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 becomes a dissatisfaction and complaints.

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 to others.

Every guest room must be checked on the daily basis by 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 Asst. Executive housekeeper must do it before releasing the room for guest occupancy.

Use of a pre-printed room inspection check-list form will prove effective for the hotel management. It will establish a set procedure ensuring that will remind both 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 guest.
