State Officials Close SeaTac Motel for Numerous Violations
SeaTac – Unsanitary sheets and mattresses forced state officials to shut down a SeaTac motel early Wednesday morning, investigators said.
The New West Motel, located at 21450 International Boulevard, violated construction, maintenance, electrical, fire and safety codes and is operating under unsanitary conditions, according to the Washington State Department of Health.
Conditions in the motel rooms include dangerous wiring installations and broken and boarded-up windows that would prevent guests from escaping a fire.
Other conditions include mold and unsanitary mattresses, bed covers, sheets and mattress pads.
The state was forced to suspend the license of the motel after learning of these violations.
The motel must be vacated by Feb. 15 and may not offer accommodations until a hearing is held.
It has 20 days to request a hearing and contest these charges.
