The word motel has a different connotation in Brazil. Motels in Brazil are actually short-stay hotels that allow people privacy for "romantic" encounters. You will see signs advertising these Motels in many different places around town and along the inter-State roads, but they are not the same as hotels and inns. So, please be advised that if you want a quiet, family-friendly place to rest and spend your holidays, do not ask directions to a motel!
