A Letter From Vanda at ‘Hotel Hell’s’ Calumet Inn in Pipestone, MN.
EDITOR'S NOTE (APRIL 1, 2019): This story, originally published in August of 2014, has begun recirculating. Please note that the information here may no longer be up-to-date.
My wife and I were there for some of the taping of the episode in May of 2013. We had about 5 seconds of our footage make the final cut.
We were the husband and wife freaking out at the moldy fridge in the Honeymoon Sweet. That was the room that Gordon Ramsey slept in during his stay at the Calumet.
I've talked to many folks about last nights episode and it was almost unanimous that the show portrayed the owners of the historic hotel in a rather harsh fashion. (You can see some clips from last show below.) Perhaps these observations are valid and warranted, perhaps not. As always there are two sides to every story.
Below is a facebook post from one of the Inn owners, Vanda, featured in the "Hotel Hell" episode. Give it a read and let us know what you think.
