I rolled in at about 11:30pm, planning to stay only one night. The room looked cheap and older, but for $40 looked like a cozy place to settle.
I went across the street to the local bar and hung out for a bit before returning around 1:30am.
Upon return I did some work on my laptop for a bit before easing my way into the bed.
But as I laid on the bed I saw a bed bug crawling freely on the mattress. I jumped out of bed to find another one crawling towards where I laid from the other side.
In pure paranoia I packed all my stuff up, called the front desk demanding a refund (of which they sounded unsurprised by the presence of bed bugs). They gave the refund and I drove off seeking a new hotel at 2:30am.
The place looks cool on the surface, but I have never ran into bed bugs at a hotel until now. They're real and they itch when they bite. Sleepers beware.
