Well, let's just say it was a bad night..
I am a subcontractor. I travel for my job, so my idea of a good hotel is a hot shower, and a good sleep (sometimes a fresh cup of coffee in the morning, but I'm not greedy). My crew consists of 3 men, myself included, so we had two queen beds and a roll-away. It was getting late at night (11pm, hah) and it was time to pass out. I had the bed furthest from the door in Rm. 112. I was moving around a lot, thinking I was just itchy, but within a few minutes I was really itchy. I shot up and stumbled to the bathroom, turned on the light and I had bug bites all up my arm, and on the outer part of my ear. I have a sensitivity to mosquito-like bites, so I swell up and get red pretty quickly. I researched a couple websites about bed bugs to see if I had the correct symptoms (which I did). The guy on the roll-away was itchy and got up to see what happened. Upon searching his bites, he found an insect, approximately 2mm long, light red in color. Bed bug! I've stayed in a lot of hotels in my career, and this is the first time I've seen bed bugs. I started getting real itchy, so I went to the front desk in my pajamas and work boots. I told the man behind the counter that me and another guy got hit with bed bugs in the same room. I was keeping my cool, but agitated on the amount of sleep I was losing. He gave us another room but insisted the third guy, who was not being eaten alive, was okay to stay in his bed….
Honestly, as you have seen, I can write a book based on my night at this Not-so Quality Inn. I'll just hit ya with the important factors when you're choosing a hotel for the night.
Rm. 118, I found cockroaches, a hypodermic needle next to the bathroom door, and "red food coloring" stains (as the hotel clerk said) on the floors, especially by the bed. I don't know about you, but I always have a bottle of red food coloring JUST in case (insert sarcasm here).
I was able to manage 3 hours of sleep that night, but I was too paranoid that I had these bugs on me. Next morning, I went to search the bugs in Rm. 112, and under the mattress it was infested. I can statistically say 2 out of the 3 rooms we had had serious issues.
I will not be staying here again, although Quality Inns are my preferred choice of hotels. This one needs a name change to avoid confusion of a good hotel.
