Spent 4 days in room #827 at this hotel in July 2012. We found the staff to be pleasant and the room very clean, but shortly after returning home I began to develop red rash looking welts on my leg. After doing some research on the Internet, I could come to no other conclusion but bed bugs-the bites looked exactly as in the pictures and the appearance of the sores have coincided with the symptoms of the bed bug bite.
I notified the hotel and made them aware of the problem and found the man
ager that I spoke with to be both nice and apologetic. However, I thought it bit offensive that she would suggest that she hoped we would return the following year yet offered no sort of compensation for our experience, even after admitting that they sometimes have problems with bed bugs. To me it seems that at least refunding a night would have been a decent gesture on their part.
Of course I will not be returning-too many other choices in Ocean City if we decide to visit again and the management of this property gave us no reason to give the place a second chance. This is my first encounter with bed bugs and I am not enjoying it, especially the bites that are located on the back of my upper leg where I sit, they are quite irritated now and painful. And to think it may even become more of an unpleasant experience if I unsuspectedly carried the horrid little creatures into my home. Fingers crossed.

In October 2008 stayed at hotel for MD State Teacher's Association Cconvention - Received numerous bites, saw bugs crawling and carried one home (fortunately it was only 1 others never appeared). Didn't put it together until coming home and looking up bug. We were very lucky to not bring home a bigger problem.
