3 Women Sue Glendale Motel Over Alleged Bedbug Bites

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Three women are suing a Southern California motel because of bedbug bites.

Nicole Eatman, Vera Domini and Regina Martocci have filed suit in Los Angeles against the Rodeway Inn-Regalodge Motel in Glendale, as well as its franchiser, Choice Hotels International Inc. Trial is scheduled for May 2.

The women want restitution for medical bills and mental anguish for dozens of bedbug bites during their three-day stay in October 2009.

Choice Hotels spokesman David Peikin told the Los Angeles Times that the motel is an independently owned and operated franchise and he declined comment.

    How do we know they didn’t bring the bedbugs to the motel? Perhaps the motel should counter sue

  2. rock says:

    why would they stay three days if they were in mental anguish and being bitten by bed bugs.

  3. AlexW says:

    I’m concerned about the bedbugs. How are they doing?

  4. Paul says:

    One word: Motel

  5. john says:

    how much are a few bedbug bites worth???

  6. Jeannie says:

    they just sued now? after all this time?

  7. CDAVIS says:

    ALL MOTEL & HOTELS KNOW WHEN THEY NEED TO REALLY CLEAN HOUSE PRIOR TO MANDITORY STATE INSPECTIONS…. EVEN THE LARGEST HOTEL & RESORTS HAVE BED CRITTERS. PEOPLE ARE NASTY IN GENERAL, THE CLEANING CREWS ARE NOT PEST CONTROL… BUT THEY SHOULD NOTIFY REGULATORS BEFORE -THEY TAKE THEM HOME WITH THEM. MOTEL/HOTEL BUSINESSES WILL REMAIN IN BUSINESS REGARDLESS. GOOD LUCK FOR THE LADIES SEEKING TO GET RICH OFF A DIVE HOTEL NOW KNOWN AS THE CRITTERBUG INN.

    Two words: TORT REFORM

    If they can’t prove that the bedbugs were from the motel and not elsewhere, they should pay the motel’s legal fees. What next suing cities because of mosquito bites?

    That said, and despising shakedown lawsuits, hotels and motels must take more steps to eradicate pests.

  9. Lenny says:

    Pathetic people like this embarrass America.

  10. Jack Meyhoffer says:

    These three should’ve stayed home. All they were doing at the motel was smacking their clams. They didn’t need a motel for that.

  11. Ed Rooney says:

    Hate to break it to you broads, but if it was from a motel in Glendale, they are probably AIDS related sores.
    Good luck with that.

  12. susy says:

    The bites are no big deal. If they took them home, it would have cost them thousands of dollars in extermination.

  13. dnt4gett says:

    very bad situation over there and no doubt their decision of sue is good and it would be done by anyone who face such problem in that area.
