Let’s start with cleanliness. Hotels often give off the air of being squeaky clean and totally sanitized. We see maids on every floor, staff is at our beck and call and we see the cleaning supplies everywhere.

And it’s not just the cleanliness. There are other things you need to be wary about while renting a room and it involves an appreciation of the fact that hotels are public places and a vulnerable target for many bad things. Also, the hotel can be guilty to- mysterious charges can be racked up and missed by many of us at check out.
