If I am paying a $100 cleaning fee to you I am not conducting extensive cleaning on the premises. Additionally, your condo had no wash clothes, two squares of toilet tissue left, no hand wash in the bathroom, and missing other little needs, leaving me to buy several items during the stay. And ironically, the condo also didn't have a mop, broom, paper towels/wipes or basic cleaning spray even if I decided to clean after paying $100 cleaning fee and I certainly was not buying cleaning supplies to clean your condo. I moved your lamp because your lamp in the living room did not work, which made the living room very dark in the evening hours. If i knew moving one small lamp would cause such an uproar I would have placed it back. The condo was definitely beautiful, had a nice view and very spacious but now I am questioning whether it was worth nearly $500 for only two days. To be negatively judged and commented on for three dishes, floors that looked fine when I left but no mop/wipes provided to clean anyway and the movement of a small lamp, definitely not worth it!
Since we are all in the review mood, Laura called me a few days before I was suppose to check in to ask if she could place me in a nearby hotel for my stay because someone who was staying at her place wanted to extend their stay, thereby cutting into my stay that I already paid for. If I wanted to stay in a hotel I could have definitely took my $500 for 2 days and had an option of many luxurious hotels closer to downtown DC. before even visiting airbnb. I chose airbnb primarily for the space, as do most. I appreciated the gesture, but honestly that was an unrealistic offering that was short notice.
