If you need a five minute break from your day, take a look at this hilarious sketch from Saturday Night Live which parodies what to expect at a typical mid-tier roadside hotel in 2021:
This is so spot-on! From the guest room description to the complimentary breakfast (refrigerator locked at 8:59AM and sausages that squirt) to the reasons for booking:
- Business conference
- Magic: The Gathering Tournament
- Affair with old man
- Meeting stranger who claims to have information
- Funeral for aunt who died driving the wrong way on the Taconic State Parkway
- Cult deprograming
- After-prom hand stuff
- Hiding from police
There’s such an element of truth in this.
Watch it…you’ll really be glad you did. Nice work Billy Eilish!
Does this not capture the mid-tier hotel expense with a bit of hyperbole but a lot of truth? Who hasn’t seen a stain in their chair a mid-tier hotel?
