TAMARAC, Fla. - A professional poker player sued Extended Stay America after a 2014 stay resulted in what she and her lawyer say are bed bug bites, Local10.com reported.
Kimberly Stone stayed at the Tamarac hotel for a tournament when she woke to bug bites covering her body, Local 10 reports. Now, three years later, she says she still has scars from the bites.
Stone claimed the hotel staff were "not surprised" when she brought the issue up to them, and they simply suggested she visit an urgent care and switch rooms. Additionally, she said she saw the hotel staff change the sheets in her room, making no other effort to remove the bugs.
The suit suggests the hotel was aware of the issue, but was negligent in eradicating the problem. Also, other customers have left online reviews claiming their rooms were infested with bed bugs.
