    I have the same issue as my guests are usually 3 days maximum.  If they are staying longer I just ask 'do you want the bedding or towels changed?'.  People usually say no as they are only staying a day or 2 longer.

    I also have a comment in the information pack that 'rooms are not serviced for short stays'.  Obviously I keep an eye on the rooms but it sets an expectation.

    For shorter stays, we do not change the linen - but generally for longer stays, we change the linen and towels every 4 days.

    Changing linens between guests is a MUST and we take it very seriously. We use professional laundry services. We offer to change lines as often the guest wants. Most people will not like to change them everyday. Most guests would just ask for additional towel set. There is super small charge for it. For changing linens we do not charge anything at all. We do not give long term discounts as our area in a high demand. Personally I think linens should be changed every 5 days.

    As we are in the Tropics, we change towels daily and bed linen every three days. We do have some guests who actually request that we do not service their room, but politely tell them that they must have a cleaner come into the room every day to check that amenities are replenished and bins are emptied. On the third day the linen gets changed.

    We have a self-catering apartment when our guests arrive I show them where the extra towels and linen are kept and they then just decide themselves when they want clean sets.  More often than not they do not change as they normally stay for a max of 4 nights.

    I put fresh towels in the bathrooms everyday. If a guest stays 3 or more days, I would supply more towels and ask if you wanted a change of bed linen, nobody has taken up the offer yet- PHEW

    (I hate ironing and as a one person show, I get to do it all )

    hi
    I have short stays also for one or two days..for them if the linen still clean
    I can leave it for 3to 5days. Unless the guest asked for change ....the guest in EGYPT likes that u Change it for him on coming and don't believe that it is changed so sometimes my staff put the clean linen on the bed down and the old one is still there if he needs change they change in front of him)(always they ask for change)...or immediately if it become apparent unclean even after one day...

    I have both short and long stays. I always leave extra linen and many extra towels. The guests are free to do as they like.

    Hi, I consider 4 days is a maximum for changing both linen and towels for long stays. I usually have short stays 1 or 2 days, so it is obvious that after every guest bed linen and towels are changed and in great condition, my phylosophy is to do the cleaning as nobody had been in my apartment before. When I'm using hotel or apartment services presonally do really enjoy the feeling as if I am the first guest at the place.

    We are only very small and we don't generally have guests staying for long periods, however if guests stay for more than 3 days, we do change the linen on the 4th day, unless they indicate differently.

    This also gives me a chance to do a quick clean of the shower and rooms if needed and then its not such a big job with soap scum and food scraps when the guest departs.

    It goes without saying, but absolutely change the linen between guests.  Absolutely.  Otherwise, just tell them to let you know if they'd like fresh sheets and towels, any time.

    I really think we need to be environmentally responsible now and there is no need to change bed linen daily, or towels for that matter, unless guests specifically ask. 

    Most of our self catering stays are short term, up to 3-4 days and I will not regularly change linen unless asked to do so.  If guests are staying for more than 7 days I will change the linen at that time.

    If guest stay two days, I do only change tawel if they are on the floor. But I always dry towel. In Summer time I change bedding once if people are here 5 days to one week, its mean for every 3 night, in winter time for a week. I clean and make up room and peoples bathroom every day.

    Of course toilet paper, drinking water, fresh fruit and anything my guest need.

    Very simple, have a note asking guests to be aware of the environment. Then change linen and towels strictly every 3 or 4 days, depending on stay length.

    If they stay for 3 or 4 days, don't change.

    If they stay 5 days, change after 2 days

    6 days, after 3

    7 days after 3

    8 days after 4

    9 days after 3 and 6

    10 after 3 and 6

    11 after 3 and 4; etc etc.

    And of course if they ASK for an extra change (never yet!), of course change :)

    Hi, I have just joined the forum and am adding my two cents.  The minimum stay at my property is three days but most of my guests book for a week or two and more. I initially left extra linen and towels but found that not all my guests were changing them regularly.  I therefore personally change all linen and towels every three days, but leave an extra change of linen and towels in the property just in case they wish to change a bit more often.   Our bed linen is also pre-laundered and ironed before the beds are made. - Anthea at The Pool House, Barbados

    Anthea you are right some of my guests also don’t change their linen although I leave extra ones.

    Our bedding is changed weekly with towels changed every three days. Both are subject to request - used towels are quite often placed in the shower for a change, never had a request for a bedding change yet!

    Hi

    Linen change is an anomaly! Why is it that at home one changed sheets & towels once a week but guest get linen changed after 3 days?? We are very water conscious here in South Africa so for short stays they don't get a change and if they stay longer the weekly but that doesn't happen too often. We are not connected to municipal water and only have two bore hole. I of cause change if the linen is soiled or marked. I have had no complaints.
