The Cheap Hotels screenplay revolves around two women eavesdropping through a thin door on a neighbouring conversation, livelier and more engrossing than either had expected.
The two ladies had booked a cheap hotel online at the last minute, and they got what they paid for. A pokey room with a locked joining door to connect the rooms if both were booked. The door itself isn’t particularly sturdy and the gaps surrounding it are wide enough to allow sound to freely flow.

Cheap Hotels screenplay story inspiration
Those of us who have plenty of disposable income or spare cash typically haven’t experienced this, but if you’re staying somewhere more remote, you may have.
In the age of being able to book cheap accommodation online, it’s easy to get a nice enough room with an ensuite bathroom and a small balcony, but it’s often slotted alongside a door that feels like cardboard, and the gaps surrounding the door frame seem designed to allow sounds and smells to permeate. From there, unless you’re wearing earplugs and/or nose-plugs, the time you spend in said hotel room is very much shared. And if you’re able to speak the same language as your neighbors, there are no secrets kept.
On one particular trip to Rome, I experienced this firsthand. My partner and I were able to hear everything coming from next door, and listen in we did.
