It was 3am, we just wanted a place to stop for about 5 hours and catch a nap, and we were going to be on our way... HOWEVER, upon arriving at this location, we were told by the clerk that there was only one room left, and it was a more expensive room than what I'm used to at Motel 6. She also had a gripe about the number of dogs I had with me, which I now know is up to the individual motel 6 to decide how many they allow, but I'd never EVER had problems with them before at other motel 6 locations.
While I went outside to talk to my SO and see if he still wanted to stay, another guy walked in. When I returned inside, the clerk said she had gotten rid of the last room, and then quickly recanted her statement, saying that she magically had another room, but it "wasn't the best, and she wasn't even sure the TV worked." I said I didn't really care, and that we were really only there to take a nap, then get going.
We arrived in our room, and one of our dogs got all slinky and weird. That maybe should have been our first clue, but I shrugged it off, despite my SO and the dog acting oddly. I just wanted a damn nap.
I fed the dogs, while my SO crawled into bed, and no sooner had I set the food dishes down, than he said, "honey, come look at this.. I think we're leaving." SURE ENOUGH.. a bed bug! Gross little tick-beasts they are. I then did a quick scan of the room and found another one (dead) on one of the shelves.
I took a clear plastic bag that I kept in my dog's gear bag, and picked the bug from the bed up, tied it up inside the bag, grabbed all my stuff, and we re-packed the car. Walked up to the front desk, handed the bed bug to the clerk and told her that that was completely unacceptable, and that I wanted a refund and we were leaving. Luckily, I at least GOT my refund.
Needless to say, we were both squicked out, and decided we were just going to suck it up and finish the last 6 hours of driving, even though we'd already driven 12 hours that day. So much for a nap....
