HOMEWOOD, Ala. (WIAT) — Owners of a Homewood hotel are fighting back after the city refuses to renew a business license. Members of the Homewood City Council voted on March 13th to deny a license renewal for America’s Best Value Inn & Suites on Oxmoor Road near I-65. The hotel was ordered to cease operations by 5 pm this past Friday.
Two hours before the deadline, owners of the hotel filed a lawsuit against the city of Homewood. The lawsuit alleges the city clerk refused the license renewal without giving any reason.
Police records show officers have made more than 100 arrests after calls from the hotel since 2011.
