I should have know better the moment I walked into this CRAPHOLE of a hotel. The pictures are quite deceiving if you google it, with a well-lit lobby and other "halfway decent" areas of this disgusting hotel. I Checked in on Sunday September 22nd-23rd in room 155. As soon as I entered my room, I could immediately smell the stale smell of cigarettes, and old moldy carpet. Old run down carpets that clearly need to be replaced, not to mention they had the nerve to decorate the room with a nasty old
sofa, like something you would see at a thrift store. I've had bed bugs before at our previous apt., so trust me I know how big of a nightmare it can be, and all it takes is just one little sucker. So... I began pulling back the mattress, sheets and pillows and thoroughly inspected the area. As for my luggage and garment bag... ummm, yeah, as soon as I opened the door when I first entered the room, I figured it was best to just leave all of my personal belongings in my SUV...No way I was chancing ANY kind of critter hitching a ride home with me! I only brought in a couple of items I needed most and kept them on top of the desk and in the bathroom on the counter. Later that evening, It wasn't long before I was awoke from the crappy linens that were super scratchy and uncomfy. I started to itch, and wonder, and then the paranoia sets in, turned all the lights on in the room and checked out the blotchy spots on my skin, however no bumps or welts. I figured why worry all night, and head to bed. 9 am the next morning I woke up with an itch that wouldn't cease, so I lifted my pj pant leg on my right leg, and low and behold....just as I suspected from the beginning, a bed bug bite on my shin. After I took a shower, I noticed a few other bites, but they were smaller. I gathered my few belongings (toiletries sweater and heels), quickly bagged them up (using ice bucket bag, garbage and plastic laundry bags) and checked out. I didn't bother with complaining to the manager at the front desk, because from the looks of it, they've gotten plenty of BB complaints I'm sure that they just disregard. Arriving home, I left all my luggage outside on our balcony for a few days (even though I keep all my bags in the car the entire stay), still not taking any chances. 3 days later... the itching continues with delayed reactions a few more small bites that are starting to unveil. Why I stayed here overnight is beyond me honestly. A friend was kind enough to reserve a room here for me, I didn't want to be rude and leave, plus I was super nauseated from driving on the road all day, and needed to rest. As for returning to this crummy place, NEVER AGAIN. Steer clear of this dreadful place and stay somewhere else, even it's another 6 miles to the next closest hotel!
