Generally speaking, you must be 18 years old with a valid ID, and many hotels require a major credit card in your name. I have heard of some exceptions, where it is difficult if not impossible to rent a hotel for a teen during spring break for example. The previous answer incorrectly stated that you must be 23 to rent a hotel room and a car, and in both cases, age 18 is generally accepted. For car rentals, valid ID is required, anyone under 25 usually must pay quite a hefty premium, and only select rental companies allow this.
