Globally, sustainability is a demand in all phases of human daily need. All sectors of human activities including hotel facilities and services require a sustainable approach to achieve a friendly and sustainable environment. The study evaluated the perceived factors militating against the establishment and adoption of sustainable green practices in selected hotels in Ondo- State. Structured questionnaires were used to collect data, a total of 220 were purposively administered in the twenty (20) selected hotels, where each hotel manager and ten guests were selected for the study. The data obtained were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics; the result shows that there was no policy sustaining the use and recycling process in the selected hotels (3.00) and the need for training of staff and guest for effective handling of green practices facilities (4.70) and incompetence of the hotel staff with modern green practices will affect the hotel business (4.50). The study concluded that there is absence of prescribed legislation or policy, certification for sustainable green practices, hence it is necessary for hotel employee to be trained and retrained .Furthermore, it is recommended that sustainable green practices should be integrated more into the hotel facilities and used as standard for hotel licensing this will ensure sustainable environment and conservation of our natural resources.
