Are there any security risks from offering a quest connection on my home WiFi?

I have guest mode active on my home WiFi network so that I don’t always have to give out my password. Are there any risks to doing this, other than someone downloading something inappropriate?
To my knowledge there're no additional risks, vice versa this is a more secure option. You should also be able to block what guests can do, if you want to get more granular.
You might want to check with the manufacturer of your router to see what sort of security precautions they take in guest mode. That would give you an idea of what to expect.
