Default Help needed in identifying a bug

My husband just pulled a bug off of him. It left a bite three times as big as the bug itself. It was a tiny flat round bug with no segmentation. I'm terrified because we stayed in a hotel this weekend in Kentucky. It was a pretty nice hotel but I know hotels are known to have bedbugs. I know the picture isn't the most clear but it was such a tiny bug. The legs were teeny tiny and the body was a grayish black and the head was jet black.

The obvious first thought is a tick of some sort but the pic is blurry

Based on the appearance of the bite sites, it appears to be a tick.

Since this occurred in Kentucky, here is some info from the UK College of Agriculture on the ticks in that state and what to do and watch out for.

Pic is fuzzy. But that looks like a tick to me. I have never seen a bed bug. Not sure what they look like.

After looking up pictures of seed ticks, I believe that's what it was. I've only seen one or two ticks in my life time but they were bigger than this guy. I'm just relieved we didn't bring bedbugs home with us! Thank you everyone!

1. I looked up different types of bedbugs, and it's possible what you have is one.
2. I am FAR from any type of expert, so I could be completely wrong.
