I stayed at this hotel in October 2010. My first night, I awoke the next morning with tons of bites all over my body. I did some research on the internet and found out they were bed bug bites. I had never had my own experience with bed bugs ever in my life, so I looked up bed bugs and scabies on the internet. I knew they were not flea bites, so I assume it had to be bed bugs or scabies. After much research, I found out they were bed bug bites, and also found out that this hotel had a proble
m with a bed bug infestation, and not only that, there was this huge article in the newspaper about the problem at this hotel, and further went on to say that they were not cooperating with the court, and were in fact, in contempt of court for not cleaning the place up. Well, we went to the office to tell them about our bites, and they had their exterminator come to the room and upon further inspection, there were bed bugs in the mattress. Since hotels don't give refunds and we paid for a week, we were stuck there, They had their exterminator spray and fumigate and assured us the bugs would be gone. The next morning, I was covered with even more bites, it was worse than the previous night, it's like the chemicals caused the bed bugs to go into a frenzy! I went to the office and demanded my money back, which they did, but what made me so upset is the clerk/owner said they had never had a problem there with bed bugs and implied that we brought the bed bugs there, when she knows good and well they have a bed bug infestation at the hotel, and they are too cheap to correctly take care of the problem, they just want to make money. And after a month later, I still have all these little scars where the bed bug bites were and will probably have to get laser surgery someday to get rid of the scars. It angers me that they knowingly let people stay there with the problem, all because they want to make money, but it's unfair because people who stay there take these bed bugs to their own house and perhaps their kids take them to their friends houses or schools, etc. and these hotel owners are helping to spread the epidemic and they don't care. They should be shut down, not allowed to operate, and held accountable for their actions.
