A Tennessee woman who stayed at a hotel in the state reportedly woke up Friday morning with a snake on her arm.
“I felt something across my arm this morning,” Melinda Major said. “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 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.
