    Talking Re: my english is not good

    Neither one is grammatical. Perhaps you want to say "Can you tell me where a hotel is?"
    Or more pleasing to the ear: "Can you tell me where I can find a hotel?"
    Direct and no fat: "Where is a hotel, please?"
    Or: "Is there a hotel nearby?"

    Or: "I'm looking for a hotel in the neighborhood" or "for a nearby hotel."

    It depends of course on what you mean, before "correctness" can be determined.
