This November I will be travelling to Texas, USA and am planning on staying in both Airbnb's and motels/inns. My partner is scared the quality (regarding cleanliness and bugs) of the motels/inns will be bad, however they are sometimes just much better value for us.
We've never run into bedbugs here in the EU luckily and are unaware of how big the problem really is. While searching for reviews/tips on motels/inns/hotels we found quite a lot of comments and warnings about bedbugs, which worried us.
How big is the bedbug problem in the US really?
Is it something we can 'expect' in motels/inns?
How big is the chance we will run into bedbugs?
We're staying in five different motels/inns, all by the 'choice hotels' chain, preferably Econolodge.
