Similarities to the Eagles "Hotel California"
20 January 2016 | by cathedra-31469See all my reviews

This is my absolute favorite Outer Limits episode. Does anyone else see the similarities between what happens in "The Guests" and the Eagles huge hit song, "Hotel California?" Lots of similarities, in my opinion. think about it... "you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave..." As soon as I heard the Eagles' song "Hotel California" way back in the day, it brought back memories of this episode from The Outer Limits -- even the Eagles'album cover had the same spooky kind of feel as the storyline in this episode. Has anyone else noticed? Feedback or comments, anyone? Maybe it's time for me to send an e-mail to Don Felder and ask him directly, huh?
