A troubled Warwick motel where police say they've made scores of arrests is on the market.

WPRO-AM reports that Motel 6 on Jefferson Boulevard is nearing the end of its long-term lease and isn't likely to renew. The 121-room motel and restaurant is listed at $4 million.

Mayor Scott Avedisian confirmed it's up for sale, but says it will continue operating for now.

Police have said they made 75 arrests there over the course of a year. Police say they've busted a meth lab and a sex-trafficking operation at the property.

The spate of crimes briefly caused the city to require the motel to fax over its guest list for police review. That practice was ended after critics called it into question.
