Wake-Up Call on 03/23/2011
On the night of 3-13-11, after a late-night flight arrival, we decided to stay at the LaQuinta near the airport. I have stayed there in the past and it doesn’t seem like that bad of a place. After sleeping for six hours, I woke up and got in the shower. While in the shower I noticed something between my toes, I pulled it away from my skin and noticed what it was, a BED BUG. I reached out and put it in a cup while I finished my shower. While in the shower I found another one stuck to where my
underwear band was. After pulling it off, it fell into the drain.
When got out of the shower, the first thing I did was wake my wife to get her out of the bed. I showed her what it was, Googled a picture of a bed bug for confirmation and we immediately started packing our stuff. In the rush of getting out of the hotel, I unknowingly knocked off the lid I had placed on the cup, accidentally releasing our specimen.
I inquired at the front desk if they have ever had a problem. After denying that they have ever had a problem, I told them they should look into the room I was staying in because we had encountered them. They called maintenance to look in the room, but they wouldn’t tell me if they found anything or not. I received no apology, and for some strange reason would not tell me if maintenance had found anything or not. I understand I let the evidence go, but I am sure I had two bed bugs accompany me in the shower. I was extremely disappointed in how little the front desk cared. To sum it up, there is nothing that would get me to stay there again.
