We discovered bedbugs all over the bed, box springs, and floor after only fifteen minutes in bed. We called the hostess at her home and she came to the B&B and agreed that the place was infested. The bugs were all over my wife and me. We packed up at 11:30pm and drove one hour back to our home. My wife was up all night just trying to clean everything we had taken with us, but it was futile: the bedbugs are now all through our house. It has been a week now and we are still working to get rid of the pests. My wife is still being bitten at all hours of the day. We decided to hire an company (Terminex) to come and eradicate the bedbugs. It's going to cost us $2,000 and only a 90-day guarantee. The owner of the Wayside Inn we almost stayed in said he would refund our money: I have to call Citi Bank tomorrow to see if that happened. We had to put all of our clothes, linens, shoes, and curtains in plastic bags, and will have to take them to a commercial laundromat to put them through very hot dryers. This will require almost a full week more on top of the week we have already spent. What a nightmare! On top of all this, we missed the funeral of a close family member, the reason we went to Ellicott City in the first place. We would never stay in that place again. Obviously, the owners were complacent about the way they took care of their rooms.
