We’ve scoured the interwebs for all those stories you hear from friends and family of their craziest hotel experience. From the unusual, to the uncanny, here’s our favorites.
1- We’ll begin with the most recent. When Salford, England’s Amy Jones found a mysterious note in the drawer of her Edinburgh hotel room, she thought she was in the middle of a horror movie!
So I’m in a hotel in Edinburgh and I’ve just found this note in one of the drawers… pic.twitter.com/5HJOIolHWW

She followed it up with a picture of the door, captioned: ‘This is the door they are referring to. It faces my bed. Cool.’
2- Next we have a laptop camera videotaping left recording filming a hotel room cleaner rifling through a guest’s belongings. The woman does not appear to take any belongings, though the cleaner can be seen looking through the guest’s suitcase, playing with a tablet device and even trying to access the very laptop used to film the room.
3- One hotel front desk clerk took to the Internet to discuss tales from the front desk, (anonymously of course). Reddit’s loyal fan base blasted the employee with dozens of questions about life in the front desk . Here’s a little context about the employee:
One commenter (themself a ‘hotel night clerk for two years in college’) admitted to charging a cash-paying guest double price while pocketing the difference!
4- There’s a blog dedicated to crazy hotel workers and their stories! It’s called Crazy Hotel Workers. The passive-aggressive mob known as the Crazy Hotel Workers is always giving useful tips on how to be a significantly-less-annoying hotel guest. Take note of some of these rants and do your part to irritate the staff less, we’ll all probably get better service.
5- Lastly, in case you missed it, a recent Reddit post drew more than 5,500 comments when someone started an online discussion asking hotel staff to reveal their secrets. Tnooz compiled 10 of the best, their #1 favorite:
“I work in a 5-star hotel located in central Hong Kong. Yes, we have to comply with any request if the guest is considered a VIP. Not sure if this is interesting to you guys but we do have contact with locals when prostitution is needed. We simply make a phone call and girls will be delivered faster than pizza. No, I ain’t sh–ting you.”
