Stayed in the hotel July 4 -7, 2007. Was somewhat okay with my stay until I realized that the mysterious bumps that had been showing up on my legs, face, chest area, and wrist for the last few weeks were not mosquito bites but actually bed bug bites (red welts). After my last bump outbreak I immediately went to my physician's office so he could see what was happening to my body. He informed me that it was not mosquitos or scabies but bed bug bites--I was mortified and frantic!! I had never heard of bed bugs. I informed him that I recently stayed at a hotel while visiting relatives. After consulting with my local pest control company (they inspected and found bed bugs in my room) and researching information about the problem on the internet it became quite clear that the infestation was highly likely due to my recent hotel stay and i could have transported them into my home via luggage or clothing. Yikes!! Keep in mind I'm not a traveler and this is the only unfamiliar place including hotels, motels, or SOMEONE ELSE'S HOME that I have visited in the last two years. So there is no other strange place that I have slept other than the bed at the hotel. Well, I contacted Management immediately after my diagnosis to inquire about other complaints they may have received regarding bed bugs from other visitors. Upon speaking to the General Manager, I explained the situation and that I had recently stayed in her hotel, her initial response was, "so why did it take you a couple of weeks to contact the hotel about the problem". I explained that for the last few weeks I attributed the bumps/bites to mosquitos and it wasn't until I went to the doctor's that I was informed it was bed bug bites. Keep in mind during the brief conversation, the Manager never apologized or was sympathetic in any way. Her only concern was that it took me so long to contact her hotel and I can't be sure that the bed bugs where due to my recent hotel visit. I said, I don't expect for the hotel to admit to bed bug infestation but I was calling merely as a courtesy to Management in that they may want to have the room I stayed in checked for bed bugs. At which time, the Manager still denied bed bug infestation of the hotel and it became apparent that my concerns where of no concern to her. Simply put --STAY AT THIS HOTEL AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!! or at least do a thorough search of the room for possibly bed bugs. I sure wish I would have known about bed bugs before my visit.
