La Quinta Inn and Suites (1695 Outlet Center Dr. in Selma) received a score of 87.5% during an inspection on June 12.

The restaurant at this hotel was in violation of eight standards. Of these, five were considered critical violations.

Critical violations included finding the glass reach-in cooler holding dairy products at 54 degrees F (when all cold foods must be below 41 degrees F), and employees were washing their hands with dish soap and napkins because the handwashing sink didn't have hand soap or paper towels.

Some violations were corrected during the inspection.

No restaurants received a failing grade.
