On this week’s episode of Hotel Impossible, host Anthony Melchiorri is in North Carolina to help the Peros family keep the High Meadows Inn & Nikola’s Restaurant alive. The hotel’s co-owner is a hopeless optimist, and Anthony is forced to give him a much-needed reality check.

In order to help the Peros family maintain their home and business, Anthony enlists the help of designer Leslie Segrete to renovate the hotel’s guest rooms and lobby. Although the space is nice, the lobby at the High Meadows Inn is a cluttered mess, with too much going on around the front desk and unnecessary artwork all over the walls.

On this week’s episode of Hotel Impossible, host Anthony Melchiorri is in picturesque Palermo, Italy, located on the island of Sicily, to help the Hotel Solunto Mare  and its owners from losing their piece of prime real estate overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

After his initial walkthrough of the Solunto Mare, Anthony can’t seem to understand why the hotel is struggling; that is, until he comes across the banquet room. Anthony feels that the banquet room is ugly and outdated, and fails to feature its best assets. To help give the Solunto Mare a fighting chance, Anthony enlists the help of designer Casey Noble to revamp the room so that it plays up the hotel’s exquisite views of the Mediterranean Sea.

Will Casey and her team be able to impress Anthony, and reawaken the general manager’s passion for the hotel before its too late? Or, will Anthony’s Italian gusto not be enough to save this diamond in the rough? Find out tonight on an all-new episode of Hotel Impossible at 10|9c.

Will Anthony be able to help the struggling Carnival Inn and bring peace of mind to the Brickweddes? Or will the Carnival Inn succumb to its mounting problems and drag down its owners along with it?
