The actors, director, producers and film crew all resided at the hotel while they were filming to keep production and travel costs down. Sara Paxton alludes to rolling out of bed in the morning and being on set within a five minute span. The older members of the cast admitted that the stay at the hotel was slightly frustrating as most of the younger crew members liked to party at all hours of the night and the noise would carry.

Pessimism is just a higher form of optimism. If you expect nothing from people, then you go through life being pleasantly surprised.

This movie had a lot of potential with an interesting hook and great location but failed to deliver all around.
A horror movie relies on tension and atmosphere to build fear. This movie takes a very long and tedious time establishing characterization instead of mood. Unfortunately, the two main characters and in fact all the characters in the very small cast are so two-dimensional and stereotypical that all that time was thoroughly wasted. To add insult to injury, there is even a cheap jump scene at the beginning that breaks what little mood is established by the opening credits and pans of the set. When the movie finally reaches its climax, it still is not scary or horrific. It just falls flat. The ending was unsatisfying as well with no real resolution or twist.
It's just good enough to keep you watching and waiting for something to happen, but it never does.
