A. that   B. where
I think the correct answer should be B.  Then if I choose A , what's the difference between A and B?

You can either say:

It was in the hotel where he stayed. or

It was in the hotel (that) he stayed in .

See the diffrence? Now you know why Answer A is not correct.

I don't agree.
you can only choose B and you don't need to add "in" at the end of the sentence.

It was in the hotel that he stayed.
This is a structure we usually call as "emphasizing structure" in which we can only use "that" and if the noun we are gonna modify is a person then we can use "who". You simply can't use "which".

where

B where is the correct answer.

The word "where" means "in what place."

A is right .  It's emphasizing clause.
