-Not cleaned including refrigerator (one of the most important!)
-Mice (my fear wouldn't let me touch the floor unless absolutely necessary)\
-Tools (all dangerous kind) laying around
-No television (listed on site) to watch Olympics
-Women's undergarments (Baby Boy came across them and fortunately did not touch)
-Air quality (starting at the stairs and throughout the top floor)
There are more things, but I thought that these would give you an idea. Basically the home is not Airbnb ready. Even at a lower price (which it was not) there are still fundamental issues that need addressing. The reason we were able to book was the coupon I was given from our last bad experience. Do I think that the host purposefully listed it knowing these were not ok? Well, both the Hubster and I think that they quite simply do not know what they should be doing and/or standards. I received a message from the host and her response was that her husband thought it was spotless.....mind boggling!

These are some questions that come to mind when we realized that we have a 50/50 chance of booking a place that has serious issues. That....to me...is not a percentage that gives the mind confidence. We have stayed at some wonderful places also. But (for example) when we traveled for my birthday earlier this year the first place had issues and the host switched us to another.

I would really like to hear your thoughts about Airbnbs. I know others who had negative experiences, who are hosts and have a stellar rating, and those who've had no problems at all. Is it just a roll of the dice?
