Upon arriving my girlfriend quickly inquired as to why the rooms facing the front of the building all had mattresses blocking the windows. That should have been our first clue to seek other accomodations. The motel itself looked hardly inhabited and with good reason. The entire operation looked as if it was going out of business which I can only assume is a matter of time. Although the young girl running the lobby was very nice and helpful, it could not disguise the overwhelming sparcity and bleakness of the hotel. Our "first" room was no exception. It had a bed and nothing else...no table, no desk, only a big empty spot where another bed used to be. This and the suffocating stench of cleaning chemicals was enough for us to request another room. Second mistake. Although the second room had no potent chemical smell and a bit more in terms of furniture there was not a single picture on any wall. But for the kicker, while taking a quick power nap we discover some other guests staying with us in the bed...bed bugs. Yup, you heard it right. Little tick like bugs of various sizes, bright red with fresh blood. After squishing a few on the pillow we proceeded to pack our belongings, marched to the lobby with the blood spotted pillow in hand and requested a full refund. The nice girl at the front desk cooperated fully and didnt seem to surprised. We checked into the Quality Inn across the street where for a bit more money we received a very nice comfortable stay. Do yourself the favor and do not go near the Motel 6 in Cameron Park.
