Well, I think it depends upon the country you are located in, I really don’t think guest want to sue the hotel for bed bugs. But yes they might threaten the hotel to get compensation or a refund for their stay etc. incase the bed bug issue was pretty serious.

I don’t think every guest wants to sue the hotel for having bed bugs. But ya why not! there could be some exceptions where the guest might go to that extent to sue the hotel.

But, I think most such issues can be resolved by speaking to the guest and giving him compensation or a refund for the stay.

Again, depends on the country. But generally, you can only sue for loss or genuine suffering, e.g. lost income due to illness or longterm mental health or physical problems. I’d be more concerned about loss of the hotel’s reputation.
