We were at this motel 3 days, 2 nights. The morning of our second night the sheet was partially off the bed, my daughter looked and noticed a bug trying to crawl back into the bed. We caught it, Used Google Images to compare the bug to a bed bug, and sure enough that is what it was. We brought the bug and the images of bed bugs off the internet down to the front desk, the manager swore up and down that it wasnt a bed bug and it was just some kind of beetle. Then another manager came over and looked and said yes it was a bed bug. They then half [--] searched our room for more and swore there was only the one bug. They called Ecolab and had us leave our stuff in the room to get sprayed, they had us leave the motel and return 20 minutes later, when we returned to get our belongings there was no sign of anything being sprayed. And when we were packing up our stuff, we found a dead bed bug on the bed. We had to bag all of our belongings x3, throw away all of our luggage to make sure we did not bring the little critters back home with us, any clothing we brought with was bagged and we had to take it right to the laundry mat to be washed and dried to get rid of any bugs on our clothing, we spent the whole car ride home itching and scratching, and then once we got home had to call our local pest control to make sure that we handled it correctly and that there was no way of them being tranferred into our home. For precaution, we had to leave all of our stuff outside. Needless to say, We will NEVER stay here ever again and we would advise other not to either. The one manager could have cared less that we had to throw our stuff costing us an arm and a leg to replace everything we had to throw, suitcases, make-up, baby formula, diaper bag, diapers, make-up brushes and bags. He was just rude. And not to mention wasted a whole day of house hunting, because we had to vaccum our car, go to the store to get garbage bags to bag our stuff, go to the laundry mat, and do all the necessary precautions. NOT impressed.
