We always check the bed as soon as we enter a hotel room. This time we found something-just not sure what. The bed did not have a fitted sheet over the mattress so it was easy to turn the sheet back. When we did we found something small, dark brown and translucent along the upper rib of the mattress. We though it resembled pictures we've seen of shed bed bug skin--or it could have been a popcorn hull--or something else--hard to tell when you're not really sure what you are looking for. After this discovery, we checked the entire mattress and pad and found nothing except lint, a few small light brown spots on the pad (?) and one short hair. The bottom line is we put the bed back together, slept in it and DID NOT receive any bites. As always, we made sure our luggage was closed and did not leave it on the floor.
When inspecting the bed we noted that the carpet had not been vacuumed close to the bed or in the corners. The two other negatives--A slow draining tub and thin towels.
The positive--Overall the place is pretty clean.
We ate downtown at the Headwaters Bar and Grill and thought they served a pretty decent burger.
