Hotel Workers Share The Funniest Experiences They Have Had With Naked Guests Getting Locked Out

Working in a hotel places you in contact with so many different people––and the stories you gather after just a short while can make you the life of the party.

"Hotel staff of Reddit, how often do you catch people nude in the halls and what's your best story?" –– This was today's burning question from Redditor Leprichaun17, and it demonstrated that working at a hotel can be a racier experience than others might personally imagine.


"I worked night audit..."

I caught someone once. Well I didn't have to catch them. They came to me.

I worked night audit at a local hotel. One night/ morning around 5am I was at the desk when the elevator started moving. At the time we didn't have cameras so I didn't know what to expect.

When it stopped in the lobby the doors opened and I see a man with a cart looking slightly shocked. Then from the blind spot from where I was standing out stepped a man with a cigarette in hand and nothing but a small towel around his waist. He looked pissed. He stormed up to the desk and demanded a new room key. All while yelling about how he got lost in the "confusing AF rooms." I confirmed his room best I could given the situation and sent him on his way. The poor man that was in the elevator with him looked like he saw more than I did and didn't want to talk about it.

An hour later the man came down to the lobby to check out and demanded a "full refund for embarrassing him and for not clearly labelling the balcony door and the hallway door.' I laughed and told him to call my manager. Which he did later that day.

Kicker is the room he was in had 2 doors. A bathroom door on one side of the room. And on the completely other side with a fire map, chain lock and dead bolt the room door. There was no balcony attached to his room.

"Last week..."

Last week I had to shoo an amorous couple out from behind the dumpster. Our hotel has the worst-smelling dumpster I've ever had the displeasure of experiencing. The thought of anything sexual going on back there is enough to make me gag.

"Did I just see a naked man?"

I used to work as overnight auditor for a hotel. One day while I was doing rounds at 3 am, I thought I saw something moving at the opposite end of the hallway and I was like "Did I just see a naked man?". This poor guy was sleep walking butt naked while hugging himself (our hallways are freezing cold). I approached him closer and said "Hello sir" He turned his head and said hey. I was like is he still asleep? Five seconds later, I guess he realized what was going on, he said "I'm so sorry." I gave him a robe from a nearby housekeeping closet took him to the lobby to verify his identity (obviously he doesn't have ID on him). I gave him a room key and followed him back to his room to make sure he doesn't sleep on his way back or whatever.

"A guy somehow managed..."

A guy somehow managed to lock himself out of his room naked and had to come to the front desk to get another key... the front desk is separated from the room since there are five buildings each with a sertain number of rooms and he was in the one furthest from the desk... so he had to walk naked across the property... the saving grace was that it was around midnight so no one was around... also i was sitting down and the counter goes to around chest high so I just thought he didn't have a shirt on until he was walking away and I did a double take as I got a good look at his flabby rear.

"I was working morning shift..."

I was working morning shift one day and it was almost 3 so I'm getting ready to leave. The business center was right in front of the front desk, across the lobby. I'm counting money and I look up to see Big Booty Judy sexing one of the computers with a reggular going to town! I was in shock. Right then my coworker walks in and sees him too. She said "Sir! This is a family hotel! Get to your room, now!"

"You can even see the moment..."

Had one dude full on nude walking about but that was boring.

Best was a guy who called down said he was locked out of his room after sleep walking, go up, hes just in boxers, I let him in then come down to check the cameras. Dude was straight wandering the halls whilst he knocked on doors then comes back down the hallway, pees into a bin in front of the elevators and then calls down. You can even see the moment he wakes up he looks confused and lost. Was a good laugh. He got charged hazardous waste cleanup fee.

"So trashed..."

My uncle was the general manager of a resort up in Pennsylvania and he told me a story about how a little people convention came and had an event at the resort. The next day the honeymoon sweet was "vacant" again so they rent it out to this newly wed couple, they weren't in the room but 10 or 15 minutes before screaming was heard. Turns out the night before there were 3 people staying in that room and they all got pretty trashed. So trashed that one of them got naked and the other 2 threw him up onto wardrobe cabinet. He didn't wake up to the cleaning lady and so they thought the room was empty. The married couple screamed because they saw a pair of eyes peek up above the wardrobe as they were consummating the marriage. It's not every day you go on your honeymoon to find a naked guy above your wardrobe...

Other enjoyable one was this guy come to reception because he locked himself out of his room. He was completely naked. Normally people try to get my attention in some subtle way, the guy just walks down 4 flights of stairs, walks to the desk and casually says "I left my key in my room". I hand him a new key and he goes to walk back up the stairs, sees a few girls looking at him from outside. Gives them a wave, and a pose, then proceeds back to his room. The level of "I don't give a damn" this guy had still impresses me.

We don't talk about Bruno... and all of the other crazies in the family.

Maybe that is why that song struck such a chord... we can all relate to family secrets and family crazy.

Even though every generation has gotten a little more open and willing to discuss trauma, we still have a long way to go.

There is something to be said for not airing out all of the dirty laundry.

Everybody doesn't have to know private business.

People Share Which Survival Tips Could Actually Get You Killed

For the most part, survival tips have been taught to us from a young age. We know to call 911 if there's an emergency and to put pressure on a bleeding wound. Boy Scouts know to be always prepared. Hikers know to conserve water, campers know how to build a fire, and anyone who spends a great deal of time outdoors knows how to locate shelter.

However, those skills are pretty basic. If you get into real trouble, you'll need more specific survival skills in order to get yourself out of trouble.

Some people can give you survival tips that can mean the difference between life and death. Others may give you tips that seem to make sense, but will probably only lead to death. It can be a great skill to learn the difference.

That's probably the thought process that led Redditor scarredforlife164 to ask:

"What "survival tips" would probably get you killed?"

People Break Down Which Products You Should Always Buy Brand New

There are certain things you should not be skimpy about when it comes time to buy them. For example: toiletries. Why in the world would you want to use somebody else's toothbrush? A used toothbrush, we should underscore.

You'd run away screaming if you saw a used one sitting on a shelf at Goodwill, wouldn't you? Of course you would. You would immediately go to the pharmacy and pick up a brand new one, like a smart person.

People Imagine How They'd React If Someone Offered Them $50K For Their Pet

I've got a decent amount of animals - some fish, turtles, dogs, etc. - but out of all of them, Optimus Prime is definitely *my* pet.

He's kind of a jerk to everyone else, but a with me he's a the biggest bestest beefaroni boy.

That is an outright lie, this dog is awfully behaved and taught himself how to open doors so he stays letting mosquitos in the house and air conditioning all of South Florida instead of just my living room. I just have a soft spot for him.

But here's the thing - soft spot or not, if someone offered me $50k for this dog, my reaction wouldn't be horror because I just love my "shmoopies" and even can't imagine. I'm not that privileged.
