Early 1970s. Four strangers check in at the El Royale Hotel. The hotel is deserted, staffed by a single desk clerk. Some of the new guests' reasons for being there are less than innocent and some are not who they appear to be.
Six strangers, (Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Erivo, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, Cailee Spaeny and Lewis Pullman) each with their own secrets, meet at the El Royale hotel of Lake Tahoe. Taking place over one night, alliances are made and secrets are revealed.
The El Royale is based on the famous Cal Neva Resort and Casino that was once owned by Frank Sinatra. See more »
After Darlene takes her stuff from the trunk of her car (at the beginning of the movie) she sees a man facing away from her wearing a black coat, pants, and hat. She asks,"Are you lost Father?" without having the benefit of seeing his priest's collar with him facing away from her. Unless she assumes that all men who wear black are priests, she would not have known to call him "Father". See more »
[about Billy Lee]
He talks so much he thinks he believes in something, but really he just wants to fuck who he wants to fuck.

Darlene is shown singing in the background over the first half of the closing credits. Aside from this, there are no mid-credits/post-credits scenes. See more »
Hotel with some dark past, 7 strangers with different stories, different goals. Sounds like promising project.
But, I am not satisfied. Everything interesting happened in first 20 minutes of movie where you discover all that matters. After that, when you think plot will make some great turn, when you are expecting something unexpectable, nothing happen. I was especially dissapointed with the end.
Movie is not that bad, I gave it a solid mark, but since I had very big expectations I am a little bit dissapointed with that what I saw. I think that this kind of movie has much better potential that this movie didn't produce or just too less.
