This is indeed a great way to preach. A couple of suggestions:
1. Suggest to Motel owners that fear a christian backlash that perhaps they can place a bible along with the Gita. May be also link them up with a bible distributor to get the free bibles.
2. Instead of or in addition to the “Please take this book with you if you are interested in the subject matter”, I would place a very conspicuous stamp on the first page of the book pointing to www.vedabase.net/bg where they can view it online. These days most people are online, they could also look at the other books at vedabase and it doesn’t cost the project. Also, if they are taking the book with them, may be the message can ask them to donate the book to the library if they do not want to keep it. Or ask them to leave a nominal $5 donation in place of the Gita. Otherwise I am afraid conservative christians could simply carry them out of the motel to trash them.
3. As for motel owners making a donation, I would still mention to them, AFTER the Gita is in the rooms of course, that they have the option of donating the whole or a portion or none of the cost. Basically addressing the cost issue with them after the fact.
