My Mom is taking my girls & I for 2 nights (this week) to what is supposed to be a nice hotel near the beach here in NJ. I am reading reviews on Trip Advisor & getting lots of mixed ones about cleanliness/housekeeping staff in general, but Bed Bugs have come up at least a couple times...I def see once in 2009 and once just a few weeks ago as I am going through the reviews.
I know Bed Bugs have become a huge problem in many places but we are still trying to break the flea cycle in the rental we moved into & I can't even stomach the thought of dealing with Bed Bugs.
My initial thought was to call my Mom & tell her & see if she would book a different hotel, but she already thinks I am crazy for my "opinions" on things & my internet over-research etc. So I am a little nervous to do that over a couple of Trip Advisor reviews.
Are there any ways to avoid bringing them home?
What to look for when we check in, before we even put our stuff down?
Give me your take...
