On 12/19/2013, I stayed the night at this hotel, as I always do when my overnight is in GSP. I am a flight attendant, and I spend most my nights in a hotel room, so it is important to be able to relax when I reach the hotel at the end of the day. This hotel has never given me cause for concern before. I love the location and the staff is generally nice. However, I am now hesitant to stay here. On 12/19-12/20, I stayed in room 222. When I woke up at 4am to get ready for work, I felt something crawl on the waistband of my sleeping pants. On instinct, I hit it. I heard it fall to the floor, but as I was in a rush to get ready, I didn't have time to look for what it was until I noticed that my hand had quite a bit of blood on it. Curious now, I looked on the floor more closely and found the bug that had been drawing blood. As it was still moving, I squished it in a tissue. As I looked at it, I thought it could be a bed bug but wasn't sure. So, I walked over to the bed, pulled up the sheets and checked the mattress at the base board and headboard area. That's when I saw two more run under the mattress. In the process of pulling the sheets up, I noticed blood spots on the sheets where I'd been bitten in my sleep. To be at the airport on time, I had to continue to get ready. I took a picture of the bed bug on my phone, kept it in the tissue, and headed downstairs. To my horror and dismay, when I presented the bloody bug to the hotel desk clerk, he showed no concern and said that I needed to get in the van for the airport. So, I stated again that this is a problem that needs to be taken seriously. He responded that he would tell the maintenance man. To which a gentleman in the breakfast area said that he would "take a look" and wrote down my room number down. I am fully aware that they give the airline crew members the same rooms, night after night. So, I would not be surprised if another unsuspecting crew member was given this room. I hope and pray I'm wrong. Off to the airport I went, and when I got there, I showed my crew. They confirmed that it was indeed a bed bug. Now, I had to fly with a contaminated bag that I kept as isolated as I could. When I finally got done for the day, I had to heat treat everything/wipe everything down with alcohol. I also had to go out and get new luggage pieces to ensure they were not in any crevice hiding. I am now incredibly paranoid about them, and I would like to prevent this from happening to anyone else.
