This is not a location, but if you specifically spelt me with an 's' you would spot me in several bedrooms.

I could go on, but I feel that's enough of me for now.

What am I?

HINT 1: 29/06/19

word sword spelt pelt

HINT 2: 30/06/19

no longer a location

HINT 3: 01/07/19 (1)

synonyms of location

HINT 4: 01/07/19 (2)

an act commonly performed in the bedroom

HINT 5: 02/07/19 (1)

I could go on, but I feel that's enough (insert here) for now.

HINT 6: 02/07/19 (2)

With this meta-hint, I have made a comprehensive description of the word at hand.

HINT 7: 03/07/19

Synonym of location beginning with p

Edit: New answer after a lot more hints...

Exposition

Here is why:

"This is not a location" -> it sounds like a location, but is something different
"but if you specifically spelt me with an 's' you would spot me in several bedrooms" -> sexposition, well, google it yourself
"I could go on, but I feel that's enough of me for now." -> exposition means explanation, so enough hints for now
HINT 1: Add an s
HINT 2: no longer a location = ex position
HINT 3: position is synonym of location, see HINT 7, starts with p
HINT 4: reference to sex
HINT 5: enough exposition means enough explanations/hints given
HINT 6: a hint saying enough hints given is indeed a hint for our problem
HINT 7: see HINT 3

Old answer:

My first though after reading the question was

we need to find a word starting with an $s$ which can be found in a bedroom but without the $s$ it means "location" or is a "location"

But Hint 1 tells me

word -> sword
spelt -> pelt
so i can add $s$ or remove it

Hint 2 tells me

after removing or adding the $s$ it is no longer a location

Hint 3 tells me

it is not an exlicit location but a synonym

So after rereading Hint 1

I noticed, that "spelt" is a word from the question, so I searched again and found $$spot$$ which is an synonym of location and after removing the $s$ we have $$pot$$ which of course in modern times is rarely found in bedrooms but it fits all the hints.

Grasping at straws here, you are

The letter X.

This is not a location,

...but X marks the spot

but if you specifically spelt me with an 's' you would spot me in several bedrooms.

X is spelled E X. Prepend an S as shown in Hint 1 and you have something that you might see in bedrooms, if you're the sort to go looking.

HINT 1: 29/06/19

word sword spelt pelt ... tells us to put the 's' in front of you

HINT 2: 30/06/19

no longer a location ... "no longer" = ex

HINT 3: 01/07/19 (1)

synonyms of location ... spots, which Xs mark

HINT 4: 01/07/19 (2)

an act commonly performed in the bedroom ... well, yes.

... You cad. :)

There isn't a whole lot of details here to go on, but some things that several bedrooms would all have in common, all together and guaranteed, would be:

Walls, ceilings, floors, and doorways.

my best guess is

alarm clocks. They are in several bedrooms - "I could go on" may refer to the running time

I guess:

"eats"

Because:

Here is my description = deets (details)
A location = street, maybe "suite"
Spelt = wheat
Spelled with 's', spot = seat
In bedrooms = sheet
Could go on = beat (as in: the beat goes on)
Enough of me = replete, or maybe "complete"
