When the manager of the hotel is shipping Woody off to the highest bidder, the address on the shipping label is Al's Toy Barn. This may reference Al the toy collector from Toy Story 2, who stole Woody because he is a very rare toy and intended to sell him as part of a valuable collection to a toy museum in Japan, evident by Woody's final bid reaching $2000.00.

Where are you going?
Mr. Potato Head:
We're at a motel. I'm checking out the amenities. You know, the free stuff? Little soaps, shower caps, shampoo, conditioner.
I wouldn't do that if I were you. In horror movies the first to leave is usually the first to get it.
Potato Head, don't leave the bag. A motel is one of the easiest places for a toy to get lost.

Toy Story of Terror was an enjoyable short entry of the now-iconic characters
After missing it the previous two years, I finally got to watch this Pixar/Disney special. While the voices of Tom Hanks as Woody and Tim Allen as Buzz are back, it's mostly Joan Cusack's as Jessie that serves as the main character in this one as she has to deal with her claustrophobia when she gets involved in a rescue of one of those two I just mentioned. Quite amusing throughout especially when Timothy Dalton voices a character who knows all the horror movie conventions and Carl Weathers does someone based on a character he played in Predator. Maybe it could have used a bit more time to make the plot more enjoyable but overall, Toy Story of Terror did what it was meant to do, entertain.
