Hotel Hell was a reality television series that aired on Fox from 2012-2016. The show starred celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, who was known for his previous reality shows Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares and MasterChef. In Hotel Hell, Gordon Ramsay traveled around the country visiting struggling hotels and motels that were in desperate need of his help.

Each episode of the show focused on Ramsay visiting a new property with a unique set of problems. He would meet with the owner and staff to assess the situation and determine what changes needed to be made. Ramsay would often stay at the property for several days, experiencing the hotel first-hand and working closely with the staff to make improvements.

The show was reminiscent of Ramsay's previous show Kitchen Nightmares, but with a focus on the hospitality industry rather than the food industry. Ramsay used his expertise to help the hotels with a variety of issues, from poor service and outdated décor to dirty rooms and unsanitary kitchens. He also offered advice on marketing and branding, helping the hotels attract new customers and turn around their businesses.

One of the unique aspects of the show was Ramsay's willingness to get his hands dirty. He would often jump in and help the staff with day-to-day tasks, such as cleaning rooms or serving guests. This approach helped to build trust between Ramsay and the property's employees, as they could see that he was not just there to criticize, but to help them improve.

Another key element of the show was the before-and-after segments, which showed the dramatic transformations that occurred during Ramsay's time at each property. The changes ranged from small cosmetic upgrades, such as new paint or bedding, to major renovations, such as the addition of a new restaurant or bar. Ramsay also helped to improve the staff's attitudes and work ethic, which often resulted in improved customer service and better reviews from guests.

Overall, Hotel Hell was a popular show that appealed to fans of Gordon Ramsay's previous reality programs. The show was well-produced and entertaining, and the dramatic transformations that occurred at each property kept viewers engaged. Ramsay's tough love approach earned him criticism from some viewers, but many appreciated his willingness to help struggling businesses and his ability to get results. The show ended in 2016 after three seasons, but it remains a popular and memorable addition to Ramsay's reality show portfolio.

Hotel Hell is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (22 episodes). The series first aired on August 13, 2012.
