A Hotel is usually many stories, has a large common lobby, and services such as food, room service, and such. Motels are a term meaning Motor-hotels. Or hotels for motorists. Motels are single level usually, and you can drive up, or close to, the entrance to your room. Hence the motor-hotel conjunction. But as we say here in the business when someone asks "What is the difference between a hotel and a motel?" we say "About $150 per night".
