BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- A judge has granted a temporary restraining order to the owners of a crime-plagued hotel in Homewood after the city decided not to renews its business license earlier this month.

ADMA, Inc., the owner of America's Best Value Inn & Suites on Oxmoor Road, will be allowed to remain open despite Homewood leaders' best efforts to shut the business down for public safety reasons.

Since 2012, nearly 150 violent crime calls were reported at the hotel, but Friday's court ruling will keep the doors open at least until June 9, which is the date of the next scheduled court hearing.

An attorney representing the hotel's owners in the case released the following statement to ABC 33/40:

"We are pleased to report that the Court has entered a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction in favor of Americas Best Value Inn & Suites. We are very grateful for the opportunity to remain in business while we prepare for the final hearing on the merits. As always, we remain willing to do whatever we can to work with the City of Homewood and to provide the safest environment possible for our guests."
