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.
All the cast - and writer-director Drew Goddard - took a pay cut in order to get the film made.
Father Daniel Flynn:
I'm not really a priest.
Darlene Sweet: Yeah, no shit.
Dock says the robbery took place near Stockton. There are no mountains that near the city. Also, snow is so extremely rare in central California.
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.
