A lot depends on the law of the state in question, but generally a landlord is allowed to make reasonable rules for the use of the property. I doubt that a rule that prohibits children from playing outdoors is reasonable. But whether it is or not, this is a good time to find different lodgings. Soon. Good luck.

It is private property. They can set the rules but you don't have to give them your business.

No, its not legal. However, if you are in a dangerous neighborhood, you should not let the kids out without an adult watching them.

Sure, IF the children are tearing things up around the motel. Ask the management why, and they may explain because they are bee-bee kids.
