In brief: Bed bugs?

Yes.
Here are some tell tale signs that your hotel room could be infested w bedbugs. First you may notice blood smears on bedding. Blood smears usually turn black over time. Second you may see amber colored “shells” which occurs when the bed bug sheds it's exoskeleton. A third sign of infestation is bug feces on sheets (brown- black dots). The fourth sign can occur with a heavy infestation – >.

– an odor that is described as “musty sweet” due to the bug's secretions. Don't expect to “see” the eggs. They are is small crevices, translucent and about 1/16th of an inch in length. You normally don't see a bed bug (they are nocturnal). The adult is 1/4th inch long & flat. ****Try this site before making hotel reservations: http://bedbugregistry.com/. It is a " public database of user-submitted bed bug reports from across the United States and Canada. Founded in 2006, the site has collected about 20,000 reports covering 12,000 locations.** If you weren't asking about bed bugs please clarify and re-ask question.
