Do you feel ok walking around a hotel's common areas without shoes?

When we are at a hotel DH always puts his shoes on any time he is out of the room, even if it's just to get ice or something. DS and I never do that, in fact we'll even sit in the lobby in our bare feet. Where do you fit in on this question?

  • I always wear shoes everywhere. In the room, I will wear my socks at bedtime, so of course, I walk around the room in them to go to the bathroom. I don't even like being barefoot around my house . . . I have dogs and I HATE the feeling of dog hair or anything being stuck to my feet. I'm a ilttle OCD.

  • I always wear shoes too, and if its at a hotel and we're in the room i'll still put slippers on, because I do get disgusted with the rug, who know's how many nasty people have been on there eww. Even in the showers of hotels I'll wear slippers because I get grossed out right away.

  • I either wear shoes or slippers. You never know what is lurking on the floors and in the carpet. When I was little a boy named Jacob in my class caught a tapeworm from walking barefoot in McDonalds. He "brought" it to show and tell and it was nasty. You could see it formed under the skin in his foot. AAAGGGHH! Plus I am a complete germophobe.
