As a touring musician, I spend a lot of time on the road and tend to stay in a lot of Super 8 hotels. We usually book lodging in advance but were winging it on this trip. We tried to find a hotel in Lynchburg, VA but found every room booked on a football Friday night. Driving an hour further East, we trusted the Super 8 brand name would ensure a clean, safe overnight experience in any town....including Appomattox, VA. We were glad to find there were two rooms available and checked in late at night.
Both of the two rooms were INFESTED WITH BED BUGS. My touring partner noticed this and changed rooms and was apparently left unscathed, but he was bitter. I was too tired to notice any problems with my room and woke up completely covered with red welts all over my body.
I was to embarrassed to approach the front desk about the nasty room and just wanted to get out of there. When we called to alert management by phone, they did immediately call back and say they were investigating the situation. Then, they denied any problem with bed bugs in their hotel and essentially called me a liar. Although, I did get one of the two rooms refunded, I still don't feel like that is a good enough solution and there still seems to be a health risk.
To my knowledge, that room has still never been cleaned or visited by an exterminator. Just terrible.
