Default Hotel Comforters- Do you use them?

Many hotels don't wash the comforters on the beds in between guests. The comforters are big and bulky and difficult to wash, so hotels just leave them on the beds until they become visibly dirty.

Certain hotel chains claim to change out all of the bedding in between guests- I think Hilton is one of them.

So... does this bother you? Obviously there are many unsanitary things about hotels (glasses, door knobs, TV remotes, phones, etc), but the comforter is the biggest yuck-factor for me.

I won't use the comforters if I'm unsure of their cleanliness status. It grosses me out to lay under something that other people have slept in (or slept together on)

Poll to follow!

I'm always cold so... yes. I tend to try and use my own blanket between my body and theirs, though.

I stay in hotels a LOT for sports, and I just crawl into the bed and crash usually, too tired to worry about cleanliness. Haven't died yet.

If I'm in a swanky hotel that seems clean enough and I'm cold...probably. Usually I don't have an extra blanket with me (going on a plane). If I'm in a $40/night off the highway motel...I'm probably in my car...and I will use my own stuff.

I try not to stress out about it too much though.

I've always just slept in the hotel beds assuming the bedding is clean. Now I'm going to be forever skeeved out of hotels thanks lol. Consider the type of people that sometimes sleep in hotel beds and the dirty things people do in those beds I would prefer they clean ALL of the bedding each time a new guest will be using that room. When I was younger I would totally get a hotel room with boyfriends if I wanted to ummm have some fun since I couldn't do that with family around.

I use the blankets under the comforter, but never the top layer comforter unless I'm at a hotel that obviously cleans alllll blankets. I go so far as to bring an extra fleece blanket when I travel just in case I get cold.

There's been one time I used the hotel comforter (freeeezing cold room, thin blanket) and I folded my smaller fleece blanket over the top edge so at least my face wasn't touching it. LOL

I'm not worried about it giving me a disease or cooties, but I know it's technically gross to sleep in stranger-used bedding, but I can't bring myself to care,,,,,, soooo I leave it on.

If it's a hotel that Adam's dad owns, then yes. If it's some random one we're staying at for a car show or something, no. They're gross. We put sheets over everything and use our own blankets.
