The price and the location of Barnacle Motel made me think it's a good bargain. I was totally wrong!!! The room we got on the second floor (facing the pool) was really smelly and dirty. After I went to bed at night, I felt very ichy. After I turned on the light, I saw over 20 big red bumps all over my body. Then my husband saw two big bed bugs right on our sheet crawling. Later he found 4 more bugs underneath the mattress. Our 4 months-old baby was on the other bed, there're two bed bugs in the pillow that's very close to him. Fortunately, the bugs did not bite him yet. It's already after the midnight, but we dare not and could not go back to the bed. We ran the bell in the manager's office on the first floor. The Indian guy initially pretended never heard of this bedbug problem and said it could be masquitos. After my husband caught two bugs as live evidence, he admitted that they had one incident in that room half a year ago and thought the bugs were all killed. The ridiculous part was that he offered us a bottle of bug killer spray (neural toxins) and suggested we spray on the sheet to kill the bugs, wait for a while before we get back to that bed. We asked if we can switch to another room and the answer is no. We were furious and we decided we will leave immediately and asked for refund. He reluctantly gave us the refund and we ended up finding a much pricier bug-free hotel later that night. I had been to many motels, hotels and never stayed in a horrible place like Barnacle Motel. If they keep running like this without spending money on housing-keeping and pest-control, they will run out of buisiness soon.
