After driving all day we were looking for a motel to spend the night with our small dog. August 12, 2012. We stay at choice hotels because we are members. NEVER AGAIN! We checked in around 9:45 p.m. and the room looked dirty but we were exhausted and had to stay somewhere for the night. BIG MISTAKE! The coffee maker had the used filter in it from the previous guest. After getting ready for bed, we noticed the room was filfthy. Too late to do anything. Pulled back the sheets and the beds looked clean. WRONG! The next morning when we checked out early I started itching and thought I got bitten by a mosquito or something, not too bad. As the day went on and we were driving home to Sarasota, the itching got worse and worse, until I realized I was bitten by bed bugs. The next day went to the Dr. who confirmed. A day or two later, my husband started itching and same result after seeing the Dr. We were both given prednisone shots and meds and it took about a week for the rash to go away and the itching to stop. I called the 800 choice hotel no. because Quality Inn did not care about my problem until corporate contacted them.
Our night's stay and pet fee were fully refunded but we wanted our meds covered. The manager finally contacted us after I threatened to call health dept and said their insurance company would get in touch with us. Never did. The management of this hotel;/motel could not have cared less about us. When I complained at checkout there was a man right behind me who was also very upset about his filfthy room and said there were fleas in his room. I am thinking they must have been bed bugs too.
Check it out before you book. Go to trip advisor or yelp.com This entire hotel is filfthy
