Last hotel I was at worked that way.
Before anything worked - I had to open a browser window, which was
redirected to their home page - and agree to the terms of usage.

This was the case with wired and the wireless that they offered.

Make sure your browser allows javascript - the place I was at used
javascript in their agreement page thingy. So if you have a firefox
extension that only allows it for specified sites, or you have it
disabled, you may need to adjust your browser settings.

The wired one only made me agree once a day - but if I changed mac
address (attached another computer), it expired the old mac address and
made me agree with the new one.
