Thanks. We recently stayed at Yacht Club and that's what they had. I thought they were a lot more comfortable. They weren't stiff like the regular bedspreads. And if the duvet is washed each time, that would be an added bonus!

TV show - my name is earl

On a TV show called 'My name is Earl", there was a quote I liked.

■Randy Hickey: Catalina, how often do you clean the bedspreads?
■Catalina(Maid): I don't know; I've only worked here for a year.

So they change the covers, sheets & pillowcases, then they toss a dirty throw pillow on top of everything!
This happened to us at OKW last month. I had taken the bedspread off and folded it up. The day we had full cleaning, they left the bedspread off, but put all the throw pillows on top of the clean sheets. I'm not a germaphobe so it didn't bother me, but it seemed like a really odd thing to do.

Now I'll have to start a "does anyone wash the throw pillows" thread. Then a "does anyone wash the sofa cushions" thread.

Just kidding of course! I honestly don't remember throw pillows on the beds at BCV but if they were there, we probably took them off right away.

Since they are sheets they wrinkle and even a cursory look should tell you if they've been washed. The plank like beadspreads wouldn't show a wrinkle.

tripletsmama - just gotta ask. Do you use the pillows provided? While I don't love that bedspreads aren't cleaned often the pillows are a whole other can of germs and other things. If you ever catch a show about what is found on hotel/motel items - well - pillows don't rank very high and that's where your head goes. It even made me go out and replace the pillows at our home!

But what about the mattress? The pillows are cased in large pillow cases (or at least the pillows are pretty tiny (used to king sized pillows, not standard pillows).

I was just adding one thing at a time.

I've been in hotels with this design, I assume they wash the down comforter with each guest? They do always seem fresh but I've wondered about that.

I'd bet not. Kind of like the pillows. The "down" comforter is encased in a cover.
