“I felt something across my arm this morning,” Melinda Major told FOX 13 Memphis. “I looked over and it was a snake. It was laid out across my arm.”
Major said she quickly shook the garden snake off.
“It landed back on the bed," she said, "and I jumped up on the desk and called the front office for them to come.”
The staff at the Hampton Inn Memphis-Walnut Grove/Baptist Hospital East removed the snake immediately and alerted pest control, the hotel’s manager told FOX 13.
“The safety and security of our guests is at our upmost priority at all times,” the hotel said in a statement.
Major said the hotel comped her room and she would consider staying there again.
“So they took care of me. They were very nice to me,” Major told FOX 13.
