Travelodge Informative - Bed Bugs - Hotel

Review by snipsnip on 2008-07-28
WINCHESTER, VIRGINIA -- We recently stayed at a Travelodge in Winchester VA. We woke to a bed infested with bugs. We quickly contacted the desk. It took 15-20 min before someone arrived at our door. They sent 2 men, they looked at our bed, which still had bugs crawling and smashed ones, with blood streaks. They said nothing,and left.
We went down to the desk and the woman said there would be no charge for the room. We just recently found we were charged half price. When I called the hotel, they gave me the number of the owner. He told me that unless I can show there were more than a couple, he was not going to refund my money. I have never heard of anything so crazy.

I should have raised a fuss and took other guest in the hotel into my room to show them. Instead, I was very discreet and polite.

How recently did you stay? Frankly, on first arriving home, I'd quarantine every piece of clothing and luggage that was in that room. Put the clothes in scalding water and spray the luggage with insecticide. You don't want those things infesting your home.

So less than a couple of bugs is worth a 1/2 price stay in this owner's eyes? I wonder what he offers if a guest spotted a rat?
Did it smell like someone was cooking toxic waste back behind the front desk?
Did the receptionist have a push start button on his/her forehead?
Lodging has really gone down the toilet with all these hooka hooka owners.
