Sign #1: Discoloration - Is your guest room telephone the oldest thing in the room? If not, does it still look like the oldest thing in the room?
Sign #2: Tangled Cords - A dirty, discolored old room phone with a tangled handset cord is bound to lead to frustrated guests, and perhaps a failed inspection, and negative social reviews.
Sign #3: Malfunctioning LED Lamps - Whether they stop lighting up completely, or stop turning off when the indicated feature is deactivated, a malfunctioning LED light in the guest room is an inconvenience to the guest as well as the hotel staff.
Sign #4: Worn Buttons - Due to repeated use and cleaning, printed numerical buttons on a room phone may begin to wear over time.
Sign #5: Faceplate Corrections or Edits - If the information is no longer correct or the faceplate has been defaced, your guest could be required to waste a trip down to the front desk with questions or complaints.
Sign #6: Stains - Phones get spilled on, sneezed on, and even colored on by guests...which can cause them to stick out as one of the most unsanitary appliances in the room.
