Do you like it? Do you try to give off the "I don't like guests vibe" and hope they get the hint.. Or do you figure they're family so you're obliged to put up with them?
Me, I hate having people come and stay, hate it! There's only one thing I hate more and that is anyone (including family) expecting or asking to come and stay. Call me unwelcoming and cold, but I would NEVER ask friends or family if I could come and stay at their place... Am I alone on this thought process?

Family who ask to come stay for the weekend...

I only ever stay over as my inlaws live overseas and my brothers and sisters apart from one live in other states. Most of my friends don't live near either, so if I want to spend a good amount of time with them, they need to stay at least one night, or I would have to stay there.
Doesn't bother me at all, unless the MIL is visiting for 2 weeks or more

i love it when my family come and stay...this year we have my mum coming for 2 weeks and then a week later my sister and my niece coming to stay for a week! Cannot wait.
Then, a few months after that, I'll be going and staying with my mum for a week or so.
As long as I have notice, I have no worries at all.

Maybe I should rephrase..
"Do you put up your In Laws willingly?" or "Do you feel obliged to allow Inlaws to come and stay?"
It's the Inlaws I don't like coming to stay... I guess if it were my own family I wouldn't mind so much... Mind you, my family would never ask, we all like our own space.

Oh! I love having family stay with us. We lived on the west coast for a while and it was horrid as they could only visit once or twice a year.
We just bought an 8 bed house so we have 3 or 4 guest rooms for visitors!

Love it. We live at least 5 hours away from all family members, so they can't just drop in. But we love having our weekend guests, it is just timing them so they don't all want to come at once. There will be 5 adults and 3 kids visiting this easter weekend, arrhhhh. But we will manage, it will be chaotic and fantastic.

I'm with you OP! I don't want anyone staying at my place, and I don't like staying at other people's places either. What's wrong with a hotel??

Yes I hate it. Luckily nobody does. I have nobody from my family who needs to come and stay and DP is the baby of his family, so nobody relies on him for anything which is sometimes annoying because we get treated like idiotic children, but it's beneficial when it comes to visiting relatives because nobody looks to us to provide a bed (even though we have a spare room with a queen sized bed in it... lol).

I hate it! As soon as somebody says "oh I'm coming to Sydney." I'm thinking "please don't ask, please don't ask, please don't ask!" I feel like I constantly have to entertain and I'm always paranoid. Are they comfortable enough? Are they warm enough? Do they like my cooking?
