Is an Inn the same as a Hotel in FL? I am staying at an Inn currently by the beach. It is an open area. Is this By reading the laws I can ccw in my room without issues OR go outside on the property? I can also sign a 6 mo lease here without issues and use it as my residence. It is a U shaped building. In the area outside there is a fountain with giant gold fish, a patio area, and a gas grill which everyone is allowed to cook on. Sorry for such a confusing question, but there are a LOT of questionable people who walk in front of our place and sometimes come in our patio (center) area. After the sun begins to set it gets worse sometimes. I'd like to have it while we're cooking outside and just enjoying the night and weather here. If it is illegal to do so, I of course will not until my permit is issued. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
