Caesars Palace and MGM Grand are among 7 Las Vegas hotels with bed bugs last year, health inspectors found

  • A Nevada health agency found bed bugs in seven hotels on the Las Vegas Strip.

  • Tropicana Las Vegas, which had bed bugs in February, said it immediately isolates rooms after a complaint of bed bugs.

  • Hotels are vulnerable to bed bug infestation because of their high turn over in occupancy.

Over the past year and a half, health inspectors have found bedbugs in seven resorts on the Las Vegas Strip, according to a Southern Nevada Health District Complaint obtained by local news outlet KLAS.

Circus Circus, Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, Palazzo, Tropicana, MGM Grand, and Sahara were on the list.

None of the seven hotels named in the complaint responded to Insider’s request for comment on Sunday. All of the resorts except two also declined “repeated requests for comment” from KLAS.

MGM Resorts, which was found to have bed bugs in January 2022, told the outlet in a statement that it has “comprehensive procedures in place to address and resolve any issue that may arise.”

Bed bugs were found in one room in the MGM Grand and the room was “treated,” according to KLAS.

Inspectors found bed bugs inside Tropicana Las Vegas in February. The hotel told KLAS in a statement that bed bugs are “highly unlikely.” Still, when the hotel gets a complaint about bed bugs, it will “immediately isolate the affected room and its surrounding areas,” the resort said.

Hotels are particularly vulnerable to bed bug infestations because of their high occupancy turnover, according to The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

People typically bring bed bugs into hotels unknowingly through luggage, clothing, blankets or pillows that are infested, according to the agency.

“There is little that can be done to prevent guests from bringing in bed bugs,” the agency says. “No hotel is immune to a bed bug infestation.”

According to the report, the best way to get rid of bed bugs is to “clean, disinfect, and eliminate their hiding places.”

Because bed bugs can live for several months with no food or water, the agency says exterminators typically recommend the use or pesticides to get rid of them.

The Southern Nevada Health District did not immediately return Insider’s request for comment Sunday.
