Could you also provide further hints: American/European/Asian movie? Present days or time piece? BW or color ?

American, present day or maybe 1990's, not sure what city it takes place in.  More info:
-The girl is white, maybe 20 years old.  She is hired to take care of a father and his daughter.  She is very naive and hasn't been out in the world.  She has only worked as a domestic. 
-A man comes to visit the father and daughter.  He may be the son/brother, but he isn't welcome because they think he is a loser. 
-The unwelcome man is owns the motel where he lives, but it is in horrible shape, run-down and in need of cleaning and repair.  He hasn't made any effort to clean it up or try to make any money with the motel.
-The mean daughter and her mean friend see that the hired girl likes the loser man when he comes to visit.  They write emails (or maybe they are paper letters in the mail) to the hired girl acting as the man saying how much he liked visiting with her and how she should come to visit him.
-They mean girls send the hired girl the man's address and she packs her suitcase and takes a bus(?) and shows up at the motel, but he doesn't even remember who she is.  She realizes that the girls had tricked her and feels stupid
-Man has a low-class girlfriend who drinks/takes drugs and shows up at motel and gets mad that girl is there cooking and cleaning for him.  The man and his girlfriend fight and break up.  
-The man realizes what a nice girl she is, and starts to have feelings for her.  
-The girl starts cleaning and repairing the motel, and over time they make it a nice motel and they have a baby together and she is very happy with her life.

Thank you with your help!
