Nah, much more likely for someone smoking a cigar to set it off. People would always get irritated when they’d get a smoking room and we’d ask them not to smoke cigars. Candles don’t generally give off a ton of smoke.

lots of people use candles in hotel rooms such that you have wax remover on hand as standard hotel housekeeping supplies?

Just in general - wax usually releases with a degreaser, same as any other oil stain. Goo be gone is a popular one. The dye from the candle wax might stay behind, though.

I usually use the goobegone, let it do as much as it can, then hit it with Resolve carpet cleaner according to their instructions (whether carpet, upholstery, tablecloth, or laundry) if needed. Bleach usually doesn't help. Not familiar with other laundry stain removers, because Resolve is a miracle product.

Sometimes just ice is enough. Not directly on it, because the water just spreads the dye, but enough ice in a plastic bag can freeze it, and then it can just be picked off.

I have probably spent close to 1000 nights in hotel rooms and I don't recall ever using a candle.

Back during my glory days working on the road with various rock n roll bands, trashing dressing rooms and hotels rooms were a common thing for certain bands. I've seen it all. TV thown thru the window and ends up in the bottom of the swimming pool. Leftover food from the dressing room plastered on the walls and celing. Holes thru the walls, doors ripped off. The bands just end up paying, no big deal. Obviously, some hotels will never allow them back. Cant ever recall the police getting involved since the damages were always settled quickly.

I set off an alarm several years ago while smoking a joint. I was surprised because I didn't think it was that much smoke. I waved a towel near the alarm until it stopped and crossed my fingers that no one came to investigate. No such luck. Soon, there were several Chinese people at my door, and the room wreaked of skunk. I don't know what they were all saying in Chinese, but dirty looks are universal. I got plenty of those. They finally left and went back to their front office, still talking in Chinese, never a word of English. No problem. When I checked out the next morning, all the discussion in Chinese started up again, don't know what they were saying, I can imagine, and the dirty looks were there also, I understood that. I never stayed there again.

I keep getting away with damage. Never intentional, but damage. I have spilled wax on carpets, burned carpets, and knocked cabinet doors off the hinges and have never been charged. Never admitted to them, just checked out.



I stay in hotels, tear out the walls.
I have accountants pay for it all.

From what you post I thought you’d be way over 1000 nights, I think I probably am around the 1000.

I'm sure you come prepared with your own candles, red wine and bubble bath.

Been flyin' solo for so long
Nobody's singin' the harmony
Up there just me and my shadow
No bass, no guitar, no tambourine
And I found you like a melody
You were singin' in the same key as me
We had 'em dancin' in the streets
I don't wanna be a one man band
I don't wanna be a rolling stone, alone
Puttin' miles on a run-down van
Baby, we can take our own show on the road
I'll lay down the beat, you'll carry the tune
We'll get tattoos, and we'll trash hotel rooms
Baby, take my hand
I don't wanna be a one man band
No
I wanna run down your wild dreams
And I wanna chase every high with you
Count every rip in these old jeans
We'll never learn how to sing the blues
If I'm gonna be famous
Girl, I wanna be famous with you
We got our own little groove
I don't wanna be a one man band
I don't wanna be a rolling stone, alone
Puttin' miles on a run-down van
Baby, we can take our own show on the road
I'll lay down the beat, you'll carry the tune
We'll get tattoos, and we'll trash hotel rooms
Baby, take my hand
'Cause I don't wanna be a one man band
When the spotlight goes cold, and the curtains come down
The chairs are all stacked, and there's no one around
And nobody's payin', we'll still be playin'
I don't wanna be a one man band
I don't wanna be a rolling stone, alone
Puttin' miles on a run-down van
Baby, we can take our own show on the road
I'll lay down the beat, you'll carry the tune
We'll get tattoos, and we'll trash hotel rooms
Baby, take my hand
'Cause I don't wanna be a one man band
I don't wanna be a one man band
In the land of the blind, the man with one eye is the care taker.

Do you count when the girl had you handcuffed and she was dripping wax on you? Or should I not let that secret of yours out?
