Economy Inn passes follow-up inspection, other problems found

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Louisville motel that's been at of risk of being shut down for months has been given the okay to stay open.

The Department of Public Health and Wellness inspected the Economy Inn on Monday, November 2, to follow up on violations that were cited on October 5.

Monday's inspection only included the rooms that had violations on October 5. Inspectors found that all the previous violations in those rooms were corrected.

Passing the follow-up inspection means the motel's operating permit will not be suspended.

During the inspection, the department also investigated a recent complaint on a separate vacant room. Broken tile, burn holes and stains on bedding were found in that room. Inspectors will return to the Economy Inn in 30 days.

The motel is now on a six-month inspection schedule because of its history of violations. If another inspection is failed, the Department of Health and Wellness plans to revoke the operating permit.
