We had a wonderful weekend... surprised my husband for his birthday with a weekend get a away!
The motel had beautiful grounds. The room appeared clean. The was staff very pleasant. It is at the beginning of Marginal Way, which we walked several times.
About a week later after our return home the itching started. Much to my surprise and a doctor visit later, I had a costly and very disgusting problem. I was diagnosed with scabbies!!! Apparently after playing telephone tag with the owner, Jennifer Morse, and my conversation with the manager they are NOT taking any responsiblity. Nor can they confirm that being a motel and having a high guest turnover rate that they launder their sheets in 220 degree water. They claim they also launder the bedspreads, which I highly doubt.
I am totally disgusted! Never in my life had I ever had scabbies, nor did I ever encounter any one else that did. I did not even know what they were let alone how to treat them! The doctor had to explain it to me. I missed three days of work, which was very embarassing to explain to my boss! I had to clean and scour my home, launder all of our linens and clothing and treat ourselves twice to get rid of them. Not to mention the ITCH that was enough to drive any one insane!!! Realizing what a scabbie is and knowing they are microscopic in size that live under your skin leaves me feeling very uncomfortable to say the least!
I will reporting them to the BBB and also place an ad in the local newspapers. Let's see if that gets their attention!
