Here at New Victorian Inn & Suites, our goal is to be your home away from home. We go above and beyond to ensure that your hotel room is clean and comfortable and that you receive the best service possible. We want your stay to be enjoyable and will do everything in our power in order to make this possible. This includes making sure that you leave with everything that you came with! We know how frustrating it can be to be miles away on the road and realize that you left something behind. That’s why in this blog post, we will provide you with a few of the most common items that our guests forget to take with them so that you can double-check that you have everything when you are checking out. If you have any questions or are ready to book your room at our pet-friendly hotel in Lincoln, then don’t hesitate to contact us today!


Probably the most common item that guests forget to pack when they leave our hotel is their phone charger. It can be really easy to forget to check outlets, and in this day and age not having your charger is close to an emergency. As you probably know, they are also insanely expensive at gas stations and general stores. To be safe, place it on an item that you certainly won’t forget to pack, or simply put it in your bag after you are fully charged on the day that you are leaving.


It’s pretty surprising how often people forget to pack their glasses. They need them to see after all! Not only are prescription glasses expensive, but if you are hitting the road, you are making your drive more dangerous not only for yourself but also for other drivers —especially at nighttime! As we discussed in one of our previous blog posts, you are three times more likely to get into a car accident at night, even more so if you don’t have your glasses, so make sure to triple check that you have them with you before leaving your room.


While we will provide you with complimentary toiletries such as soap and shampoo, you probably have a specific brand or scent that you prefer to use and packed for your trip. We can’t tell you how often our staff finds toiletries left behind, which means that you’ll have to spend some of your money to get more! Make sure that you check the bathroom before you head out, so you don’t spend money that you don’t have to.


The most expensive items that we have found in rooms after guests have checked out is their jewelry. From rings to bracelets and necklaces to earrings, we’ve seen it all. We understand that you are likely going to be pretty exhausted after exploring Lincoln, so just be sure that when you are removing these items before going to bed that you place them in a safe place that you won’t forget to check on your way out.  

While we have found many other items left behind by our guests, such as clothes and even solo shoes (how do you forget a single shoe?), this list definitely comprises the most common forgotten possessions. The good news is that you can count on us to hold on to your item until you have the chance to pick it up, or we will mail it to you if you’ve already made it back home! If you would like any more information about our pet-friendly hotel in Lincoln or you are looking to reserve a room, then give us a call today!
