Found 2 reports:

Stayed three nights: Checked in the night of Friday 7/26/2019 and checked out Monday 7/29/2019.

Saturday morning I woke up with small clusters of what looked like 3-5 ant bites on by right foot, left hand, neck, and face. One of the guests who was on our trip is a General Practitioner (MD) and he told me they looked exactly like bed bug bites. He was staying with others in a different room and we were together the entire trip and none of them got any bug bites at all.

I got more of these

bites the 2nd night. It was at this point that we decided it couldn't have been mosquitoes.

When we got back to the hotel Sunday night, we checked the sheets and under the mattress and didn't find anything. We decided it must be a coincidence and we stayed the night. Before going to bed, we counted the number of bites on our hands, feet, arms, legs, necks, and heads. At 2am Monday Morning, I woke up very itchy with fresh bed bug bites. I immediately tore the sheets off the bed and I found a bed bug laying near where I was sleeping. I also found another near the headbaord of the bed on the skirt.

We called the hotel and the hotel staff member said they would send up a key to a new room and hung up on us. A security guard handed us a key, said "610" (our new room #) and walked away.

The next day the hotel denied that there were bed bugs and were completely shocked when we showed them a cup that had two of them in it. They continued to deny it, and said they were not bed bugs and that they just looked similar, but I still have the pictures of the bugs and the welts to prove it. The pictures of the beg bugs we found are fairly high quality and would definitely be more than enough to identify them.

The person who told us this was very condescending and couldn't give us a reason why the bugs that look exactly like every picture of bed bugs on the internet wasn't a bed bug. We even looked up other bugs that often were mistaken for bed bugs and they did not look like them at all.

We asked them to throw our clothes in their industrial dryer and they did.

The hotel did end up comping our stay. However, the reason I am submitting this is because the management at that Holiday Inn purposefully covered this up and I am angry about it. We have pictures and witnesses to this coverup, and hopefully we didn't bring any of these bugs home with us. We will probably know soon.
