He and his hospitality team of experts criss-cross the U.S. visiting motels, hotels and bed and breakfasts that are all struggling to make a profit. Not surprisingly, most of their problems are found in housekeeping. Apparently, one boutique hotel was using a duvet cover that hadn't been cleaned in 18 months. We can only imagine the torrent of F bombs Ramsay unleashed when he discovered that.
You can watch a sneak peek of the TV show here on TVLine.com. It's a little fuzzy but it will still gross you out. Think cockroaches in the bathrooms, floral wallpaper and bedspreads, a creepy little girl ghost and the aforementioned bedstains. Despite the scary scenarios (including one hotel employee fainting and 911 being called), it looks like Ramsay really helps get the hotels back on track as several of the owners and employees are shown saying, "Thank you, Gordon."
Aside from putting small hotels and their owners on the path to success, Ramsay might also emerge as a new consumer advocate for hotel guests when it comes to getting their money's worth. Ramsay told the TV critics yesterday:
A dentist's office is immaculate. Kitchens and hotels should be exactly along those lines....We need to complain and demand our money back. In order for the industry to get better and the hospitality sector to raise its game, we need to complain more."
We couldn't agree more. That's why we're always open to hearing what you have to say about a recent hotel stay!
Hotel Hell premieres on August 13 at 8pm on Fox. And you know we will be watching!
