** Even the decor was impractical, since rooms often didn't have enough seating or table space to eat ordered food and there were ridiculous layout designs like the bathtub not being in the bathroom.

I TheStoner: The father of the family that runs the Applegate River Lodge. He has no business sense, caring more about the "vibes" of the place while his wife and sons do the work. Gordon finally got fed up with him and just politely asked him to just sit out the rest of the episode as he clearly did not care about what Gordon was trying to do and Gordon wanted to focus on the people actually running the place.

* {{Hypocrite}}: No other way to describe Kevin, the innkeepers' son at the Angler's Lodge. At their morning meeting on Day 2, he upbraids Gordon for swearing in front of his parents the night before, only to immediately use the word ''"shit"'' right in front of them. Gordon has great fun mocking his double standard.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gordon has to give this to the hotel owner in the very first episode after hearing some of the appalling stuff he was doing, including withholding pay from his employees and cheap-skating on food quality... while simultaneously spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on paintings and antiques and charging ''fifty-four dollars'' for a single meal.

** Generally speaking, every hotel has at least one employee that's leagues above the rest of the staff in terms of general competence; usually Gordon unofficially recruits them as his [[TheLancer Lancer]] as they try to fix the problems the hotel has.

** Karan, the manager of Towns Inn. She not only keeps her own personal belongings and clothing locked in closets in the guests' bedrooms and doesn't see a problem with this, painting over rotting dry wall, frustrating her employees who have to cook with old and outdated equipment and reheated food ([[OnlySaneMan to the eternal frustration of the Head Chef]]) and sees absolutely no problem with this.
