According to Florida law, a hotel may be held accountable if it fails to implement reasonable precautions to prevent or deter the type of criminal activity that resulted in a guest’s injury (bodily injuries):

An innkeeper may be liable if he fails to take reasonable precautions to deter the type of criminal activity which resulted in a guest’s injury. See Orlando Executive Park v. P.D.R., 402 So.2d 442 (Fla. 5th DCA 1981). In the case before us, there was no evidence that the innkeeper could have deterred or prevented appellant’s injury by reasonable precautions which were not taken. There was no evidence that this incident was foreseeable or that the motel had any practical or reasonable method to protect its guest from or prevent this unprovoked hit and run attack.

See: Reichenbach v. Days Inn of America, Inc. – 401 So. 2d 1366
