How much would you tip? We are staying at an Amerihost Motel. There are 2 adults and 4 kids. One night for NYE...the room cost $64 and they provided pizza and drinks, swimming until midnight and then continental breakfast in the morning before checkout. The room is pretty clean as the kids have spent the whole night in the pool and ate in the meeting room. what should we leave as a tip?

Who are you planning on tipping? Is there a program coordinator or something?

15% of 64 dollars is 9.60 that's what I usually tip. Even if you don't get the room super dirty the maids still have to clean it all because they don't know what you did and where.

Just house keeping, the other stuff comes from the owners pockets.

I would do 10-15 bucks for housekeeping even if room is barely used.


**ETA**  I never tipped unless i stayed somewhere for more than 2 days and they had to turn the room for me as in all fresh towels, fresh sheets, etc.
