Fire Department lists hotels without sprinklers

As reported by the Austin American Statesman, these neighborhood motels do not have sprinklers:
AUSTIN SUITES HOTEL, 8300 Interstate 35
AUSTIN VILLAGE MOTOR INN, 601 MIDDLE
BUDGET INN, 9106 I-35
BUDGET LODGE OF AUSTIN, 9220 I-35
MOTEL 6, 8010 I-35
MOTEL 6, 9420 I-35

“The fire Sunday that caused $1.5 million in damage to the Americas Best Value Inn off of Interstate 35 in South Austin, which did not have a sprinkler system, led to questions about whether all hotels must have sprinklers. The Austin Fire Department says that those built before 1988 are not required to have them, and today released a list of the 23 hotels in the city that do not have sprinklers.”

Neighborhood Plan Objective Q.7: Ensure proper maintenance on absentee landlord-owned properties throughout the NLCNPA.
