My wife and I stayed at Belle Meade on Friday, Sept. 30. When I laid down on the bed I noticed a beetle on the curtain. I was startled when I found dozens of the same beetles behind the curtain. Then I looked closer around the room. There were many dozens of these things. I called Susan, owner of the place, and she admitted they had a problem with stink-bugs, but that she had not seen them so bad before. She said the housekeeper was supposed to vacuum them up daily! She offered us another room, which we stayed in as it was too late to find another place, but in the morning I counted twenty beetles. And these beetles fly! Besides the infestation, the bathroom door was unclosable, and the towels were worn and not well washed. All this for $180 a night. What a rip-off.
