July 07, 2011--St. Cloud's bed-and-breakfast establishments are up to code and well run, according to inspection reports.

None of the five licensed bed and breakfasts in the city had violations on their most recent inspections. Questions about safety at bed and breakfasts have been raised after a fire Saturday at The Bohemian Bed & Breakfast killed six people in New Ulm.

The fire was reported at 2 a.m. Saturday. The inn's owner, her two daughters and three others were killed.

The Star Tribune reported today that the bed-and-breakfast's main building had not had a fire inspection and was not licensed to have lodgers.

In St. Cloud there are five licensed bed and breakfasts: Victorian Oaks Bed & Breakfast, 404 Ninth Ave. S; Riverside Guest Haus, 912 Riverside Drive SE; Heritage House Bed and Breakfast, 402 Sixth Ave. S; Edelbrock House, 216-14th Ave. N; Wild Rice Inn, 1016 Eighth St. S.

City staff noted in the inspections that each inn was clean and well kept.

The city's health department does lodging inspections.
