Ihatebedbugs on 02/26/2010
My friend was staying in Room 516, Cal Expo wing, February 25, 2010. Guest discovered approximately 5 small brown bugs on the sheets when she awoke. She called the front desk, and asked to be moved. Maintenance person that moved her luggage insisted that the creatures were not bed bugs, claimed that bed bugs could not be seen.
My room was in another wing, and since I had recently dealt with a bedbug infestation in my home (brought home from another hotel)my friend asked me to inspect her

room. Upon inspection, I found several small blood spots on the sheets (indications of bedbug bites), and a live bedbug on the mattress seam. I killed the bedbug, and not to be graphic, but the bug was full of blood (indication of recent feeding).
I reported my findings to the manager (night manager, name available upon request). Manager claims that no other room infestations in the entire hotel have been reported and that room 516-CalExpo will be taken off market until exterminators clear it.
Since bedbugs travel easily from room to room through the walls, I doubt very much that this is the only room that is infested.
