.)

Wow, do you sound clueless! First of all, I had no problem with them knocking, and then coming in to clean (which happened daily, around noon) OR coming in to clean when I was out. That's standard practice. I did have a problem with them coming into my room at 1 AM, without knocking, startling my sleeping bf and myself. Second, I don't remember if I secured the deadbolt, but the fact remains SHE SHOULD HAVE KNOCKED.

Did everyone get it that time? Let's try once more...SHE SHOULD HAVE KNOCKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In what world does a motel employee enter a guest's room without knocking first?!?!?!?! At 24 years of age, I had never experienced the like before.

Third, what the heck are you talking about? I paid the full amount at the time (over a year ago now) and never once complained about any of this, although I would have had some valid complaints!

Boy, did you hit the nail on the head! Thanks for not being an idiot.

The fact that she DID NOT knock indicates she was probably entering what she thought was an unoccupied room. In 2009, I spent 147 nights in hotels and i remember at least 4 times when someone entered without knocking. Each time it was a MISTAKE where the room number was written wrong or they were in the wrong wing, or the room showed unoccupied when it was rented. It happens.

Thanks, I didn't know it was that common.

Unless it had been you or your family in the same situation. Right, Marmac?

If you believe I'm being petty, why do you continue to comment?
