Hotel/Motel Licensing

Hotel/Motel Licensing

A Hotel is any building equipped, used or advertised to the public as a place where sleeping accommodations are rented to temporary or transient guests. A license is not transferable or refundable and any change in location or ownership requires a new license.

What types of services are offered through the Scott County Health Department Hotel/Motel Licensing and Enforcement Program?

The Hotel/Motel Licensing and Enforcement Program:

  • issues licenses for hotels and motels
  • allows for routine, unannounced inspections of the premises
  • requires inspections as a result of complaints.

Is there a fee for the service/program?

There is no fee for information about hotel and motel inspections. License fees for the facilities are based on the number of rooms in the hotel or motel.
