How do you prevent bringing bed bugs home from a motel room?

Traveling by car. Found bed bugs in room this morning

If you have a garage, I suggest going straight into it as soon as you get home. (this is gonna sound weird but whatever) avoid any carpet or fabric. Strip down so that you are wearing NO clothing, and go shower immediately. Put ALL clothing and fabrics into a black garbage bag and leave them outside, in direct sunlight. For a couple weeks. The heat should kill the bugs. Vacuum your car well and again, shower. This should prevent them from coming into your home, but you can check your own bed. Lift your sheet and look at the edge of the mattress (the part that sticks out) If you see red spots (blood) then your bed has them. DO NOT SLEEP SOMEWHERE ELSE. You will move them to that place! If they come into your home, the best thing is to call professional help to exterminate them. Hope this helps! My mom was able to prevent them from going into the house, hopefully you can too! Best of luck :)

You really can't but try not to sleep in a hotel that has bed bugs. Lift up the sheets and check to see if there are any.
