A  motel is an establishment that provides paid lodging, usually on a short-term basis, with convenient parking for motor cars at or close to the room. It is an abbreviation of motor and hotel. They are generally cheaper than hotels. Motels may sometimes but not always provide a number of additional guest services such as a restaurant, breakfast service or swimming pool.

How to Map

Add a node at the centre of the building and tag it with tourism=motel. You can name it with name=*.

Add in features like leisure=swimming_pool and amenity=restaurant where appropriate.
