10 Hotel Chains With the Worst Bed Bug Infestations

PJ Media compiled reports from The Bedbug Registry to tally which hotel chains had the most bed bug sightings. Of course, this is highly dependent upon each individual hotel, but it’s still an interesting analysis. The most reports seem to come from some of the “value” chains, though both Marriott and Hilton made the top 10 list. In terms of cities, New York was number one followed by Chicago, San Francisco, and LA. Check out the full analysis here.

Chains with the greatest number of bedbug reports: 

  • Holiday Inn (732)
  • Days Inn (560)
  • Super 8 (550)
  • Best Western (519)
  • Hampton Inn (505)
  • Comfort Inn (503)
  • Marriott (395)
  • Hilton (338)
  • Motel 6 (314)
  • Quality Inn (305)


  1. It would seem that correlating size numbers (room count of chain, etc.) would make this list meaningful.

    The same applies to city data: aren’t these the most hotel-heavy?

    Without contextual data, this report is absolutely meaningless. Not even interesting.
