In Brief: Mr. Krabs turns the Krusty Krab into a hotel.

Story: SpongeBob and Squidward walk to work. SpongeBob tells Squidward a story about when he was cooking and draining the fries. They get to the Krusty Krab and are shocked to see that it's been turned into an extremely tall building. Mr. Krabs greets them and tells them that the Krusty Towers is opened for business. SpongeBob asks Mr. Krabs why he built a hotel. He tells SpongeBob and Squidward about how he stayed at a luxurious hotel with good atmosphere. The bill was outrageous and he realized he could make a ton of money with a hotel. Squidward asks Mr. Krabs where all the hotel employees are. He throws uniforms on SpongeBob and Squidward.

The first guest comes in and orders a double krabby patty. Mr. Krabs tells him that if he wants to order a patty he has to rent a room and order room service. He looks at his watch and says he's only got an hour for lunch and leaves. Mr. Krabs tells Squidward to man the front desk. Patrick comes in and asks for a krabby patty. Squidward tells him that he must rent a room and tells him to sign the register, which Patrick has a little trouble with. Mr. Krabs tells Squidward to take Patrick's bags to his room and SpongeBob to make him a krabby patty. Squidward struggles with Patrick's bags. He asks him if he's got rocks in his bags. As he says that the bag tips over and rocks spill out.

They arrive at Patrick's room. Squidward turns to leave. Patrick stops him and takes a rock out of his pocket to pay Squidward. SpongeBob comes in with Patrick's krabby patty. Patrick pays him a dollar for it. He then asks Squidward to peel the bun on his krabby patty. SpongeBob comes in the room with 50 more krabby patties. Patrick asks SpongeBob to help him eat the patties. Squidward comes downstairs. Patrick calls on the phone and says he needs him back upstairs. Squidward comes up and he is shown getting SpongeBob out of Patrick's toilet. Patrick calls again, this time for a bubble bath.

Squidward comes down on the guest elevator. Mr. Krabs tells him he's an employee and can't use it. Squidward announces to Mr. Krabs that he quits. He leaves and comes back in wearing a hawaiian shirt. He tells Mr. Krabs that he wants to rent a room on the top floor. Despite not wanting to Mr. Krabs rents him a room. Squidward tells SpongeBob to take his bags to his room. His feet turn into rockets and he goes through the celing. Squidward then makes Mr. Krabs carry him up the stairs to his room. Once upstairs Squidward orders a krabby patty with cheese, tonail clippings and noise hairs and forces Mr. Krabs to eat it.

The phone rings downstairs. It's Squidward, who wants a dozen cookies. Mr. Krabs brings him up some but he wants cookies just like mother used to make. Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob go to Squidward's mother's house. They take her with them so she can make some cookies for Squidward. He tries them but doesn't like them. Squidward continues to demand rediculous things. Mr. Krabs redesigns his room several times and eventually fixes it back the way it was. Next, Squidward wants to go swimming but doesn't want to go outside so they set up a pool in his room. Squidward and SpongeBob go swimming, later joined by Patrick. After Patrick dives in the pool the pool overflows causing Krusty Towers to collapse. SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward and Mr. Krabs are in the hospital. After seeing how high the medical bill was Mr. Krabs tells the boys to pack their bags to go to medical school.

Song: (none)


Patrick: I'll need some help with my bags.

Squidward: How can you have bags? You just found out this is a hotel.

Patrick: This is a hotel?

Squidward: I'd like to order room service. I'd like a krabby patty with cheese, toenail clippings and nose hairs.

Mr. Krabs: You've got to be kidding me.

Squidward: And I want it here in 5 seconds.

SpongeBob: Yes sir! *comes back with patty* Here you are, sir.

Mr. Krabs: Well, you've got your stinky sandwich. Now eat it.

Squidward: Oh, I'm not gonna eat it. You are.

Mr. Krabs: What? You're out of your mind if you think I'm going to eat that.

SpongeBob: Psst, that's not really a krabby patty with cheese, toenails and nose hairs.

Mr. Krabs: *laughs* Now I get you, boy. Alright, Squidward. *takes a bite and spits out patty* SpongeBob!

SpongeBob: Sorry, Mr Krabs. We were all out of cheese.
