DVC/disney timeshares do a midweek trash pickup/towel replacement but the Sheratons and Marriotts (and others, to my knowledge) are very "home-away-from-home" in terms of expecting you to take the trash out to the garbage room (usually there's a chute to drop it down or something).-"no housekeeping" means exactly that. Didn't expect any but everything I read said there's be a midweek garbage pick up. Never happened.
it's just a learning process in staying in a timeshare vs. a hotel.
your detailed review was very helpful in explaining some of those differences.
it's not THAT "home-away-from-home". housekeeping will replace TP, paper towels and garbage bags if needed.-not enough toiletpaper! Didn't really expect to have to supply that but with 6 people in the room 3 rolls just didn't do it. So add that to your list!
yeah, some people pick them up before they need them and keep them in their rooms and return them before they leave to add some flexibility.-pool towels are supplied with turning in a towel card but that window was never open past 10 so hitting the pool after the parks closed meant using shower towels
if you loved the space, don't give up on timesharing. but you are smart to avoid the sales presentations - if you start to consider buying in, be sure to spend several months over on TUG doing your homework before making a commitment.
