We arrived late on a Friday evening and when we opened the door to our room we instantly smelled a musty, old odor. The room seemed to be clean, but the odor was foul. I, being the OCD that I am, checked the room for bed bugs (because they put off a musty smell) and other rodents before I let my family come in. I saw no signs of them, thankfully! That being said, two days later we found a bug in a yogurt cup that was placed on the bed. UGH!!! We quickly checked out and told the woman at the front desk about the bug. Her real concern was that we received our bill under the door of our room that morning. She did ask where the bug was found and we were told that an exterminator and management would be notified. We asked that they give us a courtesy call to let us know what they found so that we could be prepared to deal with the WORST!! She told me that someone would call and we never heard anything more from them. We wouldn't stay here again and if you do your taking a risk! They are very convenient to Holiday World which is the only positive thing I can say!
