Name of Location: Best Miami
5959 Southwest 71st Street, South Miami, FL
Details: My wife and I stayed at the Red South Beach hotel 11/9/-11/12/14. We were in two rooms where the bed bug bites could have occurred. Room 503: We were in the room and bed for a few hours and then were moved to room 403 due to a non-working A/C unit. Slept in the bed in Room 403 and awoke the next morning with bites all over our bodies. I informed the management and they did a cursorily look at the bed and bedding and then moved us again to another room. No issues in the 3rd room.

Name of Location: East Town Studio Apartments
7215 AshevilleHwy, Knoxville, TN
Details: Two months after I moved in I noticed odd little spots on my arms and legs. A friend suggested that my apartment had bedbugs. At first I laughed if off that decided to check it out. I did a lot of research online first, especially to find their hiding spots and any health issues that may arise with them. What I found was horrible. Underneath the matter was almost completely covered with eggs, nympths, adults and molten skeletons. I addressed the landlord who let it slip that they had this problem before, but that was not disclosed before I signed the lease. They were supposed to heat treat the apartment last month and have not. Nor have they made any form of contact with me to reschedule and form of treatment at all. Do not move into this complex at all for any reason.

Name of Location: StudioPlus St Louis-Earth Cty
3125 Rider Trail South, Earth City, MO
Details: This is now an Extended Stay America. I've stayed here several times in the past few months with no problems. This week I was here Monday - Wednesday. On Wed morning I woke up with itchy red large spots on my face, neck, shoulders, arms, and torso. I checked the bed and linens and did not see any black spots or obvious bug evidence. I checked out and informed the desk clerk. She said she would have a manager call me back that morning. However, I did not get a call and still am waiting. I went to a local Urgent Care for medical treatment and while they couldn't confirm bed bug bites they said it looked like it and was either that or some other type of insect. Since the hotel has not called me back, I'm filing a report here and on TripAdvisor.

Name of Location: Dallas Inn Suites
, Waxahachie, TX
Details: Awaken on the third night stay at this motel with what I thought was a irritating rash on my lower abdomen with persistent irritation all day while at Crengland Truck Driver training school in Ceder Hill, TX. It was not until the next day that I notice a bug had fallen off me scratching my stomach while going to the rest room. Yes it was a bed bug. Later another SR student informed me he had been given another room due to bed bug found on his roommate bed the night before. I reported incident again to the nurse at training center and also to the director of the school. I and my roommate was moved to another room (150). The nurse at the school suggested I apply Cortisone cream to relieve itching. Not to scratch because the infection can spread to other areas not infected from the bites of the bed bug(s). This is day 11 after the first bite and my skin feels like something is constantly crawling underneath my clothing and yet the cream has help to relive the itching somewhat, I will be visiting my personal doctor after my training. I just don't feel right mentaly and physically.

Name of Location: Aqua Palms & Spa
1850 Ala Moana Blvd, Honolulu, HI
Details: I stayed at the hotel for ~5 nights. Each morning I woke up with a few large red bumps on my neck, however, I didn't think much of it until the 3rd night. I was sitting in my bed working on my laptop when I saw a beg bug walking next to my legs across the sheets. I immediately squished it, and it left a sizable blood mark on the sheets. I immediately packed my bags and they were kind enough to give me another room. I didn't have any more bites for the rest of my visit.

Check That Room!
Before You Book That Hotel
Bedbugs (or bed bugs) are becoming an epidemic in hotel rooms throughout the United States. Larger cities, especially New York City are literally infested with them. Before staying in a hotel room for the night these days, it is best to spend five minutes and check the room for bedbugs. Some of the pictures of victims are downright gruesome. The bugs come in the night and bite along the thickest veins in your legs in the middle of the night where your slumber is at it's deepest
level. Bedbugs are small black creatures, but you should be able to pick them out by following a few simple procedures. Here are some tips to and information on how to check for bed bugs around the hotel room.
1. Pick up the mattresses in the rooms and look under it. Check around the edges of the box springs.
2. Check under the box spring.
3. Look at the corners of the room. Oftentimes bedbugs are wedged in corners sleeping during the day. Also, spiders do catch them and this is where they generally have their webs.
4. This is the most important tip of all. Headboards in hotel rooms are easily removed. They are basically decorative. Lift up each headboard an lie it on the bed. Carefully inspect the hole where the headboard was lifted out of. Also, inspect all niches and corners of the headboard. Remember bedbugs are very small and dead bedbug husks sometimes can be hard to pick up. If you see any type of bug or husk of small bugs, you most likely have bedbugs in the room (or at least used to).
