Dear Angelique,
Your photo lacks critical sharpness, which would make an exact identification impossible, but this sure looks like a Bed Bug to us.  We would strongly recommend extreme caution when unpacking to ensure you do not transport the wily creatures back to your home.

Thank you, unfortunately we did verify last night that it was a bed bug.  We took our clothes and put them in trash bags for transport to the laundry mat, got rid of our suite case and had the hotel purchase us a new one, and have informed them that if I find one in my home or car, within the next 12 months, they will be financially responsible to fumigate it.

Congratulations on holding the hotel accountable.

Absolutely. Unfortunately, a friend of mine was in a place that was infested, and I’ve seen first hand how hard it is to get under control.
