What is the best way to check for bed bugs in a hotel room & have you ever found any? I plan on traveling soon so any input is appreciated.

Pull up the comforter and sheet on the bed (I do all four corners) and check the corner of the mattress and under the mattress. If you see small brown dots (bedbug poop and blood stains) then chances are there are bugs. You can also check the furniture and behind pictures. If you suspect bugs at all, change rooms or at a minimum leave your luggage in your car. Just my suggestion.

If there's new furniture such as headboards or if the headboard is pulled away from the wall good indication. You can also check out your hotel before you book at

1) Go to which is a website exclusively for travelers, which lists motels/hotels/resorts by state that have had reports of bedbugs. Avoid those stays at all cost.

2) When traveling put your luggage IN THE BATHTUB. Take a hair dryer & extension cord (12' will work well) with you; strip the bed to the mattress and SLOWLY run the hairdryer along the seams of the bed. If bedbugs are present, they will come out almost immediately with the high heat setting of the dryer. If none are present it is safe to "unload."
