Would you ship item to a motel/hotel address?

I have a purchase of an item I'm selling on Amazon Marketplace, but the shipping address is a Holiday Inn Express. I'm thinking about cancelling the order since this seems very risky for credit card fraud. Does Amazon protect me from credit card fraud? I can't tell if the buyer is hotel management or a guest (there's no room number).

As with eBay, you must ship to the address the payment service advises.

I understand that I have to ship to the address Amazon specifies, but I can choose to cancel the order if I don't want to take the risk. If there is a chargeback because the card number is stolen, does Amazon protect me?

I think I shipped to a hotel once (eBay). It worked out OK. I can see where you might be nervous though. No one can tell you for sure if it's safe or not, you'll have to decide for yourself.

Let us know how it works out.

I have had concert tickets shipped to a hotel before my arrival a few times.

I think Amazon already takes things like fraud into account before they give the go-ahead to ship. You should be protected as long as you get tracking/signature.
