With Bacon And M&Ms, Resort Makes Couple Feel At Home

When making a hotel reservation online, there’s a box where you can type in any special requests you have for your stay. Do you need down-free pillows? A cot, if the hotel doesn’t charge extra for them? You could ask there. One vacationing Redditor, though, took the opportunity to see whether anyone reads that box at all. 

Three red M&Ms on the counter. Not packages, just single M&Ms. One for me, one for my girlfriend, and one to split if we get hungry late at night. And a picture of bacon set on the bed. I love pictures of bacon.

Who doesn’t? By the time the couple checked in, the Redditor claims that he had forgotten about the special requests. No hotel would be so silly as to actually listen to his demands, right?


“I was quite confused when I walked in and saw three single red M&Ms,” he writes.


Amaazing. Now, that’s how you make your guests feel at home. Only better than home, because my home doesn’t have M&Ms or framed photos of bacon in it.


The bacon picture brought it all home, though. “My girlfriend started laughing at the picture on the bed. At that point it clicked and I started laughing hysterically at the beautifully framed picture of bacon.”

This hotel pays attention to your special requests. [Reddit]
