My family has been very fortunate over the years to have never encountered bed bugs in a hotel we have stayed at but one thing we always struggled with was “How to be sure?” Although we have never seen bed bugs, I always worried that maybe I wasn’t looking in the right place. Do you know how to properly search for bed bugs in your hotel room?
The first thing you should do is inspect your room before you pay for your stay. This isn’t always possible, but when it is, do so. If nothing else, avoid bringing your luggage to your room before you inspect it.
Next, follow the directions in the video below for how to properly inspect your room for bed bugs.
If upon inspection you find that your room isn’t satisfactory, go directly to the front desk concierge and request a new room and don’t forget “You get more bees with honey,” be nice until given a reason otherwise. We often receive room upgrades, discounts, or an extension to our stay at no additional charge when our rooms are unsatisfactory upon arrival.
