The Ramada Hotel in Long Island City has bed bugs in Room 303, at least two guests who stayed there said.
On Sept. 19, a couple experienced exactly this when staying at Ramada Hotel in Long Island City. Gym teacher Steven McCarthy of Jamaica and his girlfriend were savagely bitten more than 40 times in room 303 by the tiny insects.
“We were horrified,” McCarthy said. “We immediately went to complain.”
He said he called 311 to report the problem and was even more shocked at the response he got.
“They told me I had to schedule an appointment to investigate the hotel room,” McCarthy explained with a laugh. “I told them I wasn’t there anymore. I didn’t live there.”
The couple reached out to the Department of Housing and Preservation inspectors, they responded, but the hotel refused inspectors to be allowed to enter the premises after four attempts to do so.
“Are they still renting out that room?” McCarthy wondered aloud. “I just think people should know about this.”
