Anthony has one more mission left on the docket for season 2! In the season finale of Hotel Impossible, Anthony travels to the Western Riviera in Grand Lake, CO, to help the hotel draw in customers. Grand Lake is scenic and quaint, with great conditions for skiing. The only problem is … it’s empty.

Located next to the western entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park at the edge of Colorado’s largest natural lake, the Western Rivera Hotel sees a peak in occupancy during the summer but is desperate for guests during the long winter.

Mike and Jackie Tompkins, first-time hotel owners, have dumped hundreds of thousands of dollars from their personal savings account into the hotel in a last-ditch effort to upgrade the its image. However, the worn-out outdoor chairs, broken fire extinguishers, and chipped wood hanging off the side of the hotel are only a few of the issues turning people away.

Will Anthony’s efforts — combined with the help of interior designer Blanche Garcia — be enough to bring tourists to this lovable mountain town with breathtaking views, lots of outdoor activities and big local spirit? Or, will Western Riviera be forced to close their doors forever? Find out tonight, on the season finale of Hotel Impossible at 10|9c.

Plus, check out exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from tonight’s finale.

Anthony Melchiorri is back tonight at 10|9c with an all-new season of Travel Channel’s hit series, Hotel Impossible.

This week Anthony takes his hotel-fixing skills to the Caribe Playa Beach Resort in Patillas, Puerto Rico, where owner George Engel is struggling to turn a profit … and hasn’t since 2006.

When Anthony arrives, he finds trash littered across the beaches adjacent to the hotel, a cluttered front desk and guest rooms that lack décor. Plus, George’s wife Francis (the hotel’s current general manager) seems to be contributing to the resort’s financial problems.

After he comes up with a plan to restore the Caribe Playa to a top-earning, high-end resort, Anthony enlists interior designer Blanche Garcia to help overhaul the appearance of the resort’s main lobby, as well as the guest rooms.

While Blanche takes care of the hotel’s interior, Anthony heads out back to the pool deck where the hotel owners have been completely neglecting their biggest asset: the view. Will Anthony and Blanche be able to make over the resort and return it back to prominence, or will Anthony’s arrival be too late to revive the failing hotel?

See behind-the-scenes photos from tonight’s episode.
