There are a variety of tools available that make building a website fast and relatively easy ... or so I hear. I build from scratch and don't know what the experience is really like for the beginner. I'm just posting because it looks like you need a basic orientation ... that's my guess.
There are tools that you can buy and use on your own PC ... then upload pages to a website .... where you have leased space .... a free example is geocities.com ... you can go there and sign up for a free site.
Their upgraded (pay for) sites include tools that make it easy to create business web-sites, although I can't advise on how far geocities or any other will go to meet your needs. For example, for a motel, you might want online booking. I don't know if that's as easy to do as online selling (which is something of a classic, supported by many tools.)
Of course, if you want to, you can run your own server on your own computer and have your own local area network at the hotel: but that's another technical job.
As groovicus asks; are you planning on doing this yourself?
