Honeymoon gone bloody on 07/20/2012
Bedbug adults seen in room 238. We inspected the bed and found bugs on pillow and mattress. Went to complain at the desk, the guy there said he had worked there for 1.5 yrs and had not heard of problems. Considering that there is a previous bed bug report for the SAME room, he must have been lying. I'm now writing this in another room in the same motel and am terrified and so scared that the bugs will follow me home. Never stay at this place.

I had to overnight in Phoenix after the tornadoes hit Dallas/Ft. Worth on April 3, 2012.
I stayed on the second floor in room 238.
Without a doubt the bites came from this place because I had been staying at my sister's for about a week with no problems.
The very next day I had itching and it got worse as I was heading back to San Francisco the next day on the plane.
It's now day two and I have put all my clothing that was out during my stay in a plastic bag to wash.
I slept Here in a ground floor room on March 21st. I had to catch a plane early in the morning. When i finally sat down and relaxed on the airplane i realized i was covered in bites. I called the hotel when i got back to Montreal and told them what had happened. They said that they had people in place for this sort of thing because it had happened before... they said they take these calls very seriously. They told me they would call me back when they had their professionals look at the room.
They never did. Three days later when i had finally found a manager to talk to he told me there were no problems at his hotel and definitely no bed bugs.
There is no other explanation for all my bites. I had only slept at two friends houses before the incident and after seriously looking into the issue have reported that they don't have any problems-- its been over a week and the investigation is confirmed.
There is no doubt in my mind that my hotel bed had beg bugs. I had once come across bed bugs 10 years ago when i was traveling in Thailand and had the same swift reaction. Terrible terrible bites the next morning. I have been itching like crazy for over a week. I am fantastic bate and can recommend that you seriously check your bed before you sleep at any hotel. This happened at an Econolodge but it could have happened at a hilton!!!!!
