  • the statement said that a person found one(!) bedbug on a chair at the starbucks at that resort..just sounded strange....if i would book now based on no incidents that i know of it could still change until we actually go in the summer ... i would think that would be a legit reason that you could cancel your reservation without extra charge...

  • Where did you look and get the Starbucks thing? I tend to read reviews on tripadvisor.com for decent reviews.

  • Well if the hotel already had an issue with it they probably took care of it. But that does not mean you are in the clear. GL!

  • my Mom (who doesn't travel, ever) is completely and utterly obsessed with bed bugs. We travel a bit and goto a lot of hotels.... she always begs and pleads with us that after we wake up in the hotel bed in the morning to go jump straight into the pool and not shower so hopefully the chlorine will kill whatever is on you. She also always tries to get us to keep our luggage in the car but that's a huge pain

  • Eww, I get freaked out by the word "bedbugs"! Once had to stay at a crappy hotel that my FIL booked and I checked the whole room for bugs and it just looked grimy but no bugs. I slept with one eye open. Good luck! Have fun

  • Nice hotels can have them too! There are pics online of what to look for. Memorize them.
