Plot Synopsis

Chef and hospitality expert Gordon Ramsay travels across America, fixing struggling hotels, mediocre motels and bad B&Bs. After more than a decade of running restaurants in some of the world's top hotels, Ramsay knows firsthand the crucial importance of surpassing guests' highest expectations. In this series, Ramsay finds hotels at their worst -- from filthy bedrooms and mold-ridden bathrooms to dreadful room service and incompetent staff -- so he can put the hotel owners and employees to work, as he attempts to turn around these failing establishments. HOTEL HELL returned for its second season on Monday, July 21, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on Fox. In the season opener, Gordon travels to Las Cruces, NM, to revamp the Meson De Mesilla Hotel and Restaurant, while helping owner Cali Szczawinski. In the rest of Season 2 Ramsay traveled to hotels located in Longview, WA (Monticello Hotel); Applegate, OR; Murphys, CA; Pipestone, MN; Starkville, MS; West Dover, VT; and Woodbury, CT. Season 3 of HOTEL HELL premiered on Tuesday, May 24, 2016 at 8pm ET/PT on FOX, with Gordon Ramsay traveling the country to Ft. Pierce, FL; Island Park, ID; Harpers Ferry, WV; Southbridge, MA; Newton, PA; Chelan, WA; and Loudonville, OH, to experience struggling hotel establishments firsthand. Ramsay delves deep into the inner workings of each business -- from their management practices, staff chemistry and morale to cleanliness, food and decor -- as he attempts to get these establishments on the right track. He will tackle a hotel owner who hoards clothing in the locked closets of the guests' rooms; a historic inn, where shocking rumors about the owners have left their rooms empty; and a family-built castle, that has fallen on the shoulders of the ex-wife. Some owners work with Ramsay to address the issues he's identified, while others refuse to take the advice they sought out, and face the consequences. In the end, it's up to the owners and their staff to work together to keep their hotels open. In the season opener, Gordon visits Island Park, ID, to help rescue the stunning Angler's Lodge. The owner, who built the lodge with his own hands, has lost his passion after a family tragedy and it has almost cost him his business.
On Tuesday, July 26, 2016 at 8pm ET/PT, FOX premiered the Season 3 finale of HOTEL HELL. In the season ender, "Landoll's Mohican Castle," Gordon heads to Loudonville, OH, where he meets a woman who works countless hours to keep her hotel and events business afloat. After assessing the situation, Gordon urges her son to learn the business and take the reins from his mother. Together, they throw a fairytale wedding at the castle.
