For some, one of the best things about staying in a hotel is not having to tidy up after a stay. But now one traveler has sparked a heated debate on the subject after revealing what he considers proper hotel etiquette.

According to the New York Post, The UK’s Darren Dowling has got people talking after sharing the extra step he takes before checking out of a hotel. He posted a picture on Facebook showing that he strips his hotel bed folding his blankets and sheets in a neat pile at the end of it. “I always try and leave a hotel room like this,” he wrote. “Is this the right or wrong thing to do?”

Well, judging by the online debate, not many people follow Darren’s lead, with the post garnering about 1,000 likes and 400 comments, with many disagreeing with his actions, although one person wrote “it’s not right or wrong…just weird.”

Many argued it was wrong because housekeeping is getting paid to clean up after guests, but Dowling responded, “‘They’re paid to clean it.’ The police are paid to stop murders but that doesn’t go well does it.”

Lots of folks did chime on the post, including hotel workers, who seemed to appreciate the effort.
