Guests Shocked When Hotel Fulfills Bizarre Request

While booking a stay at a Texas resort, Dustin Wray impulsively entered a bizarre request in the “Comments or Special Request” box online. Wray was only joking—he did not expect the property to follow through.

But one should never underestimate the customer-service excellence of the staff at Woodlands Resort and Conference Center in The Woodlands, Texas.

Wray, who was staying at the Houston-area hotel with his girlfriend, made a ridiculously silly request for three red M&Ms (only three) plus a picture of bacon on the bed, because, in his words, “I love pictures of bacon.”

Here’s what he wrote:

Wray told that he “wrote it so that if they saw it they would laugh because it was stupid but also make it feasible if they actually wanted to fulfill it.” Mission accomplished. Wray said he completely forgot about the request afterwards.

When the couple arrived at their hotel room, they were shocked to discover three red M&M’s and, as pictured above, a framed image of greasy bacon. Once Wray remembered the special request he had submitted, he “started laughing hysterically at the beautifully framed picture of bacon.”

After his stay, Wray posted pictures of the hotel surprise on Reddit, and the story has since gone viral. You can see more pictures of the M&M’s and framed bacon here.
