Clean and tidy hotel room ready for new guests

What are the room status codes of a hotel?

Information (rules and regulations) on hotel facilities is considered true and accurate. Therefore, it is recommended that you confirm when making a reservation and once booked, you need to follow them. Most hotels use status codes to ensure that everything within the facilities runs smoothly without interruption. With a clear understanding of the hotel status codes, you will have an easy time staying in any hotel.

The room is under someone else’s name, but the bed is still unused. This means the guest has left the hotel without settling the accounts.


This means that the room assigned to a certain guest is not ready or available, but the guest has already arrived at the hotel. The guest will have to wait.
