      Good Morning Laura!
      The first thing I do is remove the bedspread!

      • Karen Hinkle says

        @Joann that’s the same thing I do to because I work at a hotel and them don’t get washed after every use like the sheets do

    • Raye Wiedner says

      Hello there! The first thing I do is open the curtains and let in some natural light. Then I set up my clothes and toiletries if I’m staying more than one night.

  3. CoffeeTime says

    Go smoke-free

    Ask for a nonsmoking floor when making your reservation.

    Not an option? Request a nonsmoking room.

    Don’t drink

    Just say no to the minibar key when checking in. You’ll save cash—and calories.

    • joann tompkins winborn says

      Most hotel rooms nowadays are non smoking rooms. You actually have to request a smoking room and may not get one as they are usually very limited.

    • Raye Wiedner says

      Those mini bars can be very costly. Be careful, I have stayed where they actually had timers on the doors and if it was open for very long, you were charged. Crazy.

    am coffee
    Toss the bed cover

    Bedspreads are notorious havens for dust mites (and worse). Stash it in the corner of the room.

    hotel bed sheets

    • joann tompkins winborn says

      This is the first thing I do!
      Having worked in hotels, I know for a fact that bedspread are not washed very often.
      They are spot cleaned if it’s an obvious stain but usually only washed once a month! Ewww,

      • Raye Wiedner says

        I’m always afraid of not just bedbugs, but other insects as well. I had to take my daughter to the hospital after she was bitten multiple times at a hotel in Galveston.

        • Karen Hinkle says

          me to I know this as I to work at a hotel motel I know all thm tricks they do and I tell u they have to clean them rm fast not much time to do a deep clean like u think

  5. CoffeeTime says


    Wipe down the TV remote and telephone with an antibacterial wipe before first use.

    Don’t reuse

    Avoid the reusable glasses, even if they have a paper cover on top (plastic sealed cups are preferable).

    • joann tompkins winborn says

      Great tip! While these have most likely been cleaned the rag that was used might not have been…

    • Raye Wiedner says

      After watching a hidden camera story on hotel cleanliness, I would never touch the glasses. I’ll only use sealed plastic glasses. I almost always have a travel mug with me, and I’d rather use that.

  6. CoffeeTime says

    Bring your own snacks

    Keeping fruit (banana, apple), bottled water, and nuts or trail mix in your room helps ensure that you don’t overdo it when eating out.

    hotel snacks

    • joann tompkins winborn says

      Never buy anything out of the fridge unless you want to pay mega prices!
      If the hotel has a free breakfast you can stash a piece of fruit in your purse and save it for later 😉

    • Raye Wiedner says

      Good tip. It might keep the kiddos away from vending machines between meals as well.

  7. CoffeeTime says

    Make white noise

    Invest in a portable “soft-noise maker” if you’re a super-light sleeper.

    Get moving

    Turn a tiny hotel room into your own personal fitness center.

    Invest in a portable exercise kit in case your hotel doesn’t have a workout room or pool. Or try this simple yoga routine, designed specifically with cramped hotel rooms in mind.

    • Raye Wiedner says

      Where there’s a will, there’s a way. You can always fit some kind of exercise in, even in the tiniest of rooms.

  9. CoffeeTime says

    Do a renovation check

    Renovations are likely to be loud, and may stir up dirt and dust, so call ahead to make sure parts of the hotel aren’t under construction.

    Unexpected maintenance? Ask to switch to a room farther away from the upkeep.

    Note the exits

    Because you’re in unfamiliar territory, take a few minutes to check out the exits closest to your room, just as a precaution.

    • joann tompkins winborn says

      Most hotels will accommodate you in room changes if they have an open room. If not ask for a discount. Chances are good you will get one.

    • Raye Wiedner says

      I am amazed at how many times I’ve been in hotels undergoing renovations. I guess they have to do it fairly often to stay up to date. I’ve never hesitated to ask for a different room, for any reason.

  10. CoffeeTime says
