Area hotels given clean bill of health

Ever wonder when the last time the sheets were changed or if anyone has ever vacuumed under the bed? Luckily, area guests can relax. County health records give Rim Country hotels a clean bill of health for well, staying clean. The Roundup requested inspection records dating back several years for 21 area hotels/motels from the Gila County Health Department. Records reveal nearly no establishment had recent violations and the few that did were minor, ranging from dirty baseboards to adding new caulking around tubs and screening windows. Shane Stuler, Gila County Division of Health and Emergency Services environmental health manager, said it is rare to see anything beyond minor fixes and that most hotels do a good job cleaning and sanitizing rooms. Gila County inspectors check hotels once a year, looking for 31 things like clean bedding, hot and cold water in the bathrooms and rooms free of vermin. Insects are always high on Stuler’s list when he looks through rooms. He says he checks the corners for spiders and cockroaches and looks under the mattress for bed bugs. There has never been any evidence of bed bugs in the Rim Country, he said.
