Things took a horrible turn when she allegedly discovered two stains on the bedsheet. She had been lying on the bedsheet for a few hours. when she deciding to go under the bedsheet after feeling cold.
However, she smelled poop odor, and to her shock, she discovered poop stains on the bedsheet. She later discovered another small light brown mark on a towel in the hotel room.
Declined hotel's offer to refund
Ong took a shower immediately after discovering the poop stains, left the hotel and took another bath again when she got home.
In response to her complaints, the hotel manager offered her a refund and a free one-night stay at the hotel. However, she declined the offer.
In a statement sent to The New Paper, the hotel is investigating the incident and is unable to determine the cause of the incident. The hotel also assures that further action will be taken if warranted.
The duty manager and housekeeper had attended to Ong's complaint, which was around 6.30pm.
"We immediately took steps to change the sheets and towel in the room. We also launched an investigation (which) revealed that our room attendant entered the room with a clean set of linen and left the room with the used set of linen at around 3.10pm," the statement said.
Netizens were quick to respond to Ong's TikTok video, with some questioning if she had planted the stains on the bedsheet herself.
"Maybe it was yours," commented user gohvanla.
