    Default do you like staying in hotels?

    I'm curious. I know some love it and some hate it. I love it. The tiny soaps and lotions, the maid service in the morning, the different bed. I'm like a little kid.

    yes and no. If it`s a nice clean hotel I am happy but if it`s one that I feel is iffy then I hate it!
    Your life is a result of the choices you make, if you don't like your life it's time to start making better choices.

    another question. Do you take the freebie stuff? have you ever taken anything bigger? fess up! I usually take the freebie lotions and keep them in the car or my purse. My favourite freebie though is when they have lavendar linen water.
    Biggest thing we have ever taken was two beach towels from a resort in Mexico. Dh wanted to take 4 but I talked him down to 2. tsk tsk.

    I always take the shampoo and conditioner. I also took the masks they had in packs for us for better sleeping, and the linen spray.

    We love it. DH and I are like little kids. We always walk in and explore the whole place and spend the first 15 minutes saying things like, “Woah, look at the view!“, “Awesome bathroom!“, “We got TWO pens and pads of paper!“

    We have no life... lol

    lol. I LOVE it.

    I am like you Carol and Kaisa. I walk around the room in wonder, I love the complimentary toiletries. I was quite pleased to see the Holiday Inn had Bath & Body Works products. I can't wait to stay somewhere super fancy one day and revel in that.

    I think it is a chain that does. Delta maybe? Next time I go somewhere that has one I'll save it for you Sunshine. It smells so nice on pillows! Dh thinks I'm crazy.

    We stayed at the Crowne Plaza in Niagara and got sleep masks, linen spray, potpourri sachels for the drawers, shampoo/conditioner, mini bars of soap, and deodorant.

    Most of the time I hate it. It has to be close to perfectly clean and new for me to be semi-comfortable. I used to be the room explorer too, but after seeing the results of a few investigations regarding the cleaning in hotels and the huge surge in bedbug infestations, I don't like it.

    I like them if they're in warm climates - Florida, Mexico, Dominican - I don't care as long as it's warm.

    Up here, meh. A room is a room to me.
