I found out the hard way it is best to leave the "Clean Room" sign off the door handle because if the sign falls off and someone places it back on the door handle with the "Do Not Disturb" side showing, the room cleaning staff are not allowed by law to enter the room.
In my case, I thought I was doing the room cleaning staff a favour by leaving the "Clean Room" sign on the door handle. When I returned that evening, the card was stuck in the bottom door sweep with the "Do Not Disturb" side showing and the room in the same condition that I had left it earlier that morning.
Management was very apologetic but could not do anything about the situation as their cleaning staff leave mid-afternoon and they do not provide this service afterwards.
My closing thought is Howard Johnson's need a better process when it comes to these signs and cleaning the rooms. Either drop the clean room side of the sign or ... what about a magnetic sign which sticks to the door; or a sliding sign on the door which is controlled from the inside of the room (prevents tampering / effects from the elements); or a dual purpose programmable card-key system which can be used by the guest to gain access to the room or set the lock to keep out the cleaning staff. In any case there needs to be a better solution than it being a guest's problem.
