Mistake #! Checked in. 8/6/2019
Went to room and checked the matress which did not have stains on it. Noticed some brown spots on wall under a board holding a mirror above the head of bead but dismissed it as spattered paint. Mistake #2


Had breakfast there and though the food seemed ok there were dusty cob webs hanging from picture frame and from ceiling above waffle maker. The type that collects in kitchens where there is grease used in cooking. General uncleanliness, red flag!

Mistake #3

Touring all the next day, did not notice bites on my body.
Returned to the hotel at 8 pm and checked matress again, moved matress off the box spring to see box spring, saw tiny red bug that smeared red when I smashed it.

Investigated the area under mirror frame and where spots were, saw 2 adult bugs.
Lifted a picture frame, saw a baby bug move under it.

Caught the adult in a cup, showed front desk. They admitted yes a bed bug. Offered us another room when we asked for refund. We declined.

Next morning went back to talk to day manager. Woman at desk said he was away and so she could not refund us. We would not accept that, she called the manager he said he would do it when he retured four days later.

(Four days later there is still a charge on the Visa for one night.
LITTLE EFFORT on their part to make it right.)

OF NOTE: this was after 10:00 am and there was no exterminator there. We went back to the room to show them the area. No effort had yet been made to clean the room.

LITTLE EFFORT on their part to halt the infestation.

Started finding bites on my body over the next 3 days about 30
so far.

Woke up with "breakfast lunch and dinner" bites. Saw little "ink stain blot" on shower curtain. Box spring had a bedbug cover.
