Cheap Motel …. by the Half Hour !

     Who says all of the Fort Lauderdale Motels are too expensive !


                


      This beauty will only set you back $17. – for the half hour!


        


     The “motel”, is just off Sistrunk Boulevard, just west of I-95.

     And it’s quite well known – to the area’s prostitutes, the Fort Lauderdale Police, and the City’s Nuisance Abatement Board!

     It’s currently under control of the Nuisance Abatement Board – for the second time.

     Here is a Police Report which will tell you all you need to know about the “services” provided within! 


                
     The Motel is a scourge for this low income neighborhood, but has been tough to control, or shut down, even though the Nuisance Abatement Board and the Police Department continue to try.  

     But they have been able to arrest the owner – 

                                 
                  owner – 60 year old Tania Ouaknine, booking photo

      Ouaknine says – “They say I am running a whorehouse,”  “I run a motel. The only thing that I don’t have is the five stars.”

    
The City and the Nuisance Board don’t buy it. They have imposed conditions that Ouaknine must abide by, or face stiff fines and possible closing, including –

     ….. placing a sign saying the property is under control of the Nuisance Board

     ….  Place 16 cameras around property, making the video available to Police

     ….  Prohibit room rentals for less than one day duration

    …..  Pay investigative fees of $672.00

    ….. Face a $250.00 daily fine if the items in the Nuisance order are not followed
