Renee was very tentative about her checkin. I somehow sensed that I would get some trouble from this guest but having said that they were very communicative and did leave my place in good shape.
Renee got the unit at a discount price and in the most sought after neighborhood with the quality and amenities mines without discount is priced competitively. The cleaning fees are fairly meagre as well and they do not cover my full cleaning costs. So I do believe the unit is very competitively priced and infact this guest good a discounted price! Not sure what they think of Seattle as.
On the not of cleanliness I never got that feedback even after asking. I think the guest was a bit annoyed that I do not provide hotel like cleaning utilities and the particular pet peeve was about liquid soap. I even offered the guest to compensate for them buying the cleaning soap. I do want to thank for reporting cleaning issues and I will definitely follow-up with cleaning crew, as this unit was setup when I was not in town.
I do think that guests should not expect to get a hotel when they are leaving in someones guest room which is priced very competitively.
It was great hosting Chelsea wish few things went smoother. The guest asked me alter the reservation and then after checking in changed their mind. Its a busy season so I had another guest come in. There were number of requests on things like A/C which in general Seattle doesn't offer and asked the guest to open the windows and generally it works great. I also had my place smell like Marijuana after the guest left. The room was left dis-shelved, furniture, books and other things moved around. Not sure what went on but my cleaning service hasn't see the room left in this shape before.
