Inspectors have condemned a Michigan motel that has been featured in a YouTube special on America's dirtiest motels.

The Detroit Free Press reports that the condemnation notice was posted Thursday after Royal Inn Motel operators failed to fix numerous code violations.

Inspectors say they found animal waste, human waste, trash and other debris in hallways. They also found many of the rooms had mattresses on the floors, and unusable tubs and toilets.

The 200-room motel on 8 Mile Road has several hundred residents. The notice gives residents until Sept. 5 to vacate. Officials with the Oakland County Health Division say they'll assist residents to transition from the motel.

Township officials say the building will be demolished if the violations aren't completed within a week of closing.
