“Blessing Turned To Curse - Bed Bugs and Management's Denial”
Reviewed 22 October 2012

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.

Would have been more comfortable sleeping on the floor or in our van. They were not going to honor the reservation with priceline.com and at the last minute (when we were about 30 minutes away) they decided they had a cancellation and allowed us to come. Wish they hadn't. We have two young children and they have breathing problems, so though we asked for non-smoking and the whole hallway was non-smoking, I had to stuff clothing along bottom of door to keep smoke from entering room. Will not stay there again, and as we are moving in the area, we will not advise anyone to stay there.

Room Tip: Find a room in Lynchburg. It's only about 20 mintues away.

I stayed in the motel Thursday night, and found the room to be very clean. The breakfast was adequate, and the employees were friendly and helpful. I would stay there again, and felt it was a great deal for the money! There is nothing negative I can post about my stay.

Room Tip: A good deal for the money.

Was in town for a family wedding. There are no other hotel/motels in the area so we were stuck staying here. Before we could put luggage down we had to kill a half dozen stink bugs and two rather unfriendly spiders. The room was covered in nicotine residue. The carpet reeked as well as was sticky. The bathroom tub looked as if it hadn't been cleaned in like forever. The bed could have doubled as a trampoline and the furniture was broken down and filthy.

Packing up in the morning and leaving, thank goodness. Three stink bugs in the room, stains on carpet and easy chair and the towels are thin. Also, the noisy highway is not conducive to sleeping well. The TV is very old and all of the ticker tapes and the numbers of the channels are blurry on the screen...so blurry that you can't read them at all. It is a moderately priced motel but it is clear that they need to either clean up their act or reduce their price!

Room Tip: Stay at a B&B in town or go to Lynchburg. There is another chain motel in this town but I heard...
