Hello. My name is***** am a US licensed attorney and I will be happy to answer your question.

Please note, I cannot comment on your specific situation, as this services is only limited to general information and for any legal advice / legal service you should contact your local attorney.

When did you discover mice and why did you remain staying at this hotel after discovering mice issue?

Thank you for your follow up.

Unfortunately, if the hotel guests continued to remain in the hotel and agreed to pay for the hotel stay after the discovery of the mice, such action to voluntarily stay at the hotel despite the mice issue, would mean that the guests waived any rights to claim lack of accommodations / conditions and the only option would be to complain to the hotel management and see if they would issue any credit for the stay as a courtesy.

I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.

I wish you the best of luck and God bless you!
