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.

The Hotel/Motel Licensing and Enforcement Program:

  • issues licenses for hotels and motels
