The Calgary hotel business must be rolling in the bucks - as it is difficult these days to find a vacancy anywhere on any given night... The economic boom may be great for many - but it is not so great for travelers. Hotels of all shapes and sizes are having difficulty finding good workers (whether maids or desk workers) - and this is reflected in the Travelodge.
Case in point, a colleague and I booked two rooms for a single night at this hotel as we were picking up a large group at the airport the next morning. Both rooms being the same, we divvied up the keys and settled for the night. Unfortunately for my co-worker, at 2:30 in the morning, she spied an insect crawling towards her across the sheet (lucky she was up reading!). Crushing it, she found it full of blood - so took a quick look and found another bug near her pillow.
Well, the fact that she remained non-plussed is simply amazing, but in meeting her in the morning in the lobby, she showed me both bugs (dead in a plastic bag). Sure enough, they were very certainly bedbugs. Not wanting to make a scene (although if it were my room, there would have been fireworks around 2:45...), I waited until the front desk was clear, then showed the two women at the desk the bugs and suggested they take immediate and severe action.
Their response was "oh, I always wondered what one looked like"... Astounding! What kind of fools work at this place ??? No "sorry", no offer to adjust or eliminate the room charges... What a joke! In researching bedbugs - they are a many thousand dollar home expense just waiting to hitchhike with travelers. The poor response to this just adds to the reasons not to stay here...
