The next episode of “Hotel Hell” starts off on a light note for Gordon Ramsay, but it doesn’t stay that way.

In Monday’s (July 28) episode, Ramsay visits the Monticello Hotel in Longview, Wash., which was about to celebrate its 90th anniversary when filming took place in June 2013. The first thing Ramsay notices, as you can see in the clip above, is a collection of classic cars — all of which belong to the owner and one of which has a license plate reading “HTLHELL.”

That’s amusing, but per FOX’s episode description, the rest of the hour deals with heavier stuff: “Through the doors of the hotel lie a plethora of issues — the first being that owner Philip Lovingfoss is struggling to come to terms with his alcohol addiction. With the staff feeling neglected and underpaid, Ramsay needs to help Lovingfoss get back on track, both personally and professionally.”

“Hotel Hell” airs at 9 p.m. ET/PT Monday on FOX.
