It has been a week since I checked into the Garner Econo Lodge, Sunday, November 7th, for two nights. It was around 5:00 in the afternoon and the lady at the desk was very nice and accommodating. My room was nice and clean; what I would expect from an Econo Lodge price. However, when I woke up the next morning, I had seven tiny raised, red, itchy bumps in a row on one arm and two bites on the other arm. I got ready for work and packed up my things and put them in my car. When I told the guy at the service desk about the bites and showed them to him, he was taken aback. I asked to speak to the manager but she would not be in until 8:00. After getting to work, I called the manager who at first said the room was cleaned and that no one had reported any bugs. She said that they would get an exterminator to check out the room. I had no time to check into another hotel so she gave me another room-which I had no problems with. I immediately started putting hydrocortisone cream on the bumps and am now taking benedryl. This whole situation was unnerving but because of my job, I had no time to worry about it. Just a few words to travelers who stay in hotels, pull the covers back and check thoroughly for bedbugs! These bites are hard to prove as bedbug bites but I feel strongly that those critters got me!
