Anthony heads to southern Vermont to put his skills to the test at one of the oldest ski slopes in the state: Bromley Mountain.
Outfitted with over 40 ski trails, this area in Vermont is a hotspot for families who love to spend time on the slopes. The 50-room, chalet-style Bromley Sun Lodge is nestled right at the foot of the mountain and features a world-class amenity that no other accommodation in the area has: ski-in/ski-out rooms.
And yet, despite being steps away from the lifts, the lodge lacks curb appeal and hospitality. Although the lobby is massive, it’s very dark and dungeon-like, and the decor is less then desirable — reminiscent of what you might find in an old folks’ home.
When Anthony meets Sonya, the front desk agent, he is confused by the very low occupancy rate, with just one room filled in the entire hotel. Can Anthony turn the lodge around and raise the Bromley Sun’s occupancy before it’s forced to close its doors forever? Find out on an all-new episode, tonight @ 10|9c.

Anthony travels to the tourist town of Negril, Jamaica, in hopes of fixing the issues plaguing the beautiful Gardenia Resort.
Anthony’s attempts to capitalize on the nearly 3 million visitors Jamaica gets every year. The Gardenia Resort’s current occupancy rate is at a shockingly low 5%, and the owner, Carlyle, is behind on his lease payments.
Anthony instantly becomes frustrated when the front desk agent tells him to do his own research to find local activities. After calming down, Anthony sets his sights on the dark and dreary lobby and his depressing room.
After his initial walkthrough, Anthony turns to interior designer Blanche Garcia to help brighten up the lobby and some of the guest rooms.
Finally, Anthony attempts to break the resort’s general manager out of his timid, soft-spoken shell by taking him on a field trip to Rick’s Cafe for some cliff jumping.
Will Anthony’s effort to transform Richard into a strong leader be enough to elevate the Gardenia Resort to the top echelon of Jamaica hotels? Find out on an all-new episode, tonight at 10|9c.

Located off the northwest coast of Puerto Rico, Rincon is home to some of the best surfing in the world, making the area popular among both locals and tourists. The Casa Verde hotel is no exception, but in recent years, the hotel has been losing money when it should be profiting. A reason for the hotel’s downward spiral is its bar, Rock Bottom. The bar is extremely loud, caters to a young college crowd and is open all hours of the night. The bar brings money in, but if things don’t change soon, the hotel will hit rock bottom itself.
When Anthony arrives in the hotel’s parking lot he sees a decrepit sign, a broken fence, rusty chains and yellow caution tape. When he walks over to the hotel, Anthony can’t seem to find the front desk. He spots a sign for the “office,” but it leads him to a dirty, dusty room filled with broken chairs. Anthony is disgusted, and he hasn’t even begun his initial walkthrough of the hotel!
The bar may be costing the Casa Verde money, but it clearly is not the only thing on the property that is in desperate need of a makeover. Can Anthony clean up the property and tone down the noise at Rock Bottom in order save Rincon’s Casa Verde? Find out on an all-new episode,

Have you ever wanted to take a vacation and stay where one of your favorite movies was filmed? If Anthony can help renovate and rebrand the Triangle T Ranch in Dragoon, AZ, site of the 1957 Glenn Ford flick 3:10 to Yuma, that dream could become reality.
However, Anthony is not alone in his quest to restore the Triangle T Ranch to its former glory. Special guest interior designer, Casey Noble from HGTV, has taken time out of her busy schedule to help renovate the lobby and guest rooms of the Arizona-based resort.
After it takes Anthony over 15 minutes to find what he thinks is the lobby, he discovers that the trailer is an abandoned mess with trash and broken phones lying on the counter. As he walks back to his car, he notices broken lampposts, cobwebs, trash littered on the ground and rancid port-o-potties. Needless to say, the Triangle T Ranch is in very poor shape upon Anthony’s arrival and in serious danger of going under.
Will Anthony and Casey be able to return the Triangle T back to prominence? Can sales and marketing expert Cindy Lew rebrand the entire resort before the ranch tanks? Find out on an all-new episode of Hotel Impossible, tonight @ 10|9c.
