I realize that bed bugs happen. It's kind of par for the course sometimes in budget hotels. At the same time, some of them manage to avoid them or rectify the situation with grace and reason. Not the case here in my opinion. In the first place, the rooms aren't necessarily clean in the first place. Sure, things are wiped down and walkways are vacuumed, but the dust build up and all out dirt along the sides and under the bed suggest cleanliness is not the highest priority. There was also water damage on the ceiling in the bathroom that no one even attempted to fix. The smoke detector was just hanging from the wall by its wire. Still, not too big a deal. It just seems like nobody cares about the place and its showing up in the details. Finally, we found a bed bug in one of our five rooms. We researched it and.confirmed it. After the heebie jeebies were through, we took the bed to the front desk and he confirmed it for us. Although he did move us to a different room, no discount was offered until we spoke to a manager the next day, and that was almost an insult at 25% off from one room, for one night. Aftwr what we will all have to go through (16 of us) to rid ourselves of any potential infestation, that hardly seems compensation.
On top of this, we researched further complaints on this hotel and found our exact room numbers, 310 & 312 in other bed bug reports! Someone is dropping the ball here or just does not care about their guests. Avoid the hassle, stay elsewhere!
