    Default upto 100 dollars or upto to the range of 10 dollars.

    2)I want a hotel room upto 100 dollars.

    My friend wrote this sentence. I think the natural one would be "I want a hotel room upto the range of 100 dollars." Am I correct?

    "Up to" should be two words.
    I will pay up to $100 for a hotel room.
    I want a hotel room for under $100.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Alternatively, you could use:

    I want a hotel room which costs up to 100 dollars.

    $100 is not a range. It is an exact figure, so we wouldn't say "up to the range of $100". You might want to book a hotel which has prices ranging from $50 to $100.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
