Welcome to the Shady Palms Motel. Check out is at 11, if you live that long…
Ever get the feeling you’re being watched? You know, the hairs on the back of your neck start to tingle like your own personal version of Spideysense and you get that eerie feeling that you’re not alone? Welcome to Shady Palms! The skeezy hotel where every creepy feeling of something lurking around the corner or under your bed is not only intensified, but it’s actually happening.
Yes, the Shady Palms has its hidden cameras but it is the highly questionable clientele and their nightly activity that puts the FBI on high alert. Now, Sanjay, the office manager, must now work overtime to hide his “side project” from those snooping around his hotel. But will his naughty little web business even be a worry for the investigators when there are terrorists to find and people actually disappearing from the hotel?
Pornographic websites, employees just out of jail for crimes they did/did not commit, cleaning up dead bodies, Federal investigations of terrorist activities and creepy crawlies. Those are just a few of the thrills and chills you have waiting for you within the walls of the Shady Palms hotel. Entertaining and questionable characters you love/hate or love to hate all going about their messed up lives in a setting that would make Oscar the Grouch feel the need to bath.
