Name of Location: Hampton Inn Milpitas
215 Barber Court, Milpitas, CA
Details: I stayed there couple of weeks ago, and its still a puzzle to me. The very first day, there was no problem but the second night, I woke up with itchy shoulders, back. When I checked I couldn't find any bugs. But had a very bad bug issue as I am sensitive to insect bites and end up seeing a doctor. Doctor confirmed it's bugs and ended up with fever/allergic reaction. The hotel folks did a great job supporting and changing the room immed (they couldnt find any bugs though) and it's still a surprise to me.

Name of Location: Best Western Holiday Sands Inn & Suites
1330 E Ocean View Avenue, Norfolk, VA
Details: My wife, mother-in-law, and I stayed here for one night on Thanksgiving Day (11/28/2013) after driving 6 hours from Pennsylvania to Virginia. My wife & I had room 710, and my mother-in-law had adjoining room (711), and she is 91 years old with very poor eyesight due to macular degeneration. Thankfully, my wife was with her at 10:30pm to help her for bedtime. After pulling back the bedspread, the bed was visibly infested with bed bugs. I put three live bugs from the sheets into a plastic cup, and took them to the front office. Front desk clerk saw the live bugs and was very apologetic, and told me he credited the full cost of that room. The three of us stayed (because it was already late at night) in room 710 but spent a lot of time inspecting the beds. Needless to say, we didn't sleep much that night. In the morning, the dayshift desk clerk Tamisha told me that both rooms would be fully charged to my credit card, and that the night shift clerk was wrong, and that an 'investigation' needed to be performed. I demanded to see the manager, but he wasn't available. She gave me a 2-page form (Incident Report) which I filled out thoroughly. I asked for a photocopy, but she refused saying that their insurance did not allow staff to provide patrons any copy of the report (that I filled out)! After 20 minutes of complaining, she finally did give me a 50% credit for the one infested room. A couple days later, another employee called me and told me both rooms would be fumigated, and that he got the manager to approve the other 50% on room 711. I now see many other reports of bed bugs at this same location. Shame on you, Best Western. I have been a Rewards Member for several years, but will never again stay at a Best Western hotel. And I will make sure my friends and co-workers are also aware of how this was terrible incident was so poorly handled.

Name of Location: Blue Ridge Apartment
775 W. Lake Street, Ft Collins, CO
Details: We have been getting bitten since June of 2012. Bites began appearing around two weeks after we moved in. I have reported bites twice to apartment management, they looked through the apartment once. Since no bugs were found, they refused to treat the apartment and told us we had fleas. The bites continued and finally we found a bed bug in our bed in December of 2013. Management clearly has little concern

Name of Location: Vacation Motor Lodge
599 S Center Street, Reno, NV
Details: I paid for a month's rent on Tuesday, November 26, 2013. That night I was bitten on my arm and hand, and the bites swelled up and were intensely ichy. I didn't know what they were at first, but after receiving multiple additional bites for the next few nights, I finally figured out that they were bed bugs. When I contacted the manager, she made it seem likt it was my problem and refused to do anything about it. I decided I couldn't stay there anymore and talked to the manager about getting a refund for the 3 remaining weeks of rent. She contacted the owner and they said it was thier policty to not give refunds, but at least they refunded my deposit. The manager actually told me that they had problems every 3 months and had sprayed the room before I moved in, so obviously whatever they were doing wasn't getting rid of the problem. I had to sleep in the bathtub the last night before I moved out because I was starting to have breathing problems related to the bites. Thankfully I didn't get any more bites that night. This was a nightmare that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy!

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).
