One suggestion I forgot to add: if you have a guest bed (queen or larger) that provides spaces for two guests PLEASE provide at least a small bedside table/shelf and light on BOTH sides! I find it very inconvenient when one side does not have one and I have to throw my glasses, iPad etc on the floor....esp. if the bed is on the tall side and one almost falls out when having to fish for items to retrieve them!!

Thank you for the detailed list to make your guest feel at home. One more item could be added, dark chocolate or maybe some kind of bar.

I add couple types of extra pillows in the closet, one soft/flat and one firm/fluffier. 2 bottles of water in a tray with the towels on top of the bed. Also, just recently I added a picture frame with the WiFi info like the other reader have. And last, something that saves me a lot of time and stress, from rewashing clean sheets. I leave the clean sheets folded in the closet with couple of laundry drying sheets inside of the bedding. It will always smell freshly laundered and I just make the beds a day or two before the guest arrives. Then, when they leave I just strip the bed and after washing the bedding, it goes back right into the linen closet with new drying sheets inside of it again.
