A hotel means every building or other structure which is kept, used, maintained, advertised or held out to the public as a place where sleeping accommodations are offered for pay primarily to transient guests and in which four or more rooms are used for the accommodation of such guests, regardless of whether such building or structure is designated as a cabin camp, tourist cabin, motel or other type of lodging unit. Note: Hotels that provide only complimentary food service to only that hotel" overnight guests shall not be required to purchase a food service license.

A rooming house means every building or other structure which is kept, used, maintained, advertised or held out to the public to be a place where sleeping accommodations are furnished for pay to transient or permanent guests and in which eight or more guests may be accommodated, but which does not maintain common facilities for the serving or preparation of food for such guest.

A boarding house means every building or other structure which is kept, maintained, advertised or held out to the public to be a place where sleeping accommodations are furnished to transient or permanent guests and in which eight or more guests may be accommodated and which maintains common facilities for the serving or preparation of food for such guests.
