1st OKW owners trip in May 13....Do you need to bring towels for the main pool? I'm assuming ,since they do rent rooms via cash to non-members there are towels for use. However assuming is when I get in trouble. TIA for your knowledge!

Okay, so most of you know I am a HUGE OKW fan, but lately I've had some housekeeping issues there. This past week was no exception. We were in a 1 bedroom in building 45 (our favorite location!), and my socks got just filthy walking around the living room. I looked in the hall closet, and found the steam cleaner there. After noticing it had a brand new pad on it, I decided to do a quick cleaning of the floors. It was fast and easy, and took me about 5 minutes to do the fake wood in the living room and the tile in the bathrooms. The white pad turned very black!!! They obviously had not cleaned them in a long time. S

So here's what I did about it. I left a tip envelope when we left. On the outside it said "houskeeping tip". On the inside was a note that said..."The steam cleaner in the closet is a wonderful tool that works marvelously on the floors. Perhaps housekeeping should be using it between guests instead of just leaving it there for guests to use." I wish I could have been there when she opened it!

And, since they have her DNA and fingerprints, there's no escape! They KNOW who she is.

Hope you wrote the note in Spanish!

Good to know for the future, though!

I hope Diane also spoke to the manager about the housekeeping standards. We were at OKW just 10 days ago and had no problem in our unit (1510) but its important to let management know of any failures. That's the best way to get Disney to maintain high standards for the entire OKW Resort.

Actually, I did not speak to the manager, but I did send something to Member Satisfaction. I will say that I have had the most housekeeping issues in buildings 45 and 46. I'm not sure why that is, but the last time I DID complain to the manager about it, I was told that housekeepers work in groups and usually are assigned the same buildings each day. That might explain why I've had the most issues in that location. FYI, I've always had great housekeeping in building 15. That's another of my favs! LOVE that one when we want a GV.
