Google Universal Different From Google Maps

Results different when included in SERPs

Can anyone explain why Google Maps seems to return different results when embedded in the SERPs?

For example, search for "Chicago hotel" in the SERPs. You'll see 3 hotels drawn from Google Maps in the top spots. Now click through "local business results for hotel near Chicago, IL." You'll see different hotels coming up in the top 3 spots.

So ranking in the top 3 on Google Maps doesn't guarantee you'll make it into the SERPs?
