I love staying in hotels.

There is such a freedom to act in any foolish way you want.

We shouldn't. Just because we're in a hotel the rules of basic human decency still apply.

But we tend to ignore that fact.

No wonder hotel rooms are so expensive.

Redditor HarryHolmes68wanted to hear some confessions about our behvior when not at home. They asked:

"What something you do in a hotel room you’d never do at home?"

As soon as I enter a hotel room, I put the air on basically 0. I have no electric bill there and I like it freezing.

"Inspect the sheets thoroughly."

"Last time I was in a hotel, I didn’t do this and by the time I got into bed at midnight I started freaking out because thought I felt bugs crawling on me."

"Turned on the light, inspected the sheets. Nope. Pubic hairs and crumbs. Too tired to find a new hotel, I went downstairs and asked for a clean set of sheets, remade the bed, and slept like crap. Was gonna shower but the bathroom made me feel like I’d end up dirtier. I still don’t like ya Indiana."

"Use that white hand towel as a bath mat."

"I make a trail of towels from the door to the shower if I'm anywhere near a beach. I don't like tracking sand everywhere. Also the carpet is filthy."

jeeremyclarkson

"Usually there’s a towel on the side of the tub or on a towel rack, specifically meant to be laid down as a shower rug. Even at the cheap hotels. I traveled for work, and wasn’t given much for hotels. So I had to stretch them Pennies."

Plan Ahead

"Eat pizza in bed naked while watching cable tv."

"TIPS: when traveling solo, always pick a room with two beds. That way you have an eating bed and a sleeping bed. It’s the closest we’ll get to royalty, folks."

"Your tip is also valid when traveling with a sexual partner. One bed for clean activities, one bed for dirty activities."

"You cover the entire bathroom floor with towels. It's great."

"shhhhh"

"Tolerate a bunch of loud strangers galloping down the halls at 3 am."

"God forbid there's a hockey tournament. The parents let their kids set up mini sticks and nets and play in the hallways. It's really nice when you're working nights. Hockey parents can go to hell."

"It's me, the loud stranger. Had someone open their door once and do the loudest 'shhhhh' whisper I've ever heard in my life."

"I don't typically steal my own soap."

SteveMcQueef81

"I have a travel kit that has like a dozen different soaps and mini shampoos in it from hotels over the past decade. I never actually use them because every time I go somewhere they have stuff there, which I also steal."

madogvelkor

"The cost of the soaps are included in your rate. So technically when you check out, you're paying for them."

Sounds like we all love hotels. We certainly live it up.

Many people value solitude, and having time to themselves.

For others though, loneliness can be a crippling feeling.

Having no one to talk to or spend time with can get wearying after an extended amount of time.

Something many people know more than ever after the global pandemic hit in spring of 2020.
