A Third Troubled Hotel On Columbus’ North Side Will Close For Now
A third north Columbus hotel will be shutting down at least temporarily because of reported crime problems.
The Super 8 at 1078 East Dublin Granville Road near the I-71 and State Route 161 interchange will be closing its doors for now.
After Judge Daniel R. Hawkins granted the city’s request for a temporary restraining order, the hotel was being evacuated and boarded up this morning.
City officials say there were more than 300 police runs to the Super 8 in each of the last two years, and more than 112 in the first half of this year. Those included drug deals and prostitution complaints.
The State Fire Marshal also found several fire code violations during multiple inspections in 2013 and 2014.
