Yes, adding a specific link-local route is probably better. In
practice, the various Awful Hotel Network implementations would give
you an IP configuration that was something like this
IP Addr: 10.0.2.67
So the simpler thing for me to do was to hack the netmask to be 255.255.0.0.
But I agree, adding IP-specific route for the gateway out to the
interface is the best thing to do.
