Bed Bugs ! I had the misfortune of staying at the Super 8 in Thurmont, MD Oct 2 and 3 '13 during a 6 week road trip for business. I awoke the first morning with a few bites I attributed to an hour the previous evening outside . The second morning I woke early to discover hundreds of bed bug bites on my upper torso. (See Photo) I imagine that bed bugs can happen anywhere and it is how an owner deals with them that you should judge the establishment.
When I showed the new owner of 1 year, Mr Jatin Thakkar, my bites, rather than apologizing or trying to make it right he was belligerent and confrontational . I was told if I left now he would give me a 25% discount on the two nights I was there but if I said a word I would get nothing back and be charged for the next 2 nights of my 4 night reservation. I was there with a group who occupied three quarters of the hotel and do so every year for a local event. When I mentioned this he told me he didn't need our business to pay his bills. Arrogance on top of belligerence is a bad combination for a business man. He portrays himself as a devout man. I am sorry but a devout man would not mistreat a traveler. He brings shame and disgrace on his family and company. I have traveled five continents, including India, and I get bed bugs in Maryland, USA. Isn't that a kick !--J Downing
