I've been a manager in High and Low class hotels all over the UK.

I have heard of and seen similar things happen first hand, this is not an unusual thing to happen! maybe not always condoms, but tampons, drugs, underwear. These are usually left behind by late night staff shananigans! all you need is a master Vingcard or as we have to have in the UK (due to an accident involving fire and melting vingcards in the reader on the door when firemen were trying to get in, guests died) a traditional key to access any & every room in the hotel, deadlocked or not! Serviced or Not, hell i've even found a bed sheet in a room, ON the bed covered, actually saturated in blood, when we investigated it turned out a KP managed to get his hands on a metal master key (this way the lock does not register) took his new girlfriend in there for a bit of after shift romance. Long story short, he damaged himself (banjo string)

I've even been called to rooms where guests/families have eneterd the room to find 2 staff memebers with massive lines of columbian marching powder racked up on a mirror, the mirror was usually on the wall, LOL

The false teeth, hearing aids, sex toys, all left in supposedley clean rooms! usually come from the guest

Hotels are rife with things like this, i'd say that hotels are extremeley lucky not to get found out more often

Need i go on?

BTW most of these were 4* - 5* hotels with great reputations

Oh My... I can't imagine what the family is going through...


I've found things in the bed at hotels before... they were all made up and supposedly clean and ready for use...

I've found food crumbs... paper, etc.

Once in the bathroom, on a shelf next to the sink, a used hypodermic needle... Yuk !!! I demanded a different room immediatley.

Not that it probably matters, but if you read the actual suit filed (provided in the link) you'll see that the $10,000 figure is mentioned several times and is qualified with the term "at least".

Yes, they're going for a whole lot more than $10k, amount to be determined, and if the facts are accurate, I hope they get a huge chunk.

I'll bet (ironic, no?) Caesar's settles for a huge sum and the terms aren't disclosed. If Caesar's can drop a mil on these people to just go away, they'll be ahead in the long run.

First thing I always do in a hotel is strip the bedspread off the bed and throw it in the corner. Those do NOT get changed with the linens.

That would be obvious... as anyone with children is shaking their head at your next statement:

Not meaning to pick on you, but just pointing out the obvious every parent knows through experience...


I am a parent, I was just pointing out that by the time a child is five they tend to ask a lot of questions. Granted my son is only about to turn 4, but he still doesn't stick things in his mouth. He hasn't done that since he stopped teething. By saying that I don't know many five year olds (and yes I should have made this obvious) I meant that I don't know many that are currently five. None of my siblings ever just stuck something in their mouth when they were five without asking what it was. My son won't even eat anything without seeing me eat some of it first. So it does sound fishy to me that a five-year-old, who by the way is probably a lot smarter than anyone gives her credit for, would just pick something up off a bed in a hotel and say "Gee I wonder what this tastes like..."

No offense taken though!


Anyway, back to the point. If for some bizarre reason this particular five-year-old actually didn't know not to just put things in her mouth and there happened to be a used condom in the room, then yes the hotel should pay for the hospital bills. Not to mention that the maid who cleaned that room should be fired. There's no excuse for leaving something like that in a hotel room for the next guest to find.

don't know about that, but i know a couple who sayed in dublin in a decent hotel. when they came back one night, someone had done numbers 2 in the shower, leaving it there.

so these places are not what they should be all the time.

I also work at a hotel and can fill a page with the nasty things left behind.

Condoms are only scratching the surface. How about doo-doo in the pillow case? Or love grease on the television screen that the maids missed? Or spent hypo needles in a dresser drawer? Gross huh?

The sad fact is it is hard to find good help. It is very difficult to expect that maids to carry the same work ethic that you do when they make barely over minimum wage. From my experience, about 1 in every 4 maids can be trusted to be decent, and most importantly: observant employees. Thats a helluva turnover, especially when you deal with the above mentioned atrocities until you can weed the losers out.

My advice: Inspect the room before you let the kids play around.

For sure. And yes, a 5yr old might think it's found a balloon. I could believe a used condom could hide in a comforter; look, a used condom can be a very sticky thing. At least someone was using one, just probably too drunk to account for it later. A case of what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas


I've found sand in bedsheets at a beach hotel. A turd in a toilet (happens more than you think) before anyone in the family could have used the bathroom. The same rag to wipe the bathroom down may have been used to clean elsewhere.

In order to boost a maid's productivity, over the years hotel maids have had to clean more rooms in the same time, even being allotted only so many minutes per room.

Drat, I'm just on my way to a hotel for three nights, and I find this thread! I'll report back.

This may sound really bad, but they should do a DNA check on the condom to ensure it isnt actually the parents who left it there............................................... Yeah, still nasty.

Lasting damage to the child? Well I am sure she thought it tasted nasty, and from the ensuing medical fiasco she went through she will probably have a long lasting life time fear of condoms, and maybe even water baloons, and of course affraid of looking under the covers for things to eat any more.

nn
Should the hotel pay? Hell yes, if it wasn't the parents rubber anyways, they should put entirely new sheets on the beds not just smooth them out! Disgusting!

Who uses a condom and does not throw it away? I do not care how drunk you are; it is disgusting to use a condom and not throw it away. I know if I found a condom in my hotel room, I would ask the front desk to call the people who stayed in the room last and tell them to clean up after their "crazy nights".

EEEuuuuuhhhh - Couldn't they have taken her to Disneyworld or something.

my kid is 5 and i cant even get her to put fruity pebbles or numerous other tasty foods in her mouth. i believe a 5 year old is smart enough to know better then to put random objects , esp a ballon (or condom ) in their mouth. if anyone is at fault its the parents for raising such a stupid kid. i could see a 2 or 3 year old doing such maybe. :w:

They're supposed to change them every time someone sleeps in them. I don't really see a maid changing the sheets and tucking the used condom back into the bed. Perhaps the parents left it in there and forgot?

That is really gross... The girl was 5. I don't know many five year olds, but I've never seen one pick something up and just stick it in their mouth without first going "Mommy, what's this?" The whole thing sounds really fishy.





thats exactly what i was thinking, i see a lot of little kids at work and everytime they see something new to them they ask what it is......then put it in their mouth lol


oh well thats still sickeing though

Maids usually make about 24 cents an hour and have about 754 beds to make everyday so I can see a slip up here or there from time to time. I wonder if the girl digested the used condom or just swished it around her mouth thinking it was chewing gum and tried to detect what flavor it was? At any rate I hope she is alright and checks out healthwise.
