Room Inspection Checklist used by Housekeeping Supervisor

The Guest room inspection ensures that the desired results of an established cleaning system are consistently achieved by the housekeeping department. The main purpose of a room inspection is to catch any problems that may have been overlooked during the cleaning before it is found by the guest and become a dissatisfaction and complaints.

The housekeeping department should implement a well-conducted and diplomatic room inspection program, this can also motivate the room attendants or room maids as the employees/staff take pride in their work and enjoy having an opportunity to set standards for others.

Every guest room must be checked daily by the housekeeping supervisor, this will help the hotel to attain high guest satisfaction in terms of room comfort and also for safety reasons. If the floor supervisor is not been able to check the room by the end of the shift, the assistant. The executive housekeeper must do it before releasing the room for guest occupancy.

The use of a pre-printed room inspection checklist form will prove effective for the hotel management. It will establish a set procedure that will remind both the Housekeeping Supervisor / Executive and Room maids of any defects and missing amenities for the guest. 

The following attachments will offer a sample and guide to check each aspect of getting a room ready for guests.

When staying at a hotel, there are certain things that you expect to be in proper working order. That’s why many hotels have a room inspection checklist to ensure that everything is in order before a new guest arrives.

Some of the items that are typically included on a hotel room inspection checklist include checking the cleanliness of the room, ensuring that all light fixtures are functioning properly, making sure that the heating and air conditioning are working properly, and checking that the bathroom is fully stocked with amenities such as towels, soap, and shampoo.

Additionally, the hotel room inspection checklist may include checking the functionality of electronic devices such as the television and telephone, ensuring that the bed is made properly with clean sheets and pillows, and making sure that the room is free of any potential safety hazards.

By utilizing a hotel room inspection checklist, hotels can ensure that their guests have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. It’s important that hotels take the time to properly inspect each room before a new guest arrives, as this can help to prevent any potential issues or complaints from guests during their stay.
