Help! Which entry level job should I take?

In looking for entry-level work, I interviewed for a ton of positions, and somehow have gotten myself into the spot of being hired for 3 places all at once. Need advice ASAP as two of them want me to start as soon as tomorrow!

-First job: Temp agency. Entry level office admin, $10/hr. Answering phones for a small moving business run out of a converted home office, with filing/general office work as needed. Told is "part time to full time hire" but not sure if this is B.S. or not. Would possibly translate well into a later career in general office work.
-Second job: Store/location manager of a small nail salon and retail boutique. $11/hr. Full time, no health insurance.
-Third job: Hotel front desk attendant. $10.50/hr. Full time, strong possibility of advancement to front desk manager in a few months. (new hotel with new management, undergoing renovations, understaffed and wants to promote quickly)
Complications: I like the people who run all three business very much! All three businesses have good reviews, good/upbeat managers, nice staff, and honest practices. They are all local legit businesses that are fairly close by. Help!
Feedback from people who have done anything at all similar is greatly appreciated. Particularly interested in hotel management- is it possible to get stuck at front desk forever, and how likely is it that hotels promote people pretty quickly? The hotel industry seems pretty strong in my location and I could probably get another hotel job with experience pretty easily. The other two jobs are a little less corporate/professional.
