Motel Etiquette: How to Be a Good Guest and a Good Neighbour
When you're staying away from home, you want to be respectful of your host, whether you are visiting friends and family or staying at a motel. If you're staying at a motel in Grande Prairie, you can ensure a much more enjoyable experience by being a good guest and a good neighbour to other motel guests. The Lodge Motor Inn operates motels in Grande Prairie and Dawson Creek. Here is our simple guide to proper motel etiquette when visiting one of our locations or any other motel along your travels.
- Try to keep your noise levels down
There's no need to whisper or tiptoe while staying at a motel. You should feel free to relax and live as you normally would, with just some extra care given to keeping the volume of the TV, of your music, and of your voice at a reasonable level. Keep this in mind when you are in any common areas as well, such as in the laundry facilities or business centre.
- Be mindful of how you treat the room
While staying in your motel room, think about how you would want someone to treat your home and act accordingly. For example, leave dirty shoes by the door so as to not trek in any debris. You should also treat the furniture and items in the room with care and make sure you leave everything in the same condition you found it in.
- Don't take any items from the room
The items in the room belong to the motel and should be left where you found them. This includes items such as towels, dishes, coffee pots, decor, and other accessories. However, you can feel free to take any consumables that you'd like to finish using, such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, and lotion.
- Be considerate of housekeeping
You don't have to keep your room pristine during your stay, but housekeeping will appreciate it if you keep clutter to a minimum. This will make their job easier when they come in to tidy and make the beds. Before you check out, make sure you put any garbage in the garbage bin and place all of your dirty towels in one spot on the bathroom floor. If you have a room with a kitchenette, then cleaning your dishes is also greatly appreciated.
