I’ve stayed in countless hotel rooms and each one varies in its amenities. Over the years, I’ve relied on a handful of products that guarantee a comfortable hotel stay.
Don’t leave home without packing these five essential, affordable items.
A good night’s sleep is imperative for an enjoyable vacation or business trip. No amount of caffeinated coffee will keep you energized the next day if you miss out on sleep.
Bang! Boom! Sometimes fellow hotel guests are quite noisy. Mack’s Pillow Soft Silicone Putty Earplugs are the most effective and comfortable ones I’ve used to drown out the sound of upstairs hotel guests or hallway noise. 12 pack $12.99
The earplugs seal better than other brands I’ve tested, and they can be reused for several nights before you need to dispose them.
Sujeet Night Light
Have you woke up in the middle of the night only to panic because the hotel room was pitch dark and you didn’t know your whereabouts? The Sujeet Night Light gives off soft, cool light.
It doesn’t require much space to pack in your overnight bag and its price is affordable. $9.99
RISE & SHINE
Welcome a new day the right way feeling invigorated and ready to tackle your schedule.
Starbuck’s Via® Instant Coffee Packets
Enjoy a delicious cup of coffee without having to return to the hotel lobby by adding hotel water to Starbucks Via® Instant Coffee Packets.
Besides, when was the last time the in-room coffee machine was cleaned? Simply pour hot tap water over each packet’s grounds and stir. $5.99, 1 box (8 packets)
In-room personal comfort is guaranteed when you pack a couple of wearable items to use before or after your day.
Muk Luks Shortie Cabin Socks
A good pair of slipper socks keeps your feet warm, feeling cozy, and keeps your bare feet from touching the floor. I don’t know about you, but I have a phobia about walking on hotel floors because I suspect the carpet isn’t vacuumed between guests.
Alaska Bear Silk Sleep Mask
Have you ever laid down to sleep and noticed streaming light from under the hotel room’s door or peeking between the window curtains? An Alaska Bear Silk Sleep Mask comfortably blocks out unwanted light while fitting comfortably to your face.
Plus, they come in hand if you’re making a red eye flight to your destination and want to catch some zzzs. $9.89
Your hotel stay should be a comfortable and enjoyable as possible, and there’s no shame in packing essential items to ensure a pleasant experience. Many hotels supply essential toiletries upon request, but these five items are personalized to your needs.
