A local motel is adding an undesirable aspect to a neighborhood in Arcadia.
Ever since a Motel 6 replaced a La Quinta Inn at 47th Street and Thomas Road a couple years ago, neighbors say they’ve witnessed questionable activity.
This week, Motel 6 management met with neighbors to talk about their plan to change policies.
The Motel 6 rents rooms from $60 to $90 a night.
Witnesses claimed to have seen drug addicts and prostitutes at the motel while nearby businesses have seen an increase in break ins.
Motel 6 released statement regarding the neighbors’ concerns.
“Motel 6 is committed to providing clean, comfortable rooms and great service at an affordable rate. Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our guests, our employees, and the communities in which we operate. We do not condone unlawful activity at our locations and the actions of a very small number of individuals are not representative of the overwhelming majority of our guests. In this case, we are working with the owner of this independently owned and operated location to look into the matter more closely. We regularly review our entire portfolio of properties and our franchisee-owned businesses to ensure that all of these properties meet our standards and requirements.”
