May 2012
I stopped here for a night on my way to my brother's wedding out at Brown Mountain Beach Resort. In the middle of the night I felt a bug on me in the bed my daughter and I were sleeping in and jumped up and turned all the lights on. I looked at the mattresses and couldn't see the bug that had been skittering on me, but I knew it was still there. In restrospect, I wish I would have thought it was a bed bug and not a roach or a spider. I didn't look at the registry before traveling, but

I certainly will now. We were in room 101. The other fun part of my story is that we must have brought a hop on bed bug back with us to LA because now we have them here, too, and it is absolutely terrible. I knew this hotel was cheap and gross on one level, but now it all adds up since it is the only place I have traveled. Boo, Red Carpet Inn. Especially when they KNEW there was a problem and that it has been ongoing for over two years now.

5/21/2010-Caldwell Co. Health Dept. CONFIRMS the following story, having found LIVE BED BUGS still in that room, hiding in the seams of the mattress and at or about the headboard of the bed. They were also found in the adjacent room of 103, and again were LIVE!!!

Re: On 2010 April 18, I checked into room 101 at Red Carpet Inn, off Wilkesboro Blvd, in Lenoir, NC, and found bugs in my bed. They looked like baby roaches, small in size and brown in color, and I tried to kill them myself. I, then,

saw more bugs in the bed in which I was to (and did) sleep in for the night. This time the bugs were even smaller, varying in color, from yellow to red. I toughed out the night and slept in that room, in that bed. The next morning on Monday, 2010 April 19, I awoke to little tiny bumps on my shoulders, forearms, and arms, which was the extent of it, I thought. As the day progressed, I began to notice the same tiny bumps on my thighs; calfs; shins of my legs; and then ankles. I reported the fact that there had been sightings of bugs in the room to the front desk clerk and was placed in a new room. I, then, noticed the same tiny bumps in private areas around my pelvis and my back, as well as the backs of both my legs, of which I promptly took pictures (all areas within decent viewing and reach), two days later and again informed the management of the hotel about there having been contact with bed bugs, which she promptly denied, "seeing as that room was bombed, and our maintenance guys didn't find any bed bugs." I described the bed bugs to her, from what I could tell her, letting her know that the bugs weren't easily seen and didn't come into contact with my skin until I was asleep. The room has since been blocked from rental/booking, pending a formal extermination, not just bombing of the room. I, however, am not satisfied with the handling of the situation, as there was no concern expressed as to my health and safety, other than the room change, even with my having showed the management both the pictures I had taken and the bites I encountered. But that said, the rest of my stay, in the new room, was rather uneventful compared to the start of it, and my solution to this problem is to not ever stay at that hotel or to use any other hotels in that chain again.
