Some Of The Weirdest Hotel Requests Ever

When you check in to a motel or hotel, most desk clerks make an effort to say something to the effect of, “If there’s anything we can do to make your visit better, let us know.” Some places don’t mean it, of course (“Hi! Do you have 100% goose down pillows here at Motel 6? You don’t? Oh, OK.”) and sometimes the requests are easy, like getting an extra set of towels.
