Responded 4 Feb 2019
Hi timgO7488ST, Hospitality has always been our forte so it's great reading your kind remarks about our staff. While I'm also glad you find value in our pricing, I'm concerned to learn about the room's upkeep. I'm also sorry for the troubles caused by the power outage and the noise coming from other guests. We value your feedback and be assured that this is shared with the management. Thanks for staying with us. Note that I also sent you a message to get more information. Regards, Jillian I Case Manager IHGService

Hi Debbie - We don't have any bed bugs in our hotel. Our staff is trained to check for bed bugs as part of our daily inspections. We have not had any reported bed bugs in quite some time now and is something that we work to prevent from occurring. Thank you for sending your question and I hope that we have clarified any concerns you may have. Best Regards ~ Brian, GM
