MANHATTAN, N.Y. – A couple from California is describing their birthday trip to New York City as a bedbug “nightmare” at an upper west side hotel.
WABC reported that Elgin Ozlen posted a video to YouTube showing that his hotel’s bed at the Astor on the Park in Manhattan was crawling with bedbugs.
“We were expecting a vacation to remember the rest of our lives, and we will definitely remember it for the rest of our lives, but it won’t be a pleasant memory,” Ozlen said.
Ozlen said he noticed that his girlfriend had a rash on her arms, legs and abdomen and that’s when they discovered the bedbugs.
Olzen told ABC News that the hotel was apologetic and gave him a refund.
