My husband and I checked into this motel on October 21, 2011. When we checked into our room (105), the receptionist said she would call us in 10 minutes to see if all was OK with the room (unusual in my experience). We did an inspection for bedbugs as we had been doing during this road trip and didn't find any. We saw a spot on one of the box springs but didn't recognize it as a sign of bedbug activity. When we woke up, there were blood stains on the sheets and we saw one live bug. When we reported it to reception, we got an apology and a refund. The maintenance man told us they had treated the room for bedbugs and the room had been closed up for a month. He was extremely apologetic and we suspected he may have been the owner or manager. We have researched the subject of bedbugs and will be more alert and knowledgeable in future inspections. We took the precaution of drying our bedclothes and my pillow at a laundromat on the highest temperature for 45 minutes to kill any bugs or their eggs. I feel we dodged a bullet since we didn't take the problem home with us. Five days later, I started reacting to the bites (I got over two dozen), which didn't show up or itch right away. A few days ago, I checked bedbugreports.com and didn't see this motel as having a report of activity, which it should have. It was a truly negative experience and I am warning my family and friends to be cautious when it comes to this growing problem.
