Hello. My name is***** an a Florida licensed attorney and I will be happy to answer your question.I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
Unfortunately, deposit by a definition is considered non-refundable if the consumer fails to follow through with the rental, so the motel does have the right to request deposit to be put down toward any future rental and while consumer can file formal complaint against the motel with Florida Attorney General Office and the local Better Business Bureau, it is not very likely that such deposit would be returned if consumer failed to follow up with the rental as agreed.
I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.
I wish you the best of luck and God bless you!
