7 Las Vegas Resorts with Bedbug Infestations in the Last 18 Months

Seven Las Vegas Strip hotels that are popular among tourists and entertainment seekers have experienced a problem with bedbugs over the past year and a half.

According to a complaint obtained by local news outlet KLAS from the Southern Nevada Health District, the hotels include Circus Circus, Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, Palazzo, Tropicana, MGM Grand, and Sahara.

A guest at Caesars Palace reported being bitten by bedbugs in January. The five-star hotel’s housekeeping team investigated the incident, found bedbugs in the room, and treated it.

The Sahara Las Vegas also had a bedbug sighting in September 2022. The hotel confirmed the presence of bedbugs in the original room and treated it. The guest was moved to another room.

Inspectors validated a guest’s bedbug complaint at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in June. The hotel operator has not responded to the complaint.

At Circus Circus, bedbugs were found in a guest room in January 2022 after a guest complained about being bitten. Bedbugs were detected again in June, in response to another guest complaint.

A guest at the Tropicana Las Vegas in late January 2023 found bedbugs in their room. The original room was treated and rented out again.

The American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) acknowledges that bedbugs can make their way into hotels through guests’ luggage or clothing. The AHLA recommends investigating the room for pests before settling in, such as checking the bedsheets, mattress seams, headboard, sofas, and chairs.

Bedbugs can be found in various places where people sleep, including hotels, shared apartments, dormitories, and even single-family homes. They are good hitchhikers and can be transported in luggage back to a person’s home.

To prevent bringing bedbugs home, the National Pest Management Association suggests washing or dry cleaning clothing immediately after returning from a trip and keeping luggage away from the bedroom.
