I would say something along the lines of “A special, discounted room rate at XYZ Inn is available until (place date here.)  Please mention the Moriarty-Doe wedding when making your reservations.”

You do not need to make any special transportation accommodations for anyone who is attending your wedding.  The fact that you are providing taxi bus service for guests staying at the inn where you have reserved a room block is quite nice for those guests.  However, you do not need to provide alternative arrangements for others.

Ditto to @Brielle:  

 

I would never expect a Bride & Groom to pay for my hotel!

It took me a while to get the wording right, as we also set aside a block of rooms – but were not covering the cost. I don’t think our guests expected us to – at least I hope not. Here is how I worded it:

“We invite you to stay with us at the Hotel Name in City Name. When booking to make reservations please mention the Bride/Groom Wedding Block to receive a rate of $$/night.”

In my opinion, if his brother chooses to stay in a different hotel – he should not expect you guys to take care of his transportation. Just because he has expensive taste, does not mean you should have to pay to indulge him.

No one else is going to expect you to pay for their lodging. On our wedding website, I wrote that hotel room blocks are available at two hotels and then made sections for each hotel that detailed how far they are from the wedding venue and how long the group rate will be available.
