How Much Money Should You Tip Housekeeping?

I default to $5/night (or 5GBP if I’m staying in London, CDN$5 if in Vancouver, etc) because $1 seems like not enough, even though I’m just one person and keeping a collection of singles is just too much for me.

Since y’all had the run of the inn, I would have assumed that whoever made the reso would have factored in either a tip to coverage the mess or the inn would be charging for a cleaning service. Forty bucks doesn’t seem like enough (I’d be starting at $100 and then up, depending on the mess), but I also wouldn’t have been on the hook for it because I was guest, not the host.
