A woman who claims she used to work in hotels says if you stay at a budget chain offering a free cooked breakfast then you should avoid the food at all costs.

Brandi Augustus @brandiaugustus made a TikTok video in which she listed a series of disgusting things she claimed to have come across while working in the hotel industry.

Firstly, she said management often "don’t give a s*** about that breakfast" and try to cut costs wherever possible, including with hygiene.

Brandi recalls the waffle maker where she worked was rarely clean and, even worse, old batter was used until it started to smell really foul.

"That waffle batter gets reused until it starts to smell like beer," she says.

Brandi tells people: "I don’t know how to say this without being attacked by people in the industry… if your hotel serves the hot continental breakfast, eggs, waffles stuff like that, don’t eat that s***."

Another gross thing Brandi recalled was being told by a manager to only use a single paper towel "to clean everything all night".

She explains: "He said it was environmentally friendly instead of using a rag or a sponge or even mostly paper towels to clean things like bowls, spatulas, the tables."

Brandi says if you do want to stay somewhere and eat breakfast, make sure the hotel employs a proper chef and has a hygienic kitchen.

"I’m just trying to save y’all a headache," she adds.

The video was watched more than 400,000 times since Brandi uploaded it on Thursday (November 4) and it proved to be a controversial topic in the comments.

One viewer said: "I have worked in the food industry for over 12 years. Mostly worked as a morning hotel chef or manager. The buffet eggs are a no-go."

A second person, who claimed to work for a popular hotel, commented: "Stick to the prepackaged foods, also check the room before you bring luggage in."

Not put off by the video, another person wrote: "Girl it's free bye."
