Three women who sued a Glendale motel,saying they suffered more than 100 bed-bug bites, have settled out of court for an undisclosed amount, attorneys said Monday.

Attorneys representing the three women - Nichole Eatman, Vera Domini and Regina Martocci - said they met with representatives for Rodeway Inn-Regalodge Motel, at 200 W. Colorado St., and its franchiser, Choice Hotels International Inc., last week, to reach the settlement.

They filed a motion Thursday to dismiss the case, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court documents.

Eatman, Domini and Martocci claimed they stayed three nights in a motel room that was infested with bed bugs and their larvae. Domini sustained 167 bed bug bites while staying at the motel, DeArmas said.
