The Days Inn in East Ridge-- now partially condemned.
Not only because of code violations but also bed bugs.
"They're gross and so.. It's not okay. If I wouldn't sleep there, I wouldn't want anyone else to have to either," says Erik Hopkins, East Ridge Public Safety PIO.
Officials with the Hamilton County Health Department tell us the owner was already working to resolve the infestation after complaints a few weeks ago.
"I think we had found a room or so. So we were already beginning to work with that owner. He had already had a contract with terminix to begin treatment of some of the rooms there, is my understanding," says Lowe Wilkins, Program Supervisor for the Department of Environmental Health.
But the critters spread.
Now, officials say, those staying will be moved to another building or offered a refund.
This isn't the first time an East Ridge hotel has seen these insects.
The Crown Inn now closed due to the blood feeding creatures.
"They were given a period of time to remediate the problem and weren't able to so, so the property was closed," explains Hopkins.
Despite two recent incidents officials say bed bugs aren't very common.
"We have approximately 105 hotels in Chattanooga, maybe 108 approximately, and we do not have, we have very few problems with the number of rooms in Hamilton County," says Wilkins.
The Days Inn will have 10 days to treat the infestation.
