When I turned out the light, I found at least 8-9 bed bugs on the sheet and pillows, and there was bloody spots all over the bed! Appalled and horrified, I called the front desk and reported the bed bugs. To my utter disbelief, the person answered was rude and curt; she didn't offer a single word of apology; instead, her attitude was condescending...

On Sep 5 2012 ...middle of the night I woke up with itch all over. When I turned on the light I found at least 6-7 bugs on the bed sheet and pillow, big and fat with my blood! I couldn't believe my eyes as I had never encountered bedbugs in hotels in my life until then. I called the hotel staff, - incredibly, they were extremely rude to me. Even though they eventually switched me to a different room that morning,...

I could not wait to leave this hotel. For a hotel located in downtown Anchorage you would think they would wanna upgrade the place. Would not recommend this hotel if you want to get a good nights sleep. I left praying to not have bed bugs.

On Aug 13 2012 When I first laid down on the bed, I suddenly felt itchy. I didn't think anything of it, I just scratched a little and then went to sleep. The next morning I found a rash on my chest. I immediately went to the bed and searched it thoroughly - I found multiple bed bugs. I would try to tell the management, but after reading the previous posts, I understand that will get me nowhere.

On Aug 7 2012 ...paid a little more to stay somewhere else. After spending 2 nights in the motel I noticed itchy bug bites and thought it was mosquitoes. When I got home from my trip and undressed to take a shower and realized I was covered in bites. I immediately took all of my luggage and put it in the garage in a trash bag. I haven't seen any bugs but I was seen by a physician who was 99% sure I had been bit...

Before signing the guest paperwork we asked to see the room, went up, inspected it for bed bugs . nothing found . looked at the pillows . lipstick and makeup on the pillow case . Took the actual pillow case down to the desk and said we can't stay in that room, do you have another? Went to the second room . hair in the sheets and on the pillows. The beds must have been remade without changing...

Ive dealt with bed bug issues before and I strongly do not recommend staying in this run down old hotel. Be careful! Don't take...

On Jan 8 2012 Terry P wrote, BED BUGS awful experience. The manager Ed, was very rude and arrogant. His responds to me when I asked him to pay for another hotel room, and the cost of cleaning all of my belonging was "NO I DON"T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING FOR YOU, IT'S NOT MY PROBLEM". He refunded my money for that night and he felt that was all he had to do. The man was cold and heartless, very bad business person, no mortal ethics.

On Jan 6 2012 At 4 a.m. I woke up, turned on the light, and saw about 10 bites on my shoulder, thumb, arm, wrist, head. We saw at least 5 bugs in my bed and several in my sons bed. When I told the manager, he was arrogant and very rude and would only switch us to another room. We chose to go to another hotel. I called Pest Control and had to have everything treated and washed, which Howard Johnsons would not reimburse...

When they went to the front desk clerk she said, "Oh yah, we've been getting some complaints about that". WHAT!?!? Until they completely tear out the beds and replace carpeting, I would avoid this hotel.
