We were assigned a room, and, as always, we check for bed bugs under the mattress. Found some dark specks and one seemed to be an immature bug of some type. We searched further and found a dead one on the rug. Our opinion -- where there's one, there's more, but didn't see any.
We called the desk (only one person on duty for this huge hotel) and she authorized a room change and our second room was just okay.
For the price, I would skip. Full Breakfast which was good, but you pay for it. It added $20 to the bill.
On checking out, I mentioned to the desk attendant that I found a dead bed bug. She didn't even take down the room number.
This is the "Worst" Western I've stayed in.
Oh yes, the TV's didn't work due to a storm.
Did they say sorry for anything? Nope.
The girl on alone at night was new and polite
