Is your next vacation hotel up to sanitary standards? If your proposed hotel is in Florida, you can check out their inspection record with today’s State Agency Database Highlight:

Food & Lodging Inspection Reports can be searched by name or license number. According to the website:

Deficiencies observed during routine inspections are described in inspection reports, with references to the relevant section of Florida food regulations, and are classified as either critical or non-critical. Inspectors are standardized through extensive training, and are required to document all violations observed. Inspection reports include notice to the operator when violations must be corrected, usually either a date certain or by the next routine inspection. Frequently, violations are corrected at the time of inspection, indicated as corrected on site.
