Name of Location: Knights Inn St. Petersburg Tropicana
2595 54th Ave North, St. Petersburg, FL
Details: March 21, 2015, Room 260 Prepaid $125 for what is normally an $80 room using Hotwire, so it was nonrefundable - combination of spring break with local events made rooms in area scarce and unusually expensive. I've never had problems with Hotwire rooms before, and I do not take this as typical, but I needed to find a vacant room within 30mi of my destination for an event at 5:30am on 3/22/15. Checked in at ~11pm, and was immediately told I'd have to pay a $50 upgrade fee to get a non-smoking room (I don't smoke, but I'm not fussy about sleep) or a room with a microwave/fridge (I had no food). Owner/attendant was reluctant to honor my reservation as booked, which was suspicious, but I really just wanted my room so I could catch at least a few hours sleep. The room was clearly stained from smokers abuse, but I don't judge the cleanliness of a room just by that. I checked the beds immediately for bedbugs, as I ALWAYS do when traveling. Immediately I smashed two blood-filled crawlers on the first corner of the mattress I checked. They were located on the bed farther from the door, on the side next to the nightstand. I checked the other bed for good measure, and there were active crawlers there too (I didn't smash them). I reported the bedbugs to the front desk and was told to come down to get a different room. For the record, the alternate room was only a couple units away (room 266). (It had a microwave/fridge, so I'll be checking my credit card to see if an upgrade fee was charged.) The room was visibly dirtier (if that's possible to imagine), but my thorough checks of both beds (mattresses and box springs), headboards, lampshades, dressers, nightstands, and hanging artwork yielded no active bedbugs (although I did stir up a lot of dust and debris in the process). I also found several other insects and arachnids that had been smashed by prior guests in that room. I did find debris in the bed creases but no signs of active bedbugs (although I did treat my stay as if I would be bitten that night and would likely have hitchhikers afterward).

Name of Location: Hampton Inn And Suites Crosstown Center
811 Massachusetts Avenue, Boston, MA
Details: Found a single sesame-sized bug in the morning. No bites on me at all, bug was dead. Did not find any others under mattress, in sheets, etc. It looked like it shook out of the pillow when I was moving pillows around. Possible it was killed in the laundry when they washed the pillow cases, which would mean it came from elsewhere in the hotel. Reported it to management.

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).
