I rent a room in my home to airbnb tenants. In Oakland CA renting longer than 30 days give renter the right to continue renting. Does this apply to travel nurses renting for 90 days?  If so is it safer to not host longer than 30 days?

Important question!

In California, tenants rights are clear, & strict. May I suggest you do some serious research on Tenants Rights in California. Definitely determine what constitutes a tenant, and what are the responsibilities of a landlord. What is the definition of "habitability" as well. Do seek to understand the differences between "renting to tenants" and "hosting short term guests" on this platform. Nolo Press is a good place to start. Definition of terms is very important, and using inappropriate terminology can get any of us into a situation we might not ultimately relish. 

I host guests in a room in my house, at maximum a week reservation. I am not looking for a housemate, and definitely wouldn't want to have to hire  legal help to remove someone who had cause to say they were a tenant. 

Homework time!

@Susan38 I cannot believe there is anything in the legislation that varies the rules according to the particular job a guest (tenant) has. As a minimum make sure you have a separate (from Airbnb) contract in place with the travel nurse.
