My parents, Steven and Tanya Tramp, have done awful things to their guests, employees, and even their children. They are the one time owners of Quality Inn Downtown 4th Avenue (110 E Fourth Ave, Spokane, WA 99202 – 509-838-6101), current owners of Comfort Suites at the Park (195 E Penny Road, Wenatchee, WA 98801 509-662-1818), current owners of Sleep Inn and Suites Wenatchee Confluence (235 E Penny Road, Wenatchee, WA 98801 509-663-8333), current owners of Blackrock Terrace Estates (a mismanaged subdivision which the community temporarily shut down), and shadow owners of several neighborhoods in surrounding areas – though it is hard to find as they now hide their ownership through attorneys and other tactics to prevent the community and their family from tracking.


Steven attempted to subdivide his property in Wenatchee to the dismay of locals. He had many struggles and I was led to believe this was just the pitiful outcry of neighbors who didn’t want their view spoiled. I was promised, amongst other things, and on community television that: I would have one of the plots on this subdivision, and that he would NEVER sell the property without getting the approval of his sons for whom this whole project was based. Anyways, now I see it is for sale without my input. I asked him about this and he denied having made such a promise, despite me having the recording of him saying he had never and would never consider selling without my approval. Finally I got him to ‘remember’ this promise and he told me he simply changed the terms of that promise. If he gets his way, what other terms will he forget and change? Oh, he also told me the sale was a sham to convince neighbors to leave him alone so he could quietly short plat it a couple times over the following years. Which is underhanded and not fair to the listing agent. Not sure which is true, as they are mutually exclusive. Maybe there is a third truth which I don’t even know about? Funny from a man who is so adamite about his ethics, who claims it is wrong to use people. Yet he used his listing agent who clearly paid a lot out of pocket for beautiful drone photos of his property to complete the illusion that he is selling for the sake of quieting the community while he short plats the land without following through on a single promise he made to me and or the community while purporting that this is just a little old fashioned family deal solely so he can bequeath some of his multimillion dollar estate to his sons he has exploited.

Steven lied to me on multiple occasions that he would not be rolling the money from the hotel sale to another business venture via a 1031 exchange – a way to avoid paying taxes on capital gains. Turns out he did work on a 1031 exchange program. He has a secret development of properties across the river from his community in a different county, likely as a result of the community coming together to stand up to his development in their area.
