‘Hotel Hell’ Episode Guide (Aug. 18): The Calumet Inn in Pipestone, MN

“Calumet Inn” (08/18/14) – Gordon Ramsay travels to Pipestone, MN, in a frustrating attempt to save a once-historic Midwestern hotel for two stubborn sisters. The Calumet Inn was given to Rina and Vanda as a gift from their father.

But little did he know that his gift would become so problematic for the girls. With every member of the family unhappy, the sisters are forced to make a decision – should they shut down the hotel, sell it or hand over the responsibility of running it to a proper general manager?

Find out if Ramsay can restore the historic inn in an all-new episode of “Hotel Hell” airing Monday, Aug. 18 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

After more than a decade of running restaurants in some of the world’s top hotels, Gordon Ramsay knows first hand the crucial importance of surpassing guests’ highest expectations. In its debut season, “Hotel Hell” was last summer’s highest-rated new series. Now Ramsay is back for a second season, hitting the road to fix some of America’s most horrendous hotels, troubled inns and struggling resorts, many of which are on the brink of closure.

Ramsay will travel to locations including Applegate, OR; Las Cruces, NM; Longview, WA, Pipestone, MN; West Dover, VT; and Woodbury, CT. To come to grips with the problems, Ramsay will endure hotels at their worst – from filthy bedrooms and mold-ridden bathrooms, to dreadful room service and incompetent staff – all so unsuspecting guests don’t have to. After he has uncovered the most pressing issues at each place, Ramsay will put hapless hotel owners and employees to work as he attempts to turn around their failing establishments, doing all he can to rescue these floundering hotels.

Some owners will work with Ramsay to address the issues he’s identified, while others will refuse to take the advice they sought out, and face the consequences. But, in the end, it will be up to the owners and staff to make the changes they want to see. The success of each business is truly on the line, so one thing is certain: if they won’t take Ramsay’s advice and make the changes required to meet his impeccable standards, they will never check out of “Hotel Hell.”

“Hotel Hell” is produced by One Potato Two Potato (part of the All3Media group). Gordon Ramsay, Ben Adler and Patricia Llewellyn serve as executive producers.
