I know that my pillows were changed when I left to go out.

One day, the man housekeeper came to our room for room service/housekeeping. And, I gave him an extra pillow that I no longer really needed. And he told me that they normally stuff two pillows in a pillow case. And he then told me, if I wanted the extra pillow taken away, then he would take it. But as their job they are required to put two pillows into the pillow cases. So, I was like, since you have to do your job correctly then I told him that I will keep the pillow. And he insisted that if I wanted it gone, then he will take it away. So, he did. Well, the next morning when I was making the beds up, I noticed that two pillows were in my pillow case. They were two flat pillows. I left out that morning to go to an appointment. But when I came back the pillows were changed up. Now, I know how I left the bed. Why would someone wait until I am gone from the room to replace two pillows? Housekeeping had already came to my room that morning, and once they come to your room, they will not come back. Not unless you tell them to. Which I didn't. So, why did that person slip into my room when I am gone, just to put two pillows in the pillow case? The man said that it was okay for him to take it with him if I didn't want two pillows in one pillow case. I have a feeling it was that same man whom I gave my pillow to. When I left he came into my room and put two different pillows into the same pillow case. If he could not take them away from the get go, why didn't he just be honest with me. He could have told me something. So, now, I noticed since then, that he is avoiding coming to my room for room service, because he knows that he is guilty of replacing two pillows into the pillow cases. A week ago, when I was leaving to take my son to school, I noticed that he was standing by the laundry room, looking hard at me. I spoke to him because I didn't thought about how he changed up the pillows on the bed. I am guessing that he was wondering if I noticed that he changed up the pillows, which I did. I just didn't show it. Last week the lady came to clean my room, and she tooked the two pillows out of the pillowcase, and gave me one big sturdy pillow. I wonder if these two are behind this mischief. I say this because they both have the same rules and they stay in each others faces. It makes me wonder what other sneaky things that they have plotted up when I am gone or not in earshot. My thing is this, why wait until I leave to replace two pillows into the pillow case? If it was that big of an issue, I would have kept the old one that I had from the start. Was the housekeeper allowed to come into the room to replace the pillows like that. I know that they have an key to the room. But room service had already been to my room that morning. So, why come back again when I am gone?

they might have been told by the head of housekeeping to go back in and change them out.they do that sometimes when they have new.or they're doing the "deep cleaning" of the rooms and they wash everything. he could have said something to you about it if either were the case. i have never heard of putting two in one case before though.

Yes, I was thinking that to. But it is strange that all of a sudden something is changed when I am gone.. When I am in the room they don't pull crap like that. Yes, if he came back into my room when I was gone to change it, he could have least be a man about it, and tell me. I never knew of a motel putting two pillows in one pillow case either. I don't even do this at home.

Lol! Yes, the pillows are very flat. They don't look brand new. Why don't management just invest in buying more sturdy pillows. Having two pillows to one pillow case is crooked looking. I want only one, that I is why I gave it back to the man/housekeeper. And his slide behind came behind my back and replaced it when I was out of sight.

Often times head housekeeper checks on the work. If something is found amiss, they tell the housekeeper to correct it or perhaps correct it themselves. Never tell the housekeeper, talk to the front desk or directly to the head housekeeper.

Hi, irishidid! Yes, I won't tell the housekeeper. It is better for management to know about this.

I'm not talking about complaining, I mean tell the front desk how you would like things done in your room. It's okay to make those kind of requests and it's noted for your room. As far as the housekeeper goes-some are clueless or in such a hurry they overlook things. It is simple enough to forget to put something in a room or forget that someone has made a request. The housekeeper may not have had any say in the matter, that's why I said to talk to the front desk. You don't have to talk to the manager until there is a serious problem.

That is a pretty confusing question. I guess you need to ask the management or something just to make sure that they do not easily have access to your room. That is invading your privacy still without your consent. I guess you better raise that up in their management. One more thing, did you loose any valuables or noticed anything strange other than the changing of pillows. I guess if this goes on, you need to find a new place to stay.

Hi, deshie! Sorry it is confusing. Someone came in and replaced two pillows and they put them in a pillow case. I know it was the man or someone he put up to doing it. Housekeeping had already been to my room that morning,so, why do they need to come back again? They waited until I was good and gone to sneak into my room. And then they did their dirt. They must have thought that I was too stupid to notice. But I did. I didn't see anything that was out of order, although I was looking. Actually, we are planning on moving out of here this week. And I will be glad when I am gone. I have just about had it with these trifling people!

You'd better be really careful about leaving valuable things in your room. I think you should report their behavior to the manager of the hotel where you are staying. They very well could be plotting to steal things from you since you are staying in an extended length of time. The things they are doing sound very suspicious to me.
