Is this a bed bug?

We found this bug in our bed in a hotel . It is flea-sized. Please tell me it's not a bed bug!

Not a bed bug. It is a bark beetle or a closely related beetle. Being in a bed would be a purely accidental occurrence for a beetle like this. They can be attracted to lights at night, so then end up indoors by accident and then wind up in very odd places.

Yay!! Thank you.
