Should I mention bedbugs registry in my review of a hotel?

I'm about to stay at a hotel in Pacific Grove, and looked up the bed bugs registry and got six hits for this hotel, the latest in January 2013. would it be legitimate to mention this in my upcoming review?

It would NOT be legit to mention in a review what OTHERS experienced. That's hearsay and very likely your review would either not be posted or be removed.

As others have said the "Bedbug Registry" is completely bogus.

Bedbugs can, and probably will, happen in any hotel. It's how the hotel reacts to them -- the procedures they have in place to actively and quickly seek and destroy -- that is crucial. So if a hotel had a report of bedbugs in 2011 ... it's of absolutely no consequence if they are on their toes about monitoring and eradicating.
