Nope. You can get bad housekeeping at any resort. POR is no more given to it than any other resort.

It depends on the Mousekeeper, and as everyone will tell you, every resort from deluxe down to value, runs the risk of having a less-than-ethusiastic Mousekeeper clean their room.

When that happens, should we complain?

We always have had good housekeeping, I do tip and leave thank you for your hard work note, though not sure if this helps.

You can call Housekeeping, explain your issue and request that they fix the problem. No need to complain until you give them a chance to fix the problem.

We did not stay there, but when we spent a couple of hours there while the kids took a Pirate Cruise. It was the dirtiest resort of all the ones we visited on our trip. The bathrooms were filthy and the food court too. My husband and I went into the arcade and it grossed me out and we left. The grounds were picked up but the insides were unimpressive. Maybe they are having issues at that resort, but I do agree all places have their good/bad times and all places are vulnerable to being dirty at one time or another. I would say something.

How about you change that question to: IF that happens, should we complain? Then, the following advice would be appropriate.

We often stay at POR and always found it to be extremely clean, especially the restrooms. If you feel your room is not up to par, let them know. I'm sure they'll send someone over right away!

Stayed in AB room Sept 2012....great housekeeping every day. I really think it's hit and miss at every resort. Would never base decision to stay at a resort on the good or bad reports of mousekeeping .

If you encounter a problem, pick up phone and call housekeeping and they will most likely fix it.

Agree withh PPs ... can get great or bad mousekeeping anywhere .... but generally people have positive experiences.

On our 11 day stay May 2013, we had awesome mousekeeping at POR mansions.

I dont know about POR, but I have found there are differences between resorts when it comes to housekeeping. Anyway, best thing to do is call right away and have it remedied.

We have changed rooms because of a "clean issue" (more then dust or crumbs) at 2 resorts so far, POP and GF. We went and talked directly with the manager, not mousekeeping or a CM to address the issue. With one of our conversations with the manager, he mentioned that mousekeepers are always being assigned to different resorts on a weekly basis.

Also just returned from POR and had no issues in either our room or public spaces. Went to arcade numerous times, public restrooms, food court, etc - all very clean.
