Overnight layover in Jakarta- No fully empty pages passport

So I'm flying from Seoul to Singapore with a long layover in Jakarta TOMORROW. I wanted to leave the Jakarta airport and stay overnight at a hotel but I realized I don't have a full empty page left in my passport (only two halves on separate pages). Internet research tells me this may be an issue in getting the visa on arrival in Jakarta. So, should I risk trying to get the visa and being rejected or just stay overnight in the airport? I prefer to sleep at a hotel.....

I read that if you rejected due to lack of empty pages they put you back on a plane to your country of embarkation. Once I arrive in Singapore I will immediately head to US embassy for more pages! Any advice is helpful! Last time I plan such a short trip~

If you are entering Indonesia through Bali, you must have two fully blank passport pages in your passport. If you are entering through other ports of entry, you must have at least one blank page. Indonesian immigration inspectors do not consider amendment pages in your passport as blank pages. If your passport is nearly full, be sure to obtain extra blank passport pages before you travel - go to How to Add Extra Pages to Your U.S. Passport. If you don't meet Indonesian entry criteria properly, you may be denied entry on the spot with no recourse and put on the next available flight departing Indonesia.
