Funny- I got the whole lecture about how the manager was the head of a hospital nursing area and he is as clean as they come . . . but the sheets were not clean. He fought me on that and I got a cleaning gal to let me in the linen closet.

After staying in Villa Soma for almost 2 weeks (planned to for the month), I woke up and was covered in horrible bites. Blood stained sheets, etc. I thought maybe mosquitoes (I’m allergic) and couldn’t see any bedbugs. The next night with the wind

ow shut (it was hot), I was bitten even worse. The manager Robert gave me a spray can with pesticide to spray the room myself and a vacuum that didn’t work (I fixed it). After spending hours cleaning the place/disgusting and spraying . . . I again was eaten alive. When I asked for a refund for the past few nights via text/I didn’t want to deal with his temper and to be reimbursed for the massive amounts of machine washing I had to do to make sure my clothing was ok, he immediately replied (no way he had time to talk to the owners) that he talked to owners and they “will not refund money”. I was only then offered the room across the hall and when I was inspecting it – there were live bedbugs in the mattress folds. I showed them to Robert and he just said “well, you weren’t bitten the previous 13 nights”. Which I still have no idea what that means. Clearly they had come across the hall from this unit. I moved the mattress out into the room across the hall, cleaned and sealed off all holes I could see and slept on the floor (no ability to move hotels until the next morning) and was again eaten.

The manager Robert freaked out that I had “moved things” (during his afternoon nap when he was unavailable) and told me it was “his hotel and I needed to leave immediately”. I was fine with getting out of that rat hole, but beware all, I not only heard Robert showing the unit across the hall before I moved (untreated, knowingly infested), but he was complaining to another guest about how I cost him money for the night by taking up two units.

Hello?? You have infested mattresses that need to be thrown out, you have bedbugs racing out from the rotting baseboards . . . I have ZERO doubt others have since suffered the same. It is a shame to see such a great historical building in such ruin and owned by slumlords and managed by someone who has no standards of decency.

Disgusting situation. Blood stains on sheets, dead bed bugs on the mattress. I've been woken up by bed bugs crawling on me. Within the first 24 hours I had so many bed bug bites I needed medical attention. This place should be burned to the ground, rebuilt and burned again. Hell. On. Earth.


at check in asked manager if there were any bug problems.He stated none. after paying for a week in advance and settling in, noticed blood spots on wall around bed and on the comforter. also blood spots on wall behind small dresser. then found dead adult bed bug on sink.
checked out.. got money back. manager tried to tell me that it was a cockroach after I chastised him for lying about the bug situation.


Like a maddening red tide, the massive bed bug infestation at this location here is nearly unbearable. How anyone sleeps here is beyond me
