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.

Meh, most of the time it really doesn't bother me. The only time I have been skeeved out by a hotel bed was when DH and I stayed in this super cheap and crappy motel on our way down to the Smokie mountains to camp. I turned down the bed and there was a pube between the sheets . We promptly went out and got our camping gear to sleep in.

Depends on the hotel. I usually stay at Holiday Inn and their comforters are bright white and would see any tiny little stray hair, spot, etc so yes I feel comfortable using those (and just try to ignore the amount of bleach etc used to keep them that white lol)

I take them off the beds and would probably only use them if they looked definitely clean, or I was so cold it was that or freeze to death. Iiicccckk!
