    Hi there,

    I have a few bites the look like bed bug bites, that I most likely got from staying at a hotel. However I came home and inspected my room and found this guy. It doesn't look like a bed bug based on photos I've seen online, but it doesn't look like anything else I've found photos of either.

    Is this a bed bug/something I need to worry about?

    Beetle. One of the carpet beetles. Looks like the adults from your other posts where the larval shed skins are pictured.
