Have you experienced bed bugs in a hotel recently?
Post a comment below and tell us about it!
The fact is, that even the best rated hotels in the world can get a bed bug infestation. Naturally, this can lead to huge problems for the hotel, but the most important aspect is how the hotel handles complaints, and how fast they take the correct action, in order to stop the spread of bed bugs.
The bad hotels may blame you, the visitor, instead of taking action (paying for treatment) when it is most needed. These are the kind of hotels you want to stay far away from.

Bed Bugs On The Rise Everywhere
Bed Bug horror stories, combined with a government statement this summer warning of an “alarming resurgence in the population of bedbugs” in the United States, are very bad news for hotel managers. Hotels depend on attracting travelers with the image of a clean and comfortable stay away from home.
The “b-word” is bad business. Most hotels don’t even say they are bedbug-free.
“It’s a word that makes everybody very nervous,” said Daniel Mount, associate professor at Pennsylvania State University’s School of Hospitality Management. “It’s such an obnoxious, gross issue.”
Mount, who has been in the industry and teaching about it for 30 years, said he’s never seen anything like this. Any mention of bedbugs in a traveler review on websites like TripAdvisor can be very damaging to a hotel.
