They say that somewhere in western America, some say in Utah, others say on the California coast, there’s a small motel on the side of the road.

When you go inside, it’s decorated in very common hotel attire, with the paneling and old fashioned key-lock doors.

The thing is, there’s a room in there for everybody. Everybody has a reservation for exactly when they show up, and the number of rooms available is always one more than the number of people there. One person to a room, that is the rule.

It’s said that the song “Hotel California” is based off this motel, though you *can* leave this particular motel.

I wouldn’t advise looking at a mirror for at least a month after doing so, though.

    No. No no no no no. The song is NOT about an actual hotel. It’s about life in California. Ya know, glamor, fame, Hollywood, famous people. “The Life.” Its not about a hotel. Get your facts straight.

      Oh come on, we all know what the song is about. there’s no reason to be a “fact-checker”. Its just a cutesy entry.

    Actually, it’s about drug addiction and rehab and stuff. I know someone who is a drug addict and they told her all about it when they went to rehab.

    Personally I would have finished it with “Because I’ve been there, and I’ve never been the same again. and that prune juice? You really ought to try it. It’s actually really tasty.” But then again, Your story has a good ending. I allows the mind to fill in the missing details with he most frighting thing it can come up with (Jeff the Killer, The Rake, Terrifying monster).

    On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
    Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
    Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
    My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
    I had to stop for the night
    There she stood in the doorway;
    I heard the mission bell
    And I was thinking to myself,
    "This could be Heaven or this could be Hell"
    Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
    There were voices down the corridor,
    I thought I heard them say…

    Welcome to the Hotel California
    Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
    Such a lovely face
    Plenty of room at the Hotel California
    Any time of year (Any time of year)
    You can find it here

      Her mind is Tiffany-twisted
      she’s got the Mercedes Benz, uh
      she’s got a lot of pretty, pretty boys
      that she calls friends.
      How they dance in the courtyard
      sweet, summer sweat
      some dance to remember
      some dance to forget.

      So I called up the captain
      “Please bring me my wine.”
      He said, “we haven’t had that spirit here since
      nineteen sixty-nine.
      And still those voices are calling from faaar away.
      Wake you up in the middle of the night
      just to hear them say

      Welcome to the Hotel California.
      Such a lovely place
      (such a lovely place)
      such a lovely face.
      They livin’ it up at the Hotel California.
      What a nice surprise
      (what a nice surprise)
      Bring your alibis……

    Mirrors on the ceiling…
    Big champaigne on ice.
    She said, “We are all just prisoners here”
    “of our own deivce”
    In the master’s chambers, they
    gathered for the feast.
    They stab it with their, steely knives but they just can’t kill the beast!
    Next thing I remember, I was running for the door.
    I had to find a passage back, to the place I was before.
    “Relax,” said the night man.
    “We are, programmed to recieve”
    “You can check out anytime you like”
    “But you can never leave!”
