Holland inspectors to close Economy Inn twice in 2 years


HOLLAND, Mich. (WZZM) -- For the second time in two years, city inspectors are planning to shut down the Economy Inn on US-31 because of ongoing health and safety violations. On Wednesday, they sent a final letter to motel managers letting them know their lodging license would not be renewed.

Each day, there's a cycle of traffic here on US-31. Right next to it, another pattern is repeating itself at the Economy Inn.

Motel employees like Perry Michaels have a message for any troublemakers inside: "I will warn them once, and that's all I'm going to warn them."

However, the motel itself has received numerous warnings from city leaders about ongoing health and safety violations. Now, for the second time in two years, the Economy Inn could be forced to close.
