Traveling with kids we’ve stayed in nicer places than we did before we had kids: no more hostels or little dives that we drive up to in the middle of the night thinking we just need a place to sleep. We try to stay as safe, clean and easy as possible when we go away from home. So it’s pretty surprising the things we’ve found. When the guys were really little one of them found a pill on the floor of a hotel and thankfully gave it to us before he thought to put it in his mouth. And on a recent trip, they found this makeup case hiding behind the curtains: it was so big, I wondered how long it had been hiding there?
And in the same room I found this sloshy mess in a cupboard. YUCK! I’m hoping it was a coffee spill.
Thank goodness this isn’t the norm.
This experience reminded me that in any hotel I stay in, I should make sure I now check behind the curtains, and in the cupboards and give my room a once-over before I settle in.
Do you check your room when you arrive with kids? Do you have any tips for keeping little kids safe in hotel rooms?
