Unfortunately, bed bug infestations are very common in hotels and motels. Unsuspecting guests check into their rooms and wake up covered in bed bug bites. When hotel and motel guests are exposed to bed bug infestations during their stays, they can suffer significant harm – ranging from bed bug bites, skin infections, allergic reactions, mental and emotional distress, and property damage, for instance.
After being exposed to a bed bug infestation at a hotel or motel, the least that hotel and motel owners can do is to offer a refund. However, some hotel and motel owners completely disregard affected guests and can refuse to offer refunds. If this happens, affected parties might have other options – including suing the hotel or motel owner.

Some Examples of the Damages Resulting from Bed Bug Infestation
Exposure to bed bugs in a hotel or motel could lead to significant damages, including but not limited to the following:
- Bed bug bites
- Allergic reactions
- Skin infections
- Mental and emotional distress
- Property damage
- Extermination costs
Are You Eligible for a Refund?
Hotel and motel stays can be expensive. Depending on the specific location of the hotel/motel as well as the duration of the stay, the cost could be well over a few thousand dollars. Without a doubt, if you find bed bugs in your room, you could be entitled to a refund – although whether you get a refund will depend strictly on the details of the hotel’s policy. Depending on the hotel’s refund policy, affected parties might get full refunds, partial refunds, or some sort of credit. As aforementioned, giving affected guests a refund is the least thing that hotel and motel owners could do after a guest is exposed to bed bugs and suffers bed bug bites among other harm. However, hotel and motel owners can shamelessly refuse to offer affected guests refunds. What are my rights if a hotel or motel refuses to give me a refund after I suffered bed bug bites? If the motel or hotel owner refuses to give you a fair refund, you could explore the other options available to you.
What are Your Legal Options?
If you are exposed to a bed bug infestation at a hotel or motel and suffer bed bug bites and other harm, you might have grounds to sue. That is, you could file a bed bug claim for the harm suffered. This is because hotel and motel owners have a duty to ensure that their entire premise is safe for their guests; this includes making sure that their premises are free of pests and vermin – such as bed bugs. If you are negligently exposed to a bed bug infestation at a hotel or motel, resulting in bites or other harm, you could sue the hotel or motel owner. If you are interested in learning more about your right to sue after suffering bed bug bites at a hotel or motel, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our firm immediately.

What Else Could You Recover?
