My boyfriend and I were supposed to check in to one of the standard rooms on a weekend. The hotel was hosting 2 weddings and were overbooked, so we got upgraded to one of the two cottages available on the site. The next day, we had bed bug bites all over our legs and parts of our hands and feet. We were certain they were bed bug bites after reading the symptoms, and because they were not there the morning when we woke up from the hotel. The bites show up a few hours later in clusters, rows, and
usually in a group of 3 bites or more. If it were any other type of bug bite, we would have noticed it the moment we woke up. We reported it to the main desk and the receptionist said she would have the cottage checked, but she did not seem too surprised, which had us questioning if they had various other previous complaints about bed bugs.
Shocked and Appalled on 11/03/2011
My friends and I where planning a beautiful weekend retreat at the Pierpont Inn on October 7-9th 2011, in the gorgeous accomodations of the hotel. Unfortunately, as we prepared for bed, my friend and I picked up the mattress to check for bed bugs, and to our surprise, there was a apple seed shaped bug in the middle of the boxspring. As we leaned forward, a few more dropped from the mattress. We screamed in horror, and searched out in another friend's room to see if they had the same problem. We
didn't see any physical bugs (they hide in the boxspring) in the friend's room, but we did discover small blood dotted stains around the mattress edge which we learned are trails the bugs leave behind when they have bitten someone. We were asked if we wanted to change rooms, and we cautiously agreed to look at the room first. The room was on the other side of grounds of the hotel. As we lifted the mattress in that room (with the hotel desk clerk present), we saw brand new sheets, tempurpedic mattress, and mattress cover, and one dead bed bug on the back of the mattress. We were grossed out and checked into another hotel nearby. The hotel denied all accusations of having the bugs.
