La Quinta Inn - Head Lice
Overnight Stay With Unexpected Visitors! - Complaint
HUTCHINS, TEXAS -- My son and I checked in at this hotel on February 24, 2012, for one night. The room appeared to be clean and well furnished and we had no issues. The following morning, I awoke to feeling "tingling" on my scalp. Thinking it was dry scalp, I showered and washed my hair. Not long afterwards, we checked out. A while later, I again felt tingling and itching, and it felt like little bugs crawling over my scalp. To my horror, I had head lice!
Driving home the 5 hours, I was extremely itchy and continued to feel something crawling. My son had slept on the other bed and was not affected, thankfully! I left feedback about the hotel on the travel site where I had booked the room. I had one message appear, asking for my contact number, since "the one I gave was not working." I responded back the same day with my phone number, which IS working. I also have an answering machine, but have not received a call nor a message from management at this establishment. Four weeks later, I am still fighting the infestation!!! I have had to wash bedding every night and have spent money buying OTC products to treat this without success. I am furious that I have not been able to get rid of them. My next step is a visit to the physician to get a prescription.
BEWARE OF THIS LOCATION!!!
