I wish to inform you that sex in a motel/hotel can be legal or illegal depending upon various factors. Various factor which determine legal aspect include relation between persons, free consent by parties, age of parties etc. Generally the restriction is not on hotel/motel but restriction is by due to other factors.

OK, thanks.

What about the situation where both parties agree to have sex and they are a married couple (both parties over age 21). Would that be legal??

I am unaware that that would be illegal in any western country.

Inside a motel/hotel room yes. In the hotel bar, dining room, office, restaurant might bring unwanted attention from the men in blue, however. Many hotels/motels earn considerable revenue from X-rated channels meant to inspire such activity we might mention.

Having sex in a hotel/motel room is legal. The venue, as long as it is not to be considered public scandal, is not factor. Instead, it will be the individuals engaging in the act. If it's rape or bigamy or adultery happening in a hotel/motel room, then that's what makes it illegal.
