Earlier this week, the city’s Health Department did an inspection of the Economy Inn on Bardstown Rd. After complaints of human trafficking, roaches, drugs, bed bugs, and various other hazards, some community members were not surprised that the motel scored a 48 out of 100 in a recent review. Citations included roaches and dirty bedding. What may be surprising is that an inspection in April of this year gave the hotel a score of 100 out of 100.
Owner, Tony Aldo, says he is in the process of making approximately $700,000 in improvements. Aldo has also hired new lawyers to file an appeal and is considering filing a harassment suit against the city.
