This was and still a nightmare for me. I take a hot shower three to four time a day, if I feel anything crawling on me I run to the bathroom and take a shower, I clean my bed and change my bedding every day because of this. I have grandkids and I refused to see them until I feel safe for them to be around me. I would never wish this kind of nightmare on any one.

October 1, 2011. Checked in around 3:00 PM. Wife took a nap, got up complaining of some kind of bite. Assumed, it was a misquito. That night she woke up at 1:AM with numerious bites. She smashed one full of blood. We started looking and found several full size bed bugs. We captured two and checked out and went to another hotel. Manager called me next day and apologized.
Said he would have a pest company check it the next day to see if they were bedbugs. I told him we know what they wer

e and don't B.S. me. My wife had a elergic reaction, we had to cut our vacation short and rush back to our home and had to be treated by doctor for the reaction. First time for us. We normally travel in an RV. From now on we will go back to the RV or do a very detailed inspection when we check in if we do not use the RV. We have so far spent two days disinfecting everything, including the car. Has cost us around $200.00 out of pocket so far.

On 12/5/10, we checked in. We always check for bedbugs. Bedbugs were found in the bed between the mattress and box springs. The staff was very nice and offered to upgrade us to a suite. We declined, and they were nice about not charging us anything.

August 21, 2010

Both beds in our room had bedbugs crawling on them. One bed was worse than the other one. There was black stuff all across the top of the dust ruffle behind the mattress. It was disgusting! They moved us to another room.
