I used to work for a large company with a large expense and budget account to stay in great hotels. Since I recently started working on myself and traveling by car more than the plane I find, I need to find a way to go everywhere and do as much as I used to do with my old boss but with a low budget. I have found that the best way to do this is to lower my previous standards and accept two-star motels and the quality of Motel 6 instead of Hilton and Marriott. You can usually lower your bill by bundle. Where I stay, I usually pay around $ 32 at the lower limit above $ 50 at the max range. Over the course of a multiple daily trip, you can save a lot of money. Cost savings is an upside but there are downsides. Compared to branded hotels, you will likely encounter poorly clean rooms, thin and spacious bathroom towels, a noisy environment, and the possibility of bed bugs and germs.
You've come up with a routine that some might say is crazy, but if you are used to staying as good as you were, it will allow you to save your money without sacrificing your comfort or health. When I always travel carry my own pillow, top cover, lightweight sleeping bag, antiseptic spray, two towels and towels, and some plastic bags. In addition to insoles or flip flops to protect your feet from dirty carpets and a pair of earplugs in case you have some neighbors fuzzy.
The first thing I do when I get to my room is take one of the motel towels and sprinkle some disinfectants on it. With antiseptic and rag, wipe the TV remote control, phone receiver and buttons, light bulb switches, lighting switches, and door knobs. After that, remove the bed cover, the blanket, the pillow and the top covers from the bed and put it in the corner. She put the top sheet on the bed, then the sleeping bag and pillow. Finally, I turned my attention to the bathroom. The towels and laundry fabrics that they provide are usually thin and gentle for showering while used to clean them.
I disinfect tap handles in the tub and shower / bath, and wipe the sink or shower and toilet. Place the dirty cleaning towels in the corner and hang the towels on top of my face. I know it all sounds like a lot of work, but in reality it only takes 15 minutes and deserves peace of mind. Make sure to notify the front desk that you do not want a maid service during your stay and suspend the inconvenience of checking out the next day so that the maid does not try to undo your hard work, when you are ready to leave put towels and top sheet in a plastic bag and fasten it safely to be washed well when returning home .
