German term or phrase: Etap-Hotel
Was bringt Ihnen eine bißchen besseres Hotel im Gegensatz zu einen Etap-Hotel?

I know they mean a plain common hotel, but is there any specific term for it?

Thank you, guys!

English translation:Etap Hotel = Name of a Hotel Chain
Explanation:
Coming from France there are all over Europe cheap Hotels belonging to a chain. One of these chains is "Etap", another one is "Formule 1" or "Good Morning Hotels" in Sweden. These Hotels offer a reasonable room with TV, radio, bathroom, but no service. In some hotels you check in on a machine. And sometimes you get a breakfast offered, of cause for extra charge. The pricing is between 25 and 50 Euro.
