Can I rent an Airbnb/Hotel room at 17 if I turn 18 before the date I check in?

However those friends live with their parents and I think the best thing for both me and them would be to get my own place to stay while I visit.

I’m 17 and I already bought a flight with Delta (you only need to be 16 to travel alone). However, I want to book a hotel as early as possible and I won’t be 18 until October. I’ll be in college and will probably be busy with midterms so I probably won’t be able to book soon after I turn 18 either.

Is it possible to book an Airbnb/Hotel room while I’m still 17 or will I have to wait until I’m 18? I want to book as early as possible and if I can now I’d love to. Thanks for any input and advice.
