As Pat said, the use of the pronouns me, te, se, nos, etc does not depend on the tense you're using, but on the type of verbs: they're called "reflexive pronouns" and are only used with what we call "reflexive verbs", usually verbs expressing actions performed on oneself, like: Lavarse (To wash oneself), Vestirse (To put clothes on), or Quedarse (to stay)
So for example for verbs like Quedarse, like in your example, you do need the pronoun in all tenses:
¿En qué hotel te quedabas?
¿En qué hotel te quedaste?
¿En qué hotel te quedas?
But for verbs like Necesitar, which is not reflexive, then you can't use these pronouns, so you'd say:
Nunca necesitabas tomar un taxi
Nunca necesitaste tomar un taxi
Nunca necesitas tomar un taxi
Unfortunately, there's no "easy trick" to guess which verb is reflexive or not, and there's no equivalent in English, that's why it can be confusing, so you really need to learn them by heart whenever you come across them!
Hope this helps! Keep up the good work!
