A hotel guest made a shocking discovery regarding the cleanliness of hotel sheets.

In a post on Reddit, a user wrote that they "Heard something crinkle when I settled in for the night" and posted a picture of the note they found in their bed.

"If you're reading this, then housekeeping did not change your sheets," the warning written on paper from a Courtyard Marriott notepad said. The image has since gone viral.

While the location of the hotel is unknown, it was believed the image was posted by someone in the US - however, they have since deleted their account.
