Parents stayed two nights mis october Mom has about 20 bites. Contacted the hotel and talked with mgmt who confirmed that there was bugs on site. Saw this site and just wanted to say they are still there.


My daughter's 8th grade class stayed here on 9/23/13. They arrived very late and were probably just happy to have a bed to sleep in! Many kids woke with bites and rashes the next day! The Science teacher was shown one of the bugs and confirmed it was a bed bug!!

I filed a complaint with Choice Hotels, but since their hotels are independently owned, they referred it onto the GM. I have received NO RESPONSE!!

I called the Health Dept in PA and was told they have no jurisdiction to investi

gate bed big complaints since the bugs don't spread disease.

It was not fun bagging and washing and drying EVERYTHING on hot to kill any bugs that may have hitchhiked home with her. It completely freaked me out!

How does this disgusting hotel stay in business?!??

09/23 Room 121 full of bedbugs brought a cup of them to the front desk and they were not surprised. I left and when checking out the desk got mad at me for mentioning bedbugs because they had people in line to check in who left. What a sh*thole.


Late in reporting this - stayed there April 24 thru 28, 2013 in room 138. Didn't see anything till morning I was leaving. Got bit once and was able to 'save' the second bug I saw and took it to front desk when checking out. Clerk acted like he had no clue what it was - wrong move!! Called corporate headquarters and they also acted as though they never knew anything, but were very polite in doing so! Week or so later received email from manager assuring me they had taken care of problem, etc. etc

. She also offered me a free nights stay. These bedbugs can show up instantly but the motel response is totally not acceptable. Saw other signs of 'not caring' while there and wonder if management is not up to par. Until this year never saw signs like that. Obviously will not stay there again. Sad, it was a good motel in the past.

Stayed with soccer group. Room 121 infested with bedbugs.


As with other rooms, there were bed bugs. I looked them up on google and took a photo with my Canon Macro lens and my photos matched the images on Google.


August 2, 2013 Started to stay here, went and pulled the sheets down and found out, WE WERE NOT ALONE in the bed. There were BED BUGS!!!! Went down stairs (10:00PM) and told the front desk. She gave us a hard time getting our money back. We wanted to stay somewhere else as it was a four hour drive home by knew we couldn't just bring the beds somewhere else and drove home. Needless to say, out weekend away turned into a day trip.

We saw bugs crawling on the bed on two different occasions. Thought first one was a tick, but when saw second one next morning, knew was a bed bug. They were crafty to encase the mattress so you couldn't look for waste/blood from the bugs. The next morning we had the telltale blood stains on sheets where they had bitten us. Date of our stay was 7- 11-13. We told them we were checking out early because we saw bugs and they only said they would check it out. We spent hours washing our clothes,

throwing away our suitcases and vacuuming our car so as not to take them with us onto our next hotel.

I stayed at this facility, with my two sisters, on June 7 and 8, 2013. I have spent this complete week since returning home trying to recover from approximately 50 bites, which have been determined to be from bed bugs. I've required medication to control the swelling, welts and itching. I've had my home inspected to make sure I didn't bring them home with me. To date we have found nothing here, but I don't consider this effort complete. This hotel needs to be completely treated or CLOSED. C

an you imagine my disgust when I find out about this website and the other negative reports.......one for 6-6-13; just ONE day before I was there. I have called the hotel. Someone needs to do something about this problem. Makes me wonder how many people DIDN'T report it!!

I was bitten by bedbugs in room 119 at the end of April 2013.


We stayed here overnight on Thursday April 18 as part of a school group. This hotel is severely infested with bed bugs. I personally got bit there as well as several other people. The bed bugs were hidden under the bed skirt and stuck to the covering. The Manager of the hotel was very unprofessional and denied that there were ever bedbugs in the hotel. She came to the room to check our story, saw multiple bed bugs and stains and she even killed one with her finger. Even when they switched our ro

oms, they kept renting out the infested rooms we left to unsuspecting customers. This wasn't just one bed bug, there were at least 8 rooms that we know of that were crawling with them. This place needs to be shut down, cleaned thoroughly and better management needs to be hired.

Our school group stayed at the Comfort Inn In Gettysburg, PA on April 19, 2013. Nearly half of our group, who occupied 26 rooms, either found bedbugs in their rooms or were bitten. The staff didn't seem at all concerned and were actually quite rude. They told our principal to clean the dead bug off the mattress himself. The first few people who discovered the bugs had their rooms changed, but then the staff said there was nothing they could do because there were too many of us. They continued

to accept other guests, even placing new guests into the first room where the bugs were found. In that case the mattress and bed skirts were very infested and stained by the bugs. Obviously, the bedbugs had not just arrived.

When we first examined the beds in the room where I and my son slept, we did not find any evidence of bedbugs, but during the night I was bitten at least 3 or 4 times. I saw a bug and tried to kill it, but by the time I got up and turned on another light, I could not find the bug.

Most of our group had a sleepless night feeling itchy and constantly checking for bugs and bites. A few of the children had fairly severe welts that lasted throughout the next day at least.

The staff reacted with an appalling lack of professionalism and absolutely no sense of proper customer service. They knowingly proceeded with business as usual as if the problem didn't even exist. They treated us like we were the problem.

I was just about to fall asleep and saw something run across my hand. After further examination we found 5 bed bugs and blood spots on the sheets. The hotel manager refunded us and we left but she made it seem like it wasn't a big deal.


We found one live adult on a bed pillow. Lifted a corner of the mattress and found babies and multed body parts.
The hotel didnt charge us, but also didnt seem too concerned with the report.
