The motel has a Yelp page has been put under an “Active Cleanup Alert” after the artist’s followers flooded the page with reviews.
A make-up artist with thousands of followers on social media, claims that they found “hundreds of maggots” in the bathroom during a recent stay at an expensive motel in California — and asked her fans to “avenge” her by flooding the hotel with complaints.
Hayley Johnson took to Twitter earlier this week to share the “disgusting” story, saying that she and her friend had booked for a stay at the Palo Alto Inn on 9 July, when, after hopping in the bath, she observed something that looked like a “Tic Tac” on the floor.

“Well guess the f— what. It was not a tic tac. It was a maggot,” she wrote. “Then I really open my eyes. Maggot. Maggot. Maggot. HUNDREDS OF MAGGOTS, IT SEEMS. COMING DIRECTLY FROM THE WALL. ABOUT THE BATHROOM.”
She also shared a video of what appeared to be the floors covered with live maggots.
After the dress up and reportedly the observation of more maggots crawl into the bedroom and hastily drag her possessions from the motel — Johnson claimed that she and her friend on the height of a “rude” front desk manager of the problem. Another employee finally came out to inspect, she said, but told her that he couldn’t even see the maggots.
Johnson said that he eventually offered to move them to another room, but the hotel refused their request for a refund for the $300 room. At this point, Johnsen said a manager “flip[ped]” on them, asking them to call the police.
The policeman took only “seconds” to determine that the room was not suitable to stay in, Johnson claimed.
A spokesman for the Palo Alto Police Department confirmed to the Mercury News that an officer was sent, but not the writing of a report, because “this was not a police matter, it is a civil matter.”
