If you choose to leave your name with the complaint, it may appear on the public record. We attempt to respond within one business day of receiving the complaint.

The Department of Health’s Vector Control & Environmental Services Division issues permits and conducts routine inspections of hotels and motels in Allen County. Lodging establishments must meet minimum standards set forth by the Allen County Lodging Establishment Ordinance (effective June 1, 2017) for the health and safety of all visitors and guests. Inspectors ensure that bedding and linens are laundered appropriately, furnishings are in good repair, and that the rooms are free of pests and vermin.

Each establishment is inspected at least once a year and receives a letter grade that must be posted in a visible area to patrons. Hotels and motels are also inspected in response to a complaint.
