Hotel-Motel National Master List

The “Hotel and Motel Fire Safety Act of 1990” encourages fire safety in places that offer lodging to the public. Use the Hotel-Motel National Master List to find hotels and motels that:

  • Have at least one single-station and hard-wired smoke alarm in each guest room.
  • Have an automatic fire sprinkler system in each guest room, for buildings that are four or more stories tall.
  • Are approved for U.S. federal government travelers while on official travel.
