While we appreciate your concerns, we do not however have a room 547. May I suggest you contact the hotel and request to speak with a manager in order to identify the correct room to be investigated rather than post such comments that are incorrect. In fact, there has been no "bed bug" incidents at this location. More

Worst I've ever seen. Dirty!! Words can't express how dirty this place was. Stained furniture, dirty sheets, dirty carpet, awful smell ( my husbands hunting camp smells better) and BUGS! Too bad I didn't check the reviews first.
