Plus, impress your date with a bit of trivia: The roots of motels—or motor hotels—can be traced back to World War II. Manila was heavily bombed and hotels were badly damaged. The American GIs had no place to stay, so these motels offered food and rooms at cheap rates. In the 1950s, the budget hotel industry declined, since the GIs had to return home. The more luxurious hotels began to get back in business.

The motel’s sleazy rep takes root in the 60s, when nightclubs and disco clubs began to flourish in Manila. Times were hard for motels back then, so they started offering “short time” rates that ranged from one to three hours of private time for couples.

Now, motels are trying to clean up their image by providing great food and family-friendly packages. In 2008, a well-known motel chain even closed down “for the glory of God.”
