Does the term "motel" make you think of a low quality place?

We're on a family vacation in Maine, and so many places here are "motels" but many of them look pretty nice. I usually think of them as cheap and dingy.

Makes me think of quick, simple, outside door place to stay.

It makes me think it's cheap, but probably comes with free wifi, unlike the bigger, more expensive hotels which always try to rip you off for it.

No. The phrase "by the hour" does, though.

I haven't seen it myself. Supposedly seen in hotels frequented by prostitutes - I see it a lot in detective novels.

Interesting. It sounds sketchy.

Yes. It makes me think of a rent by the week or month place.
