We arrived at the hotel and the first thing I noticed was the overwhelming smell of smoke in the hall way. When we got into the room it had an overall dingy feel. The bed was hard as a rock and the linen did not smell fresh at all. After pulling back the first set of covers we saw that the second blanket had cigarette burns on it. Later on in the evening we decided to relax in the hot tub. It took over twenty minutes for the tub to fill up and the “hot water” was barely even warm. When we sat in the tub it felt rough and you could feel the deep ridges where it had been worn down. Needless to say it was in need of an update. We got out of the hot tub and dried ourselves off with small rough towels. It took 3 towels to come even close to being dry since they were so thin and did not absorb any of the water.
We would have run out the door, but it was our honeymoon and the room was a gift and quite frankly we were broke and had nowhere else to stay for the night. We were exhausted from the long day so we did not have much trouble falling asleep. The next morning we woke for the continental breakfast. The breakfast consisted of coffee, cheap doughnuts and cereal, that’s all. We had better luck at the nearby gas station with food. After breakfast we decided to watch the football game. The TV had terrible color and kept flickering on and off.
As if all this wasn’t bad enough… two hours after leaving my husband began to itch and we noticed several red bumps on his neck and shoulders. We went to the Dr. immediately to have them checked out and he informed us that he had undoubtedly been bitten by BED BUGS. We had not stayed any other place that weekend and when we went to our new apartment (where my husband had been staying the week before by himself) we did not find anything, nor have we received any more bites. Clearly the only place he could have gotten them was the dingy, run down, hotel we had spent our honeymoon in. After we spoke with the manager he called in Orkin, told us they were unable to find anything and because of that they could only offer us 50% of our money back or a complimentary stay. There is no way we would take the complimentary stay.. ….why would we want to stay in that awful place again? And as for the 50%... what about the Dr. fees and the fact that it put a huge damper on our first week of marriage! I would never recommend for anyone to stay there!
