You don't pay hotels a cleaning fee.

Tried to use them once and search results were wildly different than actual costs with severe cancellation penalty. I am fine with a hotel of hospitality professionals.

I have no problem with paying a cleaning fee. Anything is better than staying in a hotel. I usually clean the apartment the night before I leave. I don't sleep the night before a flight as I have to be up early. It gives me something to do. And it's the polite thing to do if you have been staying in someone's property.

"But that’s set to change in December when Airbnb plans to roll out a toggle so travelers can opt for search results to display total price, including all fees . Users who don’t toggle the total price display will still see nightly rates only."

Why bother with the "toggle"? The user can care less about anything other than the total price.

Looking at the behavior of Japanese Football supporters in the current World Cup Series, perhaps AirBnB should not charge Japanese Residents cleaning fees - as they will more then likely clean the place themselves before they leave.
