top Canadian Hotel Sues Guest For $95K Over Bad Review, Bed Bugs
"At first this hotel looks ok....until you wake up in the middle of the night at 3:00AM because you've been scratching all over and realize your bed is infested with BED BUGS!
What a nightmare! When I reported the situation to the managing stuff, there were no emergency to handle the situation because the decision maker was not available during the week end and it was a Saturday. Instead they offered to transfer my son and I to a hotel nearby where a room was available because they were concerned I was going to cause Mayhem They finally offered to investigate the room despite the 4 BED BUGS I had contained in a glass and pictures and videos I had showed them. I was supposed to stay one more night but instead chose to move to a hotel nearby; turned out to be cleaner-up to date-bigger room- and cheaper rate and that was the Holiday Inn Express down the road at 3145 Avenue de Hotels. Beware of BED BUGS! If you are looking for a scratch free night sleep, stay elsewhere, you will be doing you and your loved ones a favour! Trust me...and that's why the Internet is a great tool!
