"Bed Bugs and mites at hotel."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I spent between $196 $141.26 with a $25 pet fee daily and stayed from 8/30 9/5/22 used my debit card for the first three or four days than paid cash for the remainder of my stay. After a few days we changed rooms from 1st floor to the 4th the rooms smelled and than my dog started itching and developed a rash/hives, and bites we asked for housekeeping to clean room and they told me I couldn't get room cleaned on weekends and would have to schedule a cleaning but I could strip my bed sheets and get new linens and borrow the do the vacuuming and change my bed sheets myself. After I did so the bites continued on my dog and than me and my husband started getting them as well. I complained to the front desk several times and was told they would bug domb and spray room after we left. I was so upset I started inspecting the room looking for the cause of our bites finding mold, inches of dust all over different areas of room, A/C unit had food pieces stuck in vent very unsanitary and decided to leave hotel while packing clothes up found bugs on our clothe. Complained to corporate and was told the hotel refunded over $200 back to my debit card so I called to check transactions than found several additional charges to my debit card on several days we had paid cash and the amounts charged to my card werent even the amounts I had paid for the room in cash on those days so had to call corperate back again and report the fraudulent charges. This was the worst experience I have ever had and me and my husband now call the MainstaySuites in Dover, DE the: hotel of horrors or the bug hotel. Now I have to pay a vet bill visit for my dog to get treated for her rash/hives/swollen paws/ and hair loss do to her constantly biting and scratching and was told after my formal complants while I still am stuck waiting three five days to hear back from the corporate office to contact me back to resolve my issues. This hotel is unsanitary and cost just under $800 for my total stay. Horrible.

Not a good experience I notice that the people of color mostly AA are on one side of the hotel and the Caucasian on the other side of the hotel. I have stayed at this hotel at least three times a year and I notice this to be true. My room was at the end of the hall in a corner where we were disturbed by loud music. The bathroom directly in front of the door about two steps from the door to enter the room. The bed was 6 steps from the door you could hear everything and everyone that came down the hall.
