I am a National Convention Manager and travel for a living. I was in town for some College Fairs on Long Island and decided to stay at the Tides Motor Inn from 9/20 thru 9/23
I checked in on 9/20 around noon and was given room 17, I went to the room and dropped my bags and left to Farmingdale State College for the 1st of my 3 college fairs here. I returned to my room at around 10:30PM. I turned on my laptop while in bed and within minutes noticed a Flea crawling across my computer screen and killed it with my thumb, I figured no big deal right…. Well then I saw and killed another, then another, and yet another…. Started getting bitten on my shoulders and back… I then noticed them crawling across the television screen as I was watching the football game, got bit a few more times and then freaked out…. I grabbed my bags and left the room immediately. I went to the front office at around midnight and checked out. Told the gentleman at the front desk I couldn’t stay because of what was happening and he refunded me the next 2 nights but said he needed to speak to a manager in the AM to see if he could refund the 1st night
I didn’t stay in the room, and in fact all together was only in there for a couple of hours before making my escape
After midnight I drove to Garden City, where my next college fair was taking place the next day, and I was lucky enough to find a hotel near the college so I didn’t have to sleep in my car.
No Refund given for the 1st night by management, STAY AWAY FROM THIS FLEA BAG JOINT!!!!!
