Around June 15, 2011 a lady who had been staying on the second floor (only 3 floors to this hotel and 60 rooms) took a bedbug to the front desk. The management did not notify their maids on that floor until at least a day later. According to Holiday Inn National Customer Service representative no report had been made to them by Saturday June 18, 2011. They said their protocol was that a report was to be made to them immediately upon someone making bedbugs known to the hotel and then the room cordoned off and an inspection made and proper removal etc. They reiterated that no report had been made to them. Someone notified the Craig County Health Department. They sent their environmental inspector Sharon (918-542-0484). On Tuesday, June 21, 2011, the hotel manager Julie and the owner Sonnie Patel stated that the mattresses from two rooms were laying on a flatbed out in the sun. Sharon, the inspector, said that based upon her experience her opinion was that the rooms had been infested for at least 6 months. Workers, suspected of making the report to the Health Department, were fired. \n\nThere were multiple generations of bugs and there were thousands behind the wall-mounted headboard, wall mounted mirror, behind the light switch covers etc. \n\nThe inspector said the infected rooms and the adjacent rooms and the rooms above and below were to be blocked off, not rented and inspected and pesticide applied etc for 7 days. Yet Sonnie Patel was overheard telling the maintenance man, ""to have those rooms ready in 2 days"". \n\nIt appears from the outside, given the lack of following Holiday In protocol and the slow response that had someone not notified the health department, these bugs would have been swept under the carpet---again.

This Holiday Inn Express is basically unknown. So it's not always full of people. It's a more quiet place. It's also by a Walmart if you forget anything. Nice, clean, nice breakfast. We have stayed there.
