A guest room is a bedroom in a house, hotel, inn, bed and breakfast, or cottage for guests or visitors to relax and unwind. It serves as their home away from home so make sure that you, as the keeper of the guest room, keep it comfortable, clean, and spacious every time so when your guests are occupying the guest room, they can enjoy the accommodation leisurely and with fewer complaints. Know which amenities to put in your guest rooms and how to keep them clean by making a checklist. Read the article to find out how to make a guest room checklist.

How to Create A Guest Room Checklist
1. Take Inventory
Check your guest room to see its current state. For commercial accommodations, this is an essential thing to do regularly since they will be having guests more often. For homes, if you’re expecting some visitors, check the guest room weeks or days before your visitor arrives. For both homes and commercial accommodations, check to see if it has all the amenities that your guests might need during their stay. Take note of this as the information you will obtain will be put into your checklist.
2. Prepare the Checklist Format
You can write down the checklist on a notepad, or a sheet of paper clipped onto the clipboard, or you can use a word document software using a computer. Make some columns where you will put all the details of the things needed in the guest room and checkboxes where you can tick off everything already available in the guest room. The checklist could also include cleaning tasks to do in the guest room. If you’re in a hurry, you can download our available sample checklist templates provided above.
3. List down Everything Needed in the Guest Room
Below are some examples of things you need in your guest room. These examples will guide you on what amenities should be available in your guest room.
- Bed: This is the most important piece of furniture that a guest room must have. Without a bed, a guest room is useless and your guests can never rest comfortably without it. The bed must be clean and free from any damage with clean sheets covering it.
- Extra pillows
- Extra blankets
- Extra mattress
- Nightstand: Or sometimes called a bedside table, is also important to have in your guest room since this is where your guests put their belongings on it. This is also where you can put some furniture such as:
- Alarm clock
- Tissue stand
- Or leave a free space where guests can put their books, cell phones, glasses, dentures, jewelry, etc.
- Dresser: Or cabinets are where your guests can put the rest of their belongings. Naturally, they take out their belongings from their luggage and place them in dressers to keep them safe and make their clothes have fewer creases. Make sure your dressers or cabinets are empty and clean (free from dirt, dust, and insects) except for putting some spare linens or blankets that your guests can use.
- Mirror: Your guests need a mirror to make sure they look their best and give themselves a once-over especially if they change into outfits when they go out. Consider hanging a full-sized mirror or a mirror big enough for guests to see their reflections well. Make sure the mirror is squeaky clean and free of smudges.
- Wall hooks/hat stand: These are nice alternatives where your guests hang their accessories, bags, or jackets.
- Wastebasket: Provide at least one where guests can throw their trash to keep the room clean.
- Bathroom items: Your guests may want to clean up after a long journey so give them some toiletries such as:
- Set of towels
- Shampoo and conditioner
- Body wash
- Toothbrushes and toothpaste
- Pain reliever
- Cotton swabs
- Extra amenities: For home guest rooms, you have the option to provide these amenities but for hotels or inns, it’s essential to provide these to guests for them to truly enjoy their stay:
- Snacks and water
- Universal charger
- Reading material
- Artwork paintings or sculptures or fresh flowers to embellish the room
What’s the difference between facilities and amenities?
Facilities refer to a building, room, or even equipment to serve a particular purpose while amenities are things that provides comfort, convenience, or enjoyment to people.
How do you explain room facilities to the guest?
This practice applies to commercial accommodation. First, explain the guest room facilities to your guests. If they are contented with it, show the facilities and guide them through it. After that, give them your contact information for them to contact you when they need your service. Lastly, wish them to have a pleasant stay upon leaving the room.
Once you listed all the amenities that should be present in your guest room, tick all the amenities that are already present in the guest room, and provide the ones that are not yet present in the guest room. For commercial accommodations, make sure the checklist will be your official guide to provide complete amenities in every guest room you have. Provide your staff a copy of the checklist. Pin the checklist on a wall or door visible to everyone.
