This is the first thing I do when I walk into a hotel room, no matter how nice the place is...

I put my luggage in the bathroom which usually has tile flooring. Then, I pull the blankets and sheets off the bed and very carefully check for bed bugs. I look for droppings and or blood stains, especially in the corners of the mattress. Once I've determined that it's safe, I bring my luggage into the room and prop it on a luggage stand or a desk chair. I usually hang up my pants, shirts and dresses, and leave everything else in the suitcase.

Even after checking for bed bugs, I still will not put any of my clothes on the bed or armchair/sofa just in case there are other kinds of insects lurking about, such as spiders or weevils. (Is your skin crawling yet?)

Am I the only one who does this? Let me know in the comment section below or on our Facebook page.
