    A Hotel is a place were you get a room for a short amount of time, a week more or less.

    A Motel is similar to the hotel, except that you only want it for a day, usually while on a road trip.

    Usually, you can get a room at an Inn for an indefinite amount of time, but you aren't expected to live there either.

    And a restaurant is a place where you get food, nothing more.

    A motel is a cheap, dingy, out-of-the-way place where people who are stopping in-between places go to stay. Sometimes people use a motel for shady business dealings or sex.

    A hotel is a place to stay for visitors, people who plan to stay a few days to a week. It's a lot more expensive and it's meant for business people or independent travelers.

    An inn is a place like a hotel, but it's a lot more personal. It's a place meant for families that include hospitality. They usually provide free meals and have larger family rooms available.

    A restaurant is just a place where you eat...

    Hotel - Usually large and fancy, has a line of hotels (hilton)

    Motel - Usually much cheaper than a hotel, but the rooms are smaller and are not well cared for. Usually along a busy road.

    Inn - A step higher than a motel, lower than a hotel. Staff are not as good as hotel staff, rooms are old/slightly dirty (cleaner than a motel), cheaper than a hotel most of the time, but more expensive than a motel most of the time.

    Restaurant - ....A totally different genre. You eat there. That's it. Maybe you meant the difference between diner and restaurant? A restaurant is usually large, with a mixture of seating (booths, tables, arrangement of chairs) and has more options.

    Diner - Smaller, usually only one. Usually has homely taste to the food, and staff are much more laid back. Usually bar seating or table seating. Small.

    Hotels most often serve meals, rooms to sleep and if an expensive one, pools and bars. They are for longer term stays

    Motels are often used for one or two nights. They only offer a room to stay in.

    An Inn is a cheap place to eat and sleep over.

    A restaurant is a place where you go just to eat and drink.

    Within the olden days, a lodge used to be in town and a lot of folks arrived by way of bus and checked in and not using a automobile, a inn was placed on the highways and most folks arrived in a "motor" auto as they had been referred to as back within the day. So, a hotel on a highway was once called a "inn".
