On Sept. 30- 2011 I checked into room 12 at National 9. It's a basic room for a basic price and the bedding looked very clean.The bedspread had a small spot of blood on it and that should have been my tip off. At 4 a.m. I got up and realized there were blood spots on the sheets and 2 bugs, too. I scooped up the bugs in one of the motel cups and tightly bagged it.
In the early morning I went to the office and gave them the cup of bugs and told them, "I've been bitten, sorry about the blood st
ains." When I asked for my money back she quickly complied. She was very very apologetic and I feel for them. It's a small place and this has to be devastating.
Over the next week I didn't have any noticable bites, but with the bugs and fresh blood I was sure. Then, 10 days later I blew out in a least a hundred horribly itchy welts. It took 4 weeks for them to subside. When I researched I found it's not unusual for it to take 2 weeks for your body to show a reaction the first time you're bitten. I'm glad I threw every thing I had in the room into the trash and never took them into my house. I know people who've spent thousands to get rid of them.
I reported it two days later but i didn't find the report so I'm doing it again.
