We initially booked for 4 nights. A few hours into the 1st night, I was awakened by itching on my wrist and finger, and decided I had received mosquito bites. On the 2nd night, I was awakened at 4 a.m. by soreness at the corner of my mouth and bottom lip. Upon looking in the bathroom mirror, I found that my lip/face were swollen and discovered that my eyebrow/eyelid were also swollen. I sat in the bathroom, did some research, and decided that I had bed bug bites! I went to the night clerk to show him what I was experiencing. He was sympathetic, but tried to convince me they weren't bed bug bites. He asked if we were leaving immediately. I said not at that time of 5 a.m., but we would definitely be checking out later. He gave me the name and number of the manager, which was at least a helpful thing to do. I ended up putting towels on the tile bathroom floor to sleep for a few more hours--I knew that bedbugs surely wouldn't be there, and they weren't. Later in the morning, I called the booking service we had used, and they helped us negotiate canceling the remainder of our reservation. We asked that the hotel management also refund us for that 2nd night, but the management did not agree to this. Additionally, I found that the upholstered chair in the room had not been vacuumed, and the bathroom just off of the breakfast area was quite dirty. It was a relief to go to another hotel!
When the swelling of the bites went down, the small red bites were evident, and the itching continued for some days. Definitely would not ever return to this hotel.
