Bites around all my body. Dirty and nasty. The worst place I've ever been in my life

Checked In on a Friday, got numerous bites by Sunday morning!!! This hotel is infested with bedbugs due to the lack of consistent extermination program. Most owners think once or twice will be enough and don't want to pay for additional follow up visits!!

There was no monitor traps, or warnings from the front desk about the problem.

The morning front desk clerk, I will won't mention her name said she has to spray her room daily to prevent them from tracking into her room because she has t

o take walks around the property!

Best inexpensive solution, don't check in without either a spray bottle of rubbing alcohol, mattress covers and one of the following bedbug sprays:

Demand CS
Tempo SC Ultra
Intruder HPX
Suspend SC

Best on the market is CB-80 Extra
Drione which is dust for cracks, crevices, wall voids! A natural solution of Pyrethrins natural or synthetic Chrysanthemum flower powder.

I studied all the online websites for this infestation and it knowledge is power, however, only after I've been a victim.

Be prepared to have a few bites here and there. As with 90% of hotels in this city there are bed bugs everywhere, some places with more who don't have an exterminator as often and those, who are on top of the problem with spray(s) and dogs.

I bring along my own jar of pyrithrins (crushed marigold flower powder) which works EXCELLENT! Get the pyrithrins, DO NOT BREATHE IN THE POWDER, put along baseboards, at the head and foot board of bed, in drawers and you will see almost immediate relief.

Within 10 days you will see maybe 1 - 2 bugs and within a week thereafter complete relief.

Buy pyrithrins for bed bugs and roaches it works wonders without all the chemicals.

Now I have my Golden Ego back!

Just stayed one night and literally found 6 adult bugs and about ten or so nymphs. Immediately sealed my luggage and had the worst nights sleep, with bites a plenty. Manager was not very understanding. He sprayed the room but only offered a refund and no cleaning bills. I left straight away at a cost of about $150 to get my clothes dry cleaned. Stay away the place is a hell hole.

JUST GOT EATEN ALIVE. Been here for four months and not a bite. Looks like they were waiting and just attacked.

Lots and lots of bites!!!!

Just an update on this location...As of August 2008, the bedbugs (and mice, and roaches) still run rampant through the Golden Eagle.

Still a nicer SRO than a lot of these places here in SF, many of which boast living conditions so squalid they seem as if they ought to be condemned and most of which are horrendously overpriced. The Golden Eagle isn't squalid, though it is really expensive for a place with no kitchens, tv's, microwaves or fridges, and a host of infestations.

Massive bedbug infestation dating back to at least Sept, 2001. Large rodent population to supplement bedbugs' diet. This could (and has) been one of the better SRO's in this city, but infestation appears intractable. City wide rent strike, anyone?
