Tagging a business that spans multiple buildings?

Hi, there’s an untagged motel in my area that I’d like to add to the map. However, there’s a slight snag.

This building is the one with the main entrance / signage / etc, but it’s immediately obvious when you visit the location that this adjacent building is part of it–it’s where the rooms are.

These two buildings are physically disconnected, but they’re both part of the same ‘thing’… they’re not really separate locations, so I think it would be blatantly incorrect to duplicate the motel-related tags on each. So what is the best practice in cases like this: Should I just tag the main building? Use a multipolygon? Make an area representing the motel that covers the entire grounds? Or something else?
