I found a site called bedbugreports.com

The three hotels I booked recently have no reports at the moment. This is all very unsettling

It is so rare to find bedbugs you are worrying about something you may never encounter. I travel nearly monthly and have never been in a hotel with bedbugs.
I appreciate your saying that. It is not something I've considered before, and would love to not think about it now.

Well, one of the hotels I chose had a report of bed bugs in March of last year. I hope they have since gotten rid of them.

It is in NYC, where it seems the bed bugs don't discriminate between the expensive and cheap hotels.

Jane4321 I am admittedly paranoid.

I live in NYC.

There are now mandatory bedbug reports in rental buildings.

What hotel was it?

By all means, take precautions against whatever worries you. A frequent traveller does that, and doesn't worry about all the other things. If you stop and think about how many people have laid their head on your pillow, sat themselves in the desk chair, cut their toenails in your bathroom ... you'd never travel at all. "Keep Calm and Carry On" has relevance to more than a horse show.

Well I would have to agree. There is a part of me that wishes I had never read this thread. I would never have checked and so wouldn't have found out. If a hotel has no reports I don't think I'll be thinking about it, but if a hotel has a report within the year, I admit it doesn't inspire confidence.

I agree but just realize that there is no guarantee the reports on that website are valid. I don’t see any proof that someone actually stated at the hotel. The reports could be from a disgruntled employee or guest.

And, it can be travelers unknowingly bringing bedbugs in - from having picked up them without knowing in another hotel, etc -

If reading reviews, the ones posted for a property on www.booking.com are confirmed to be by people who did stay at the property which they are reviewing. TripAdvisor, for example, doesn't confirm reviewers were actual guests (it's just too gigantic for them to confirm all reviews posted there even if they were so inclined) I don't know of any other such website that does as booking.com - maybe some others do the same.

One of my daughter's worked at the front desk at a higher end Disney hotel. She said bedbugs were brought into the rooms way more often by the traveler themselves than left behind by someone else.
