I stayed in a room on the second floor of this hotel on Saturday 5/5/2012, but first noticed raised bumps on my skin on 5/11/2012. I have itchy welts all over, particularly on my arms and feet. There were several clusters in the typical 'breakfast-lunch-dinner' formation associated with bedbugs. I have not been near any mosquitoes or other biting insects. Because of the delay, I am not 100% sure that it was due to the hotel stay. However, allergic reactions to bedbug bites can take as long as a
week to set in.

My daughter and I stayed in room 211 of the Econo Lodge Downtown Omaha for three nights August 14-16, 2010. By August 20th, both of us were COVERED with bed bug bites.

Room 201 also had bedbugs. Stayed on a Saturday and noticed a few little groups of bites on Sunday. Thought nothing of it until Monday, when I realized my back was covered with around 50 bites, all in little groups/ lines. Research revealed that bed bugs fit the bill. All from one night. I notified the hotel and the Douglas county health department.

I checked into room 212 of this place on 7/16/10. Next morning I notice some bumps on my elbows. Since it was super hot there, I blew it off as maybe a heat rash. As the day progressed I noticed more of these red raised bumps & they were beginning to itch. And they weren't on the sweatiest parts of me. Biggest concentrations were on elbows & knees, but there were bumps on my hands, shoulders, butt, pretty much everywhere but my feet & head. I counted approx 100 of them. Following morning
I got in to see a nurse practioner at my clinic. To her they looked to be either sand flea bites or bed bugs. Since I hadn't been anywhere near any sand in recent days, she made the DX of bed bug bites.
Hindsite being what it is, the box spring of the bed looked suspect. It had reddish brown stains on it that were telling. I didn't know that then. It's after some research that I've come to that conclusion.
