bed bugs everywhere! the worst thing is that they travel with human and you can treat them as much as you like, they won't die anyway. Pretty much all you can do is: go to the shower wash yourself and run away naked to a better place. ALL the stuff must be treated in high temp dryers before you take... More

PIHC_Manager, Manager at Pineapple Inn and Housing Center, responded to this review

We are very perplexed by this report. Why is it being reported just now, when the guest supposedly stayed in June? We received no complaints from any guest during that time of year related to pest of any kind. We also could not find a record of a guest with that name. Perhaps they have us confused with another property.... More

I was afraid of staying at the Pineapple Inn after reading the review on Trip Advisor, however other friends had stayed at the hotel and said it was fine. So I stayed with my two friends for 3 nights. The hotel is not new, and we knew this, so we were happy to find that they had clean linens, comfortable... More

We booked this hotel through Hotwire. This hotel was listed as a 3 star-and noted it was in line with Holiday Inn, so we booked it. Went to the lobby, the customer service was poor, we had asked for places to eat and the desk clerk just pointed and stated just go down the road and you will find somewhere... More
