While I hope to believe we have a very clean bathroom, I just would ask users to check that Linda was the first negative review I have left on any site ever. She requested to stay at 11 p.m. the same day and we originally accepted because she stated she was a retired police officer and accepted because of that. Her payment didn’t go through and at 12:30am we finally accepted to find she had a dog she’d never mentioned and showed up but did her a favor due to a story about her son on drugs and she wanted to go to bed. After listening to her ramble for two hours in the wee hours of the night we locked all our doors and went to bed as she said she had to go out to do some things a little scared of her. I woke up in the morning to find she had raided our fridge to eat our food and hadn’t let her dog out so it pooped all over our apartment (including the newly cleaned bathroom she claimed was unsanitary). Without mentioning that in the morning after I’d cleaned it up she said it was hard to find a place to park. I told her it’s easy at 8p.m. (Our check-in time) and she found a parking spot immediately at 12:30a.m. when she initially showed up. But of course it’s hard to find a spot in the city at 5a.m. when she returned.
I just find it ridiculous that someone can have a same day request that we accept as gracious hosts as someone who served or claimed to serve on the force, and then proceeded to make us uncomfortable, eat our food, have her unmentioned pet poop and pee all over our apartment leave a review about our parking ability at 5a.m. and that our bathroom was “unsanitary” after her dog pooped in it. We were actually scared of a bad review so were trying to do everything we could to get her out of our house in the morning while still being as polite as possible when she took hours to do so while her dog used our apartment as a tree.
