A FLIGHT attendant has revealed how to tell if your hotel room has really been cleaned – and it starts with the bed.
If they look creased, there is a good chance that your room may have been skipped over.
The anonymous flight attendant, who has worked as a member of the cabin crew for 19 years, explained that if they don't have sharp creases it means they haven't been recently folded.
They told Business Insider: "Don't sleep on hotel sheets that don't have creases from being folded.
"Someone slept on them already."
Dan, who works in a motel in Mariposa, close to Yosemite National Park said he had done this before while cleaning rooms.
He previously told Sun Online Travel: “I could have 20 beds to change in a day – it’s back-breaking work.
"So, if I see a bed that’s been used but it’s not been messed completely, I’ll just pull the sheets really tight and hope no one notices. It’s worked for me so far.”
Harrison Jacobs, who once spent 300 nights at hotels and Airbnbs in one year, revealed how the kettle gives away the state of a hotel too.
He said: "When I get to a new hotel room, I pop open the top to the appliance. If I see mould or rust, which happens often, I ask for a new room or shorten my stay to one night and move on to a different place."
"Because coffeemakers and electric kettles constantly have water or moisture in them, they can be a haven for bacteria, rust, and mould.
"As such a small item and a tedious one to clean, I've found that coffeemakers and electric kettles are frequently overlooked by less diligent hotels."

The remote control is another hot spot for bacteria as it's handled by lots of people.
Hotel cleaning staff have even said you are a bad guest if you don't clean up when you leave.
