The place I worked at was upscale. It depends on the management though. A place can appear upscale yet use cost cutting moves wherever they can to maintain that image. If the bedspreads/blankets appeared visibly soiled or smelled strongly, or if a guest complained, they were changed.
The place in Hawaii with the pubic hair was a very upscale resort suite. The new suite we received after was very clean (but I still changed the sheets).
The place with the dead hooker was a low to mid range accommodation.
Oh and very important! If you're bringing your own linens, I recommend leaving pillows at home, just bring pillowcases/sheets. It's a good idea to keep clean clothes ziplocked in a spacesaver bag. And before you bring any of your clothing that got out of that bag home, take it and your sheets, etc to a laundromat. Wash on hot and dry on high for minimum of 5 to 10 minutes to kill any bedbugs you may have picked up.
