Suit demands motel to ax hourly rates, condom machines and XXX videos

HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

The windows aren't open here at the Red Carpet Inn on Hornwood to let in fresh air.

"The girls are supposedly hanging out the window soliciting their business," said Assistant County Attorney Laura Cahill.

And the business of drugs and prostitution here, the County Attorney's office says is no secret.

"In the parking lot in the hallways anywhere in the premises of the hotel," Cahill said.

Anytime day or night authorities say you can see drug dealers and prostitutes pushing their wares.

Even propositioning folks visiting nearby hospitals and medical offices.

"Apparently these prostitutes aren't too discerning as to where they do their thing," said Cahill.

Cahill says even trash dumpsters have seen their fair share of paid for sex acts.

The Sharpstown Management District wanted something done if for nothing else to prevent the tragedy that happened a block away at the Southwest Inn.

"And my understanding is the Southwest Inn was very similar to the Red Carpet Inn in that it had a lot of prostitution and drug activity going on in there," said Cahill.

While the cause of the fire that killed four firefighters remains a mystery authorities believe the business did little to meet fire code requirements.

The drugs and prostitution are much worse Cahill said at the Red Carpet Inn.

"There have been over 1000 calls for service which is very high for one location over a 2 year period," Cahill said.

And 80 of those police calls, says the assistant county attorney were for violent crimes like robberies and human trafficking.

"It's my understanding there's some underage prostitution going on there as well," Cahill said.

The county's nuisance abatement suit filed against the motel calls for it to clean up it's act like doing away with hourly rates, condom machines and XXX video links.

We went to the Red Carpet Inn to get the businesses side but the clerk at the front desk declined to comment on the lawsuit.
