The USA Today posted a good article on the rising incidents of bedbugs in the US. You can check out the full article here. The article links to a website, bedbugregistry.com, where over 20,000 travelers have posted their stories of their bedbug encounters. The database has hotels from shady road side inns… to some of the top hotels in the country.
We took a look at the hotels in Southern California and were surprised to see many top brands on the list… and many with multiple reports. Bedbugs are a fact of life in the hotel industry. Just like any other complaint, handling the problem properly will usually keep you away from this type of bad publicity.
