I use them.

But then again, most "cheap" hotels creep me out and if I'm going to stay somewhere, I splurge for the high-end chains. So I've never once had a thought about whether or not the room was actually clean.

Hahaha I actually will use the hand soap to "disinfect" the seat before I sit my candy butt down on it . Walmart is the worst when it comes to clean bathrooms :/.

But the track bathrooms (the dorms have two bathrooms upstairs & two down) needless to say even though they are cleaned daily, thy can still get nasty ... So I bought my own disinfectant spray to sanitize the seat with .... I know I am a germ-i-phobe lol

I don't stay in hotels all too often but when I do i pull off the top cover and I also bring my own pillow (or buy a cheap one near by).

Last time I was at a hotel, it was a fancy pants expensive one so I'm sure they were clean!

Otherwise... we just don't go anywhere that requires staying at a hotel lol so I've never thought about it. I prefer using my own blanket anyway just because I think people are gross and don't want to use anything that potentially may have been used by someone else. =P

I just make sure a sheet stays between me and the blanket. I also usually bring my own blanket or sheet to put on top so the dogs don't get hair all over the bed - because I know they may not be washed for the next guest.

I also sonic everything once it's dark out. So far I haven't been disgusted yet.

I worked for a very short time as a housekeeper. And I totally know the comforters aren't often cleaned. Even the place I worked at was $$$$$. Several hundred a night. And the comforters weren't cleaned with every guest. Just the sheets/pillowcases.

But I don't care, really. I'm not usually a germaphobe in the least.

I stay in hotels quite a bit. I try not to think about it too much lol. I'm usually too cold to go without comforter so I fold the sheet (far more likely to be freshly laundered) over a bit so at least the comforter isn't directly touching me lol.

I have been known to bring my own pillowcase. Quite often. Fits easily in my carry-on and that's what my face is on all night so... nice to have my own and smells like home/my own laundry

I stay in hotels fairly often when I go out of town for dog stuff and it doesn't really squick me out. Granted, I always have the sheet folded over the top of the blanket and am sleeping with a dog or two.

Noooooo gross. Lol never. I think they are really gross. The sheets already give me the geebies. However the sheets are way to thin. Who just sleeps under a thin sheet

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

Meh it doesnt bother me. So aslong as it looks clean/well kept. I dont care. I sleep in hotels a bunch of times a year. Actually just got back from Niagara falls today and spent a week in bahamas 2 weeks ago lol.

If they dont look tattered, worn, stained, smell ect. It doesnt bother me. there is sheets in between them any way
