Review summary

My cabin had bud bugs. I got ate alive three nights before we finally demanded the mattress be changed. Complained everyday. Was sent to the infirmary twice where I was told I would have to pay $125 to see the dr. No one was willing to help my situation. I was in pain from infection and swelling. Have written a detailed email to guest care and still no response. I will have permanent scars from these bite.
