state-own hotels


Explanation:
The right word is PARADORES. A network of state-owned hotels, usually rather small and housed in historical buildings. Hope this helps. Good luck!
p.s. If it is only one then it should be PARADOR

Parador / paradores


Explanation:
"paradore" is probably a misspelling for the above. A 'parador' may be a bead & breakfast, or, depending on the context, also a rest area at the side of a freeway where you find a restaurant, retrooms, a gas station, and a convenience store.

I wouldn't translate it if speaking of Spain


Explanation:
A "parador" is a historical building essentially owned by the state which has been converted into guest accommodations cum restaurant facilities. In function, it's meant to serve as a motel (a stopover for people driving through) although it's certainly classier and can run into 4- or 5-star rates. It's not generally used for long stays, but is popular as an escapade or for a weekend.
