What can I say!!! Never in my life have I experienced something like this, and I have stayed in some shady motels in my young days.
I booked this hotel due to its convenient location as a stop close to our final destination. We arrived late at night and put the kids straight to bed. BIG MISTAKE. Forget the stains on the pillows Within minutes my wife noticed the 1st bug, and it is not of the tiny variety. I thought maybe that was just one, but I was wrong again. As it is normally with bugs, more started crawling out of the pillows and on both beds. We quickly pulled the kids out of bed and proceeded to checkout.
To my shock, the management did not seem surprised or dismayed and offered us another room, but my wife insisted we leave and I concurred. The manager was so incompetent he could not even print a cancellation receipt.
We spent quite some time finding a decent hotel with availablity as I decided to go to the Pearson airport area because I could not take any more risks. As I type this from my new hotel room, I feel so betrayed by the Holiday Inn brand. I did my research on this hotel but either I did not look deep enough or some people just don't mind bugs.
If you are an entomologist, your stay there will be interesting, otherwise do yourself a favor and stay away.
