    This is in response tot the class action against Expedia co.
    While on travel from Kansas City to New Mexico, I had to travel trhough
    Lineral, KS , stayed at the Hilton Inn Suites. Strangely, they had no one bed room available except a suite for over $150, but the room was not only hardly clean, but roaches and multiple other bugs were crawling throughput the suite.
    I wrote a complaint in the morning prior to departure, no one paid any attention to my lack of sleep for all this price in Lineral Kansas .
    Please advise if I could join the lawsuit since I had to stay at another place soon after due to my lack of sleep (I am 70).
    I was also late for the first day of work.
    I am available at the above-captioned e-mail: gslonka@kc.rr.com
