You can do either. If you have the budget to have them printed on matching card stock, awesome, but it’s definitely not necessary unless you’re having a super formal wedding. We did invitation to ceremony and reception in one (held at the same place), response card and envelope, and a Moo card (love them!!!) that directed everyone to our website for hotel etc info. Everything was tied together with a ribbon. Had I not discovered Moo cards, we would have just printed a strip of paper with the a link to the website on it.

Also, the fewer pieces of card stock you have, the less your invitations weigh, and you save on postage. Ours were the price of a regular stamp, which is nice when you’re seinding out 100+.

It’s probably better if a map is really necessary to have ushers give them out at the end of the ceremony. Most people will forget to bring a map that came with the invitation. As for hotel information, I’d put that on the reception card. I’d have reception info on it and then at the bottom a statement like:
