I always thought that a hotel was more expensive than a motel. Also, I was brought to say hotel, never a motel. I never really thought why.

Hotels are usually more expensive,luxurious and have things like room service and restaurants. Motels are usually cheaper and don't have any of the extra services. They also look different in the way the rooms are arranged.

Motor Hotel - A true Motor Hotel or Motel, your car is welcomed as a guest
Hotels are usually full of services and cost a bit more to you. Motels are basic rooms and the main difference has a parking place right in front of door. Motel would be like a hotel for motorized people. While hotels have a best a parking lot sometimes not even close to reception.
