I hate to write such an awful review for a place but I do honestly believe I have an obligation to let people know about this place. This place has bed bugs. When I arrived I was greeted by a very nice lady and I was happy at first glance. The place looked clean, the room was at the top floor with windows, a full size bed (for an individual price), hairdryer and a good bathroom.
I ventured out, came back late at night, climbed into bed and was woken up by the feeling that something was crawling on me. I turned on the light and saw a small bug on my hand. I killed it, turned off the light and tried to sleep again. Once again I felt more crawling on me. This time I looked around the bed and realized there were 3 or 4 more crawling around. I began to investigate and realized they were coming from under the bed- which was infested!
Its 3 a.m. and this point, I went downstairs and asked for another room. I was informed they had none. I asked her to come upstairs and look for herself because there was no way I could sleep there. She did, took one look and told me they would give me another room.
The next morning the man at the front desk tried to denied that they were bed bugs. When I told him that I was certain (by reports and pictures I had seen before) he said they have never had that problem and he blamed it on a backpacker that had stayed there before. He claimed the backpackers bring them with them.
They then gave me another room in another hotel they have about a block away. That room was awful as well. Small, with no windows and I couldn't sleep ALL night because I could hear every conversation and noise happening.
I did some research the next day and convinced they were in fact bed bugs. I wish I would have taken a picture. DO NOT stay in this place. I just read the other reviews and I wish I would have noticed the other reviews that also mention bed bugs years ago. Its clear this place is infested and they have not taken care of the problem. AVOID!!!
